Six Degrees of Separation|
Pulitzer Prize winning playwright John Guare, in his play Six Degrees of Separation and the subsequent movie of the same name, proposes the theory that everyone on the planet can be connected to everyone else on the planet by no more than six steps.
Recently a leading news magazine in Germany, Die Zeit, decided to put this theory to the test. According to Time:
The idea of six degrees of separation suggests two encouraging things for Christians.
First, we can be thankful that knowing God is a personal experience, and so there are no degrees of separation between us and God when we are willing to repent and receive his grace.
Second, if there is any truth to six degrees of separation, no person on the planet is beyond the range of hearing the gospel.
