Mooneyham: evangelism and social action

Wednesday, October 27, 2021
    James, Peter and John, those reputed to be pillars, gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship when they recognized the grace given to me. They agreed that we should go to the Gentiles, and they to the Jews. All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do.
    —Galatians 2:9-10 (NIV)
    Evangelism and social action: one is not synonymous with the other. They are the twin mandates of the New Testament, and to neglect one is not only to cripple the Church and make its message less credible but to do violence to the New Testament teachings.
    ... Stan Mooneyham (1926-1991), former president, World Vision US, in a private communication from World Vision
    See also Gal. 2:9-10; Acts 3:4-8; 6:1-4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, strengthen our resolve to follow You.
