Social Gospel Again

“Again,” referencing an earlier post I made about social efforts by churches.

Today’s is from the National Council of Churches’ letter to President Obama, urging him to cut poverty in half–

There is no greater concern among the churches of Christ than for those in this nation who live in poverty. This could hardly be otherwise because Jesus himself lived among the poor: loving them, eating and drinking with them, healing them, and speaking words of justice and assurance that God’s own love for the poor is unsurpassed.

Really? No greater concern?

I suppose this does become a church’s greatest concern when they deny the gospel and a host of doctrines fundamental to Christianity. But I’ve addressed this week already too. 🙂
