The Pendulum swings back and forth in the church.
Back in the day it was called “The Social Gospel” and it was more about meeting physical needs than preaching the gospel. Don’t read into what I’m not saying. I’m not saying thats not important, just saying that there should be balance.
Then later it became all preaching the gospel and very little if any meeting of needs.
Fast forward to modern day 21st Century American Christianity. Social justice is more en vogue than ever before. While I am a huge fan of many of the amazing groups out there pulling people out of sex slavery, digging wells and what not, we cannot neglect the preaching of the gospel.
We don’t need one and not the other, we always need both.
