Stringfellow on Social Justice & Eternal Purpose

Does God call us to take care of the poor and the outcast? Certainly! In fact, we are being unfaithful if this is something we ignore.

But let me ask another question: if I help people overcome their hunger, addiction, or affliction, but ignore any attempt to lead them to Christ and they die outside of Him, have I helped them in an ultimate sense?

If this question peaks your interest, please check out this post by Lynn Stringfellow and join in the discussion to follow – it will be an important one.
