Half a Gospel

“We can be grateful for the many kind, caring, generous Rotarians, Lions, Boy Scouts, and the like who do great acts of kindness in the world. But the motive is as important as the strategy. The good deeds of Christians, done in response to God’s call, provide both physical and spiritual hope for the needy. Nelson Bell, the well-known missionary doctor said, ‘If you separate evangelism and social action, you have only delivered half a gospel.’”

David C. Forward in “The Essential Guide to the Short Term Mission Trip”
