A good Christian gentleman once said, while preaching: “If your theology will not drive you to respond with compassion to the social ills in society – then seriously consider changing your theology!” It is strange that any evangelical Christian should ever have needed to ask whether social involvement was their concern, and that controversy should have blown up over the relationship between evangelism and social responsibility. The Holy Writ, both in the Old and New Testaments, is replete with injunctions and examples of practical social involvement.
