Imagine what it would be like in our churches, if there were no such division (between personal justification and social justice). If we were not invited to go forward as individuals to receive a packaged salvation from God that gets us off hell, but instead came forward to become part of something, what God is doing in the world through Jesus Christ – the reconciliation of all men and women with Himself, each other, and all of creation (2 Cor 5:19), which BTW inextricably must still include my own personal reconciliation/relationship with God.
-David Fitch, from the Article “Me, Myself, and Jesus”
I like this quote (and the whole article) a lot, since it doesn’t just point out an issue (which is really easy to do, and happens too much)… But it also points us in a new direction and gives us an alternative. Good stuff, thanks David.
