Is Missions an Option?

I received a FREE book in the mail. I heard about it either through a homeschool email or another Christian email. It's called Revolution in World Missions by KP Yohannan. He's the founder of Gospel for Asia. The book has been a nice autobiography of how God has led KP through his years as a "pioneer village evangelist" in North and South India, when he was beaten at least once for the cause of Christ and lived on about a dollar a day or less. Then through his journey to the US for his education and founding of Gospel for Asia.

But now the book is getting tough. He's letting us have it and I can't disagree.

Here's the beginning of Chapter Nine.

"If the apostle Paul had not brought the Gospel to Europe, foundational principles such as freedom and human dignity would not be part of the American heritage. Because the Holy Spirit instructed him to turn away from Asia and go West, America has been blessed with its systems of law and economics - the principles that made it rich and free.

In addition, the United States is the only nation in the world founded by believers in Christ who made a covenant with God - dedicating a new nation to God.

Born into affluence, freedom and divine blessings, Americans should be the msot thankful people on earth.

But along with the privilege comes a responsibility. The Christian must ask not only why, but also what he should do with these unearned favors.

Throughout Scripture, we see only one correct response to abundance: sharing.

God gives some people more than they need so that they can be channels of blessing to others. God desires equity between His people on a worldwide basis. That is why the early church had no poverty."

Ouch. But preach on brother.
