social stuff and some Scripture stuff

my older sister and i had a good conversation last night about the difference between social activism and justice with and without Christ as the central message and method. we talked until 3 am.

our conclusion: good done to man, in order that he might improve on his life, is of no worth unless he understands the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for if that man, who is now helped, does not repent and believe...then you have only spared him a few years on this earth away from the eternity of hell. therefore, we must always, when seeking to serve, preach the Gospel as well.


something else some of you may find of use is a post on the 9marks blog about the way to go about reading and interpreting Scripture (it is meant for teachers, but can easily be adopted for anyone).
