Caring about suffering- Present and Future
Preach the Gospel or run schools and hospitals, which one does God want us to do? Some would argue that we should not get sidetracked into humanitarian aid, but only preach the Gospel. John Piper puts it well, "One truth is that when the gospel takes root in our souls it impels us out toward the alleviation of all unjust suffering in this age. That’s what love does! The other truth is that when the gospel takes root in our souls it awakens us to the horrible reality of eternal suffering in hell, under the wrath of a just and omnipotent God. And it impels us to rescue the perishing, and to warn people to flee from the wrath to come (1 Thess. 1:10). I plead with you. Don’t choose between those two truths. Embrace them both. It doesn't mean we all spend our time in the same way. God forbid. But it means we let the Bible define reality and define love."
