Today with the George Fox Discovery Team, we discussed the assumptions of different Christian approaches to the poor.
We looked at:
– Evangelism leads to social change
– Social action is pre-evangelism
– Transformational ministry
– Christian presence
For each approach we asked the following questions:
What are causes of poverty for this approach?
What are the assumptions of this approach?
What would this approach use for scriptural support?
What are other examples of this approach?
What are positives? What are negatives?
How would you answer these questions?
