“I resent the charge that Christianity has done nothing for the poor but exploit them. I am acutely aware that the seedbed for Communism [Marxism, socialism, anarchy and a dozen other destructive political constructs] is corrupt capitalism and corrupt Christianity. But Marxist do not know that what they are seeing is the church, not the Church. The true believers in Jesus have been the vanguard of social action. I’ll match the global efforts of Christians to meet the needs of the poor against that of any single group put up for comparison.”

Let’s make our churches extraordinary in 2014. Let’s exhaust ourselves in serving the people around us and proclaiming the gospel with a life and service that is as radical as our message. Our magnificent King deserves magnificent lives from his subjects.
