RE: Msg# 1218 Correction, USA Also Needs Gospel
I stand corrected about Msg#1218 The Good Samaritan's Compassion, it is not only needed abroad.
Hello Pastor Rice,
As you know, I enjoy your emails. I run a street ministry in Nashua NH. It would perhaps astound you to know how many people have never heard of Jesus Christ, have never even seen a Bible. In the US, we live in a post-Christian society. The message that the Gospel has been saturated or rejected in the US is old news now, so old it is no longer true. We have a whole new generation (I would argue two generations) that have never even been invited in to know Jesus. I am 54 and I never had an invitation to know Jesus from the age of 20 to 50. Did I reject the gospel? NO. I didn’t even have the chance to reject it. As a collective Body of Christ, we tend to act like we can’t evangelize in the US anymore because we have already been rejected, so let’s go to the jungles where they have never heard the Good News. Today, the jungles, where you find natives who have no idea who Christ is, is in my neighborhood and yours. We complain about our country having turned our backs on God, and then spend thousands of dollars to evangelize in a foreign country for a week. Let us redouble our efforts to reach out to our citizens, not in a stadium where we talk to ourselves, but on the streets, face to face, talking to the natives who are hurting and lost. Invite your flock to spend a week with me in NH instead of in Africa—I won’t charge them a nickel and they will learn how to spread the Good News like Apostle Paul, direct to the people, with compassion.
