How Missionaries Lost Their Chariots of Fire (Wall Street Journal)

Take a look at the Wall Street Journal article by Brad Greenberg titled, How Missionaries Lost Their Chariots of Fire.

Here is a quotation from the last two paragraphs of the article:

The reality is the Church should be doing both: serving the needy and spreading the gospel. This is what makes the humanitarian work of Christians different than that of the American Red Cross. Both are motivated by the desire to help others, but Christians are spurred by that Jesus thing.
The Rev. Albert B. Collver, an executive with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod's World Relief and Human Care division, sums it up well: "It is the recognition that Christ died, that he wants everyone to be saved and that his love for the church is a love for all of mankind."
