This Sounds Familiar…
There are times I will read an article or a blog post and think, “I wish I’d said that!” Then there are times when I think, “I have said that!” This is one of the latter.
I have often used World Vision as an example of institutional drift. It is, in my opinion, an institution which was once gospel-centered, but has abandoned that anchor and become “mission-centered”, leaving the gospel behind. It has, for all intents and purposes become about social work, rather than the gospel.
Dr. Peter Jones, New Testament Professor at Westminster-CA, and author of numerous sound and helpful books, has written an article well-worth reading, entitled, “WORLDly reVISIONing”. You can find it here: http://truthxchange.com/articles/2014/03/25/worldly-revisioning/
