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:
