The clash between the individual gospel and the social gospel leaves me cold. An individual gospel is a soul without a body, and a social gospel without an individual gospel is a body without a soul. One is a ghost and the other is a corpse. Put the two together and you have a living person.

Eli Stanley Jones (1884-1973), Methodist missionary and theologian to India

Well said Mr. Jones. Well said.
