“I don't preach a social gospel; I preach the gospel, period. The gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ is concerned with the whole person. When people were hungry, Jesus didn't say, 'Now is that political or social?' He said, 'I feed you.' Because the good news to a hungry person is bread."
“And now in his cradle somewhere under the flag the future illustrious Commander-in-Chief of the American armies is so little burdened with his approaching grandeur and responsibilities as to be giving his whole strategic mind at this moment to trying to find out some way to get his big toe into his mouth…”
Samuel L. Clemens 1866, in Autobiography of Mark Twain Vol. 1 p. 70 University of California Press 2010.
“While women week, as they do now, I’ll fight; while children go hungry, as they do now, I’ll fight; while men go to prison, in and out, in and out, as they do, I’ll fight; while there is one drunkard left, while there is a poor girl upon the streets, while there remains one dark soul without the light of God, I’ll fight – I’ll fight to the very end!”
William Booth, in Sojourners’ Verse and Voice 12/22/2010
1.3 Million more mouths to feed each year. Of all the people who have ever lived on earth, ½ are alive today. We are gnawing the planet bare.
“The proud man can learn humility, bet he will be proud of it.”
