For a long time, western Christianity has sat back and let the government fulfill mandates given to the body of Christ, including the care of the poor and orphans.  And for a lot of Christians on the conservative end of the theological spectrum, “social gospel” was relegated to liberal denominations and was viewed as less than the “real” Gospel.

In the current economic situation in the United States of America, many states are having to cut some of the very programs that reflect those needful ones in our society.  Ray and Steve discuss how this shows the glaring omission of the body of Christ and issue a call to believers to step up to the plate and see how they can meet the needs of a world that is desperately in need of physical help and not just spiritual help.
