Over the past couple of weeks, I have taught on the relationship of the gospel and the poor which apparently is a hot topic in some evangelical circles. I initially intended this to be a short addendum to the 20-week teaching on “The Gospel Centered Life” from last year, but when I asked our adult members if any of them had done an in-depth study on what the Bible says about the poor, no one raised their hands. Well, that was a month ago, and since then there has been dozens and dozens of hands raised with questions abounding.
While I have not completed our study on this subject, I thought I’d post some blogposts on this subject from our church blog. Perhaps some of this may be of some interest to you.
