Missionary Education and Social Questions

by James W.C. Dongall — 1933

In a statement adopted by the International Missionary Council at its meeting at Jerusalem in 1928, we have an indication of the modern missionary attitude toward social questions in the largest sense. After defining the purpose of missions as the presentation of Jesus Christ to men and women the world over, it goes on to say: In this endeavour we realize that man is a unity, and that his spiritual life is indivisibly rooted in all his conditions—physical, mental, and social. We are therefore desirous that the program of missionary work among all peoples may be sufficiently comprehensive to serve the whole man in every aspect of his life and relationships.
