Fastened Souls

“Amy Carmichael, the well known missionary to India, received a donation to her work with the stipulation that it be used toward ’soul work.’  She responded, ‘one cannot save and then pitchfork souls into heaven.  There are times I heartily wish we could.  But souls, in India at least, are more or less securely fastened to bodies.  Bodies can’t be left to lie about in the open and as you can’t get the souls out and deal with them separately you have to take them both together.’

Biblical evangelism and benevolence properly practiced is compassion expressed to the whole person.”

Rev. John P. Sartelle
