Are other religions outpacing Christianity in the arena of social justice? They certainly didn’t during the 2004 tsunami in Indonesia, according to Dr. Gerry Breshears, Professor of Theology at Western Seminary and Co-author with Mark Driscoll of several popular books on doctrine and the church. “Largely, the people who came and stayed and made a difference, came in the name of Jesus. And they weren’t particularly doing evangelism.” We should be careful never to understate the work of other religions (and non-religious) people, but Christianity is definitely one of, if not the most justice-oriented religions in the world.
