When he was much younger, R.C.Sproul was asked a question by a Methodist minister: "The Church of Jesus Christ. Is it an army, or a hospital?" R.C.'s quick answer was: "The Church is an army!"
In time, R.C. realized that the Church is both an army and a hospital. The Church has been called to soldier forth in the Strong Name of Christ, speaking forth His truth with firmness and determination; The Church also has been commanded to help the hurting, to comfort and enrich and minister to those who are wounded by the hardships of life in a sin-ravaged world.
Standing against what is evil is Biblical (Rom 12:9); but so is Christ-honoring ministry that provides help and hope to those who struggle and grieve (12:15).
"Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love."--1 Cor.16:13-14.
