Then No Salvation

"If, then, we are not concerned to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit and nurse the sick, and care for the refugees and prisoners; if we have no social conscience and no compassion for the deprived and the dispossessed; if we are inactive in face of the acute agonies of the world--then clearly there is no love in our hearts for the needy. But if there is no love for the needy, there is no love for Christ who identifies with the needy; if there is no love for Christ, there is no faith in Christ, since faith without love is spurious; and if there is no faith in Christ, there is no salvation." ~ John Stott, Life in Christ, p.92
