The Asian mind is much closer to the Hebrew mind than to the Greek or Western mind. Things… and people… are not easily dissected into independent parts. The unique importance of the spiritual realm is unquestioned in the Reach ministry. But we were created in the image of God; the whole of us, not just our spirits. As the parable of the Good Samaritan illustrates, the Gospel whose essence is love cannot “pass by on the other side of the road” where a brother or sister in Christ lays robbed, beaten and bleeding. Although the needs are obviously beyond Reach, a Third World ministry in particular cannot stop short of a commitment to making men and women whole in Christ.
