Jim Elliott: “Staying or Going”

Consider the call from the Throne above, Go ye, and from round about, Come over and help us, and even the call from the damned souls below, ‘Send Lazarus to my brothers, that they come not to this place’. Impelled, then, by these voices, I dare not stay home while [the Quichia Indians] perish. So what if the well-fed church in the homeland needs stirring? They have the Scriptures, Moses, and the Prophets, and a whole lot more. Their condemnation is written on their bankbooks and in the dust on their Bible covers. American believers have sold their lives to the service of money (Shadow of the Almighty).
