K.P. Yohannen is the president of Gospel for Asia. He is an Indian man who has given his life to see all the nations come in. Jesus has said clearly, “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached as a testimony to all the nations AND THEN the end will come.” Let’s finish the task he left us!
K.P. in his book, “Revolutions in World Missions”
“85% of all Bibles printed today are in English for the nine percent of the world who read English. 80% of the world’s people have never owned a Bible while Americans have an average of four in every household. America has a full-time Christian leader for every 182 people when the “unreached peoples” have one missionary worker for every 78,000 people.
A friend in Dallas recently pointed out a new church building that cost $74 million. While this thought was still exploding in my mind, he pointed out another $7 million church building going up less than a minute away.
These extravagant buildings are insanity for a Two-Thirds World perspective. The $74 million spent on one building in the U.S. could build more than 7,000 average-sized churches in India. The same $74 million would be enough to guarantee the evangelization of a whole state- or even some of the smaller countries of Asia.
It amazes me though, that these buildings that have been constructed to worship Jesus who said, “The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” (Matthew 18:20)
Let’s provide a pillow for Christ in the Third World today! Why don’t we finish the great commission while we can? All it would take is for us rich Americans to start giving.
