The Imbalance of American Spirituality

K.P. Yohannan, founder and international director of Gospel for Asia, has some strong and provoking words for American Christianity:

Night after night I stood before audiences, trying my best to communicate the global realities of our planet. But somehow I was not getting through. I could see their unfilled destiny so clearly. Why couldn’t they?

Here were people of great privilege–a nation more able, more affluent, and more free to act on the Great Commission than any other in all of history. Yet my audience did not comprehend this…

Most Christians in North America still conceive of missions in terms of blond-haired, blue-eyed white poepl going to the dark-skinned Two-Thirds World nations. But in reality, the frontline work of missions in Asia has been taken over almost completely by indigenous missionaries…

K.P. Yohannan, in his book Revolution in World Missions

I think Yohannan has some great insight into the spirituality of America. It’s insights like this which have me still believing that America is in desperate need of revival; yet only a few see it.

How can we have so much, yet do so little with it for significance?

I’m convicted by this reality in my life, and wanting to a person who sees revival come to America so that we can be a light to the nations.
