Korean Megachurches: Growing in Justice?
See Bill Pannell’s provocative comment on my post Kim Dae Jung’s Witness (Bill served as Dean of the Chapel at Fuller Seminary from 1992 to 1998, and as director of the African-American Studies Program):
Praise the Lord for Kim Dae Jung’s courageous witness in Korea. I have often wondered what would have happened to issues of justice, the behavior of police and militia etc. if the famed mega-churches of South Korea had been mobilized to combat the evils of injustice. Our church growth leaders stateside paraded to these churches to learn how to grow churches. I doubt they went there to learn from these same churches how to do justice. So then, how biblical have they really been?
