Okay, I am going way out on a limb here because I am tired of the social gospel vs. evangelism debate. And I know the history — the social gospel emerged at the turn of the twentieth century (1900s) because the dominant theology was that the world was getting better and better. Then, along came World War I and blew that theory. Evangelicals divided into fundamentalists and social gospellers, and parted company. Obviously, it was more complex than that, but you get the picture.
