Another Quote

Here is another quote from Barefoot Church:

“We are to love our neighbor as we do ourselves. Yet we think more about our Sunday bulletin than we think about the orphan crisis in our world. We believe the church is to be like a city on a hill and a light to the world, but we’re more concerned about the new recessed lighting in our lobbies than we are poverty in our city…As believers, we have got to find a way to see poverty and injustice in the world as wrong and worth fighting against. We need our neglect to be exposed. We need to see the indictment of Scripture. And we need to decide to no longer stand for it” (locations 327-333).

What do you think about this quote? Is it right on target or a little over the top?
