Since more people perish from Alzheimer's than AIDS, is the Saddleback crowd and their assorted campfollowers going to lament the lack of outreach directed towards those suffering this affliction?
But I guess since the demented elderly aren't into tattoos and rock music, they will be left to rot.
Since AIDS is a highly communicable disease not only because of the HIV virus but because of the drug-resistant infections such as TB that percolate in these convalescents, the individual (not church leadership) should decide to what extent the individual is going to get involved with this kind of missions work.
Even though the Purpose Driven crowd seems to know more than God Himself now, doesn't the Bible teach not everyone is called to the same ministry?
