“The business interests of the world are… recognizing…the benefit to themselves …with the opening of the world to Christianity.  When a heathen man becomes a child of God and is changed within, the wants his external life and surroundings to correspond; he wants the Christian dress and the Christian home and the Christian plow and all the other things which distinguish Christian civilization from the narrow and degraded life of the heathen.  The merchant knows how the business of the world has been increased by the progress already made by Christianity, and he knows that with the further spread of the Gospel, business will be largely increased.”  So said, Samuel Capen,  president of the Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions in 1910.  In 2015, what part of this message are we in America not getting?
