Pastor Foley says that the modern understanding of philanthropy as giving away big money is completely wrong. One of the earliest occurrences of the term “philanthropy” in history comes from the Scripture, in Paul’s letter to Titus. Philanthropy literally means “the love of humanity”–God’s love for humanity, not humanity’s love for each other. The word philanthropy is the best description for the overarching mission of Christ, according to Paul in Titus. And Christ’s philanthropy is what enables us to “do” anything in the Christian life, whether that be confession of sin, reading the Bible, or doing good works.
