The argument goes like this:

The suburbs are full of materialistic people who are living as if they believe God is there to bless them financially while they ignore the plight of the poor and the downtrodden.

If it is true should we not then…

1.) Send missionaries to those enclaves of false religion?

2.) Ask young people to pray about having a heart for the suburbs?

3.) Ask families to pick up and move into the shadow of that blight on the suburban landscape: the strip mall?

4.) Start having conferences about the need for risking our reputations in the suburbs?
