Working Paper: A Christian Perspective on Foreign Aid
This paper develops a general normative framework Christians can employ to evaluate development aid. The basic framework highlights three pillars of Christian charity. First, since all people are created in the Imago Dei, upholding the dignity of the individual is paramount when giving charity. Second, a biblical worldview demands that true charity helps the truly needy, and does so without requiring anything in return. Lastly, Christians must be good stewards of resources and should exhibit wisdom in how those resources are employed. The paper then applies this framework to three areas within development aid: aid targeting, tied aid, and aid conditionality. Finally, the paper considers the specific example of the jubilee and applies its lessons to development aid.View comments →
