The New Social Gospel

I saw this post on Rick Frueh's blog. This seems to be one of the latest trends in churches. Should our gospel be a "social gospel"? If so what is the difference between what we as christians do and what the United Nations does? Our agendas may start to look identical. Correct me if I am wrong but isn't God looking to move through people in a way where it will be unmistakable that it can be explained as ONLY an act of God? Or does God choose to share some of the glory with man?

here is an excerpt...

"One of the dangers we were warned about when we became believers, if you were saved decades ago, was the social gospel. This was defined as meeting the needs of the poor and allowing the gospel to be inherent in the act of kindness itself. This approach reasoned that sinners would see Christ in the good works of Christians as they were fed and clothed and that the sharing of the gospel was not necessary...."
