I've been reading about the Social Gospel movement and it seemed that the movement failed overall because it never reached it's target audience, the working class. Instead, it had a flare of movement in the middle class and then died out. Why is this?

    It is a good idea to add a link from Wikipedia or elsewhere to define terms not in common use, like the "Social Gospel Movement." If you don't know how to do this, click edit to see what I did. – Tom Au Nov 30 '16 at 23:20

    It's still very much around in certain circles. Cynically, the reason it may failed to reach the working class is that the prosperity gospel succeeded instead. – curiousdannii Nov 30 '16 at 23:33
