Dale Partridge joins us as a guest this week to discuss how his organization is working to fulfill the Great Commission on a national and international scale. We also discuss the masculinity of Jesus, and the eschatological hope that motivates our evangelistic efforts.
For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with words of eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.
At ReformCon 2019, Joe Boot explains that without freedom to live as Christians in every area of society, engaging in culture becomes a moot point.
Have we developed a peacetime mentality in a wartime reality? Cory McKenna of the Cross Current discusses the biblical basis for doing evangelism, the need to normalize evangelism as a discipline of Christian life, and evangelism as warfare, taking the gospel into enemy-occupied territory.
The fullness and vigour of Christianity has been in decline in the life of the West, the application of gospel truths often limited to personal evangelism and our personal prayer life. But this is a radically narrow view of the Christian mission. In the biblical narrative we see a vision for the mission of God's people that is nothing less than the faithful worship of God in every area of life and culture – in our laws, educational institutions, politics, and arts, to name just a few. This short book seeks to reintroduce the full scope of the mission, challenging the common assertion that the gospel has nothing to say outside the walls of the church.
