The Danger of Focusing Only on Unreached People Groups Part 3

Our token missionary (or a model, not the model, but an excellent model) Let’s pause and take a moment to consider the church’s token missionary for all time, namely Paul, an apostle of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ. He killed many of the first Christians and wrote...

The Danger of Focusing Only on Unreached People Groups Part 2

A perennial question in missions is how much investment should be made to bring the gospel to places it’s already been. It’s been a while since the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo and not so long since the summer games of Athens 2004, but what remains of them is...

When C4 is not Biblical in Many Respects

On April 30, 2011, I received an e-mail asking me about my conviction that C4 alters the Gospel message. Generally, C4 (so-called in the C1-C6 Spectrum) has been the boundary that many evangelicals feel is as accommodating to Islamic theology and culture as one should...

Allah: The god of Islam

Allah: The god of Islam

At the moment a Muslim is born and again on his death bed, seven Arabic words are whispered into his ears: “La ilaha ilia Allah, Muhammad rasul Allah” which translates, “(There is) no god except Allah; Muhammad (is) Allah’s prophet.” This creed, which is the focal...

Psst…”Did you hear what Jesus did?”

Gossip as a means of mission When we think of the word 'gossip' we often think in negative terms of someone who has nothing better to do than to talk behind the backs of other people. A quick word study in the New Testament would largely confirm these sentiments with...
