Discipling and the Protestant Reformation (Part 2 of 2)

I noted in last week’s post that Christianity experienced a seismic paradigm shift when Martin Luther and other reformers essentially zero-based the church’s traditional doctrine of salvation and rebuilt it using only God’s Word—“Sola Scriptura.” Then I stepped back from the details and considered applying that same strategy to discipling ourselves and others. I asked you, “If we zero-base our understanding of what it means to disciple ourselves and others, and then rebuild our understanding…See More

Discipling and the Protestant Reformation

How special it is for us to be alive 500 years after the Protestant Reformation began in Wittenberg! This is an excellent time to thank God for what He did during those years to revolutionize peoples’ understanding of His Word, transform their hearts, and move them from uncertainty and fear through the church to confidence and freedom through Christ. The core outcome of the Reformation was the revolution in scriptural understanding and worship by parishioners through direct access to God and…See More

Discipling & Harvey

Our tragic Hurricane Harvey has a golden lining: thousands of people praying, caring, & sharing their faith while working together to rescue lives and meet needs caused by that crisis.But what do you suppose will happen when the spotlight shifts to the next public crisis? Yes, you're probably right: Emotion, money, and momentum will move mostly to that next media moment. And then the next one after that.As a fellow disciple with you, and in the context of discipling others whom you…See More

"Not yet, Dan. My working DESCRIPTION of agape shows the attitude & behavior of a devoted disciple. See interview on The Leader's SEEcret."

Dan Palmberg commented on Skip Garmo's blog post Applied Agape
"Do you have a working definition of agape?  I'm curious  as it's been a pet topic of mine.  I agree that we need to be wring toward the ends of the great commandment."

Applied Agape

I arrived in the Middle East last weekend to spend 35 class hours serving a group of tomorrow's ministry leaders in this region. It is a periodic privilege and responsibility I've enjoyed for most of the past 20 years. Several past students are present colleagues in ministry. How special is that!At church, some men asked what this group from six countries will focus on. I replied, "The course is called 'Christlike Character in Leadership & Family.' We'll explore the implications and…See More

Good Day,

 How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through
your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have
something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to
express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back
to me on:( mrs.awounyodoris@gmail.com) for the full
details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mrs Awounyo.
