Why is it regularly unnerving to talk legislative issues in chapel?Slide 3
The issue with being an extension is that you get strolled on from both closures!Slide 4
Problem 1: What do you mean by governmental issues?Slide 5
Politics: Dirty, factional, divisive, exploitative, power-snatching endeavors to make US champs and THEM washouts.Slide 6
Politics: The path gatherings of individuals sort out their lives together.Slide 7
Problem 2: "The gospel isn\'t political… "Slide 8
Our contemporary gospel is essentially INFORMATION ON HOW TO GO TO HEAVEN AFTER YOU DIE with a huge commentary about expanding your own bliss and accomplishment through God. with a little reference about character advancement with a littler commentary about profound involvement with a littler reference about social/worldwide change.Slide 9
self church world A good news of self-upgrade and sin administration in this life and the following…Slide 10
Dallas Willard calls the prevailing comprehension "the good news of wrongdoing administration." The motivation behind the gospel is to answer these inquiries: What do we do about unique sin? How would we go to paradise after we kick the bucket? In a reference shrouded away in the back of "The Divine Conspiracy," he includes ...Slide 11
that the good news of wrongdoing administration produces "vampire Christians" who need Jesus for his blood and little else.Slide 12

Gospel of sparing individual souls from damnation, and forsaking earth to annihilation. Good news of sparing earth* from human sin, starting with us. *Including people Two Gospels:Slide 18
Personal change is the beginning stage however not the end point. We are "honored to be a gift" … Changed to be specialists of progress Healed to mend others Transformed to change the world.Slide 19
A companion\'s statement of purpose: Reaching Christians for Christ, starting with myself. Why might that sort of statement of purpose be required? We should be come to with the good news of Jesus: the good news of the kingdom of God.Slide 20
Remember: Kingdoms (or Empires) were contemporary substances in Jesus\' day!Slide 21
Too few individuals understand the radical way of the message of the Kingdom of God. There are 2 fundamental purposes behind this misconception.Slide 22
The Matthew Problem: Many think "kingdom of God" means paradise (after you bite the dust). Why do Mark and Luke say "Kingdom of God," however Matthew says "Kingdom of Heaven?"Slide 23
As the most Jewish gospel … Matthew takes after the Jewish hesitance about utilizing the name of God specifically. "Paradise" substitutes for God.Slide 24
It is clear that "kingdom of God" (or paradise) does NOT signify "paradise after you kick the bucket," in light of the fact that the Lord\'s supplication shows us to implore …Slide 25
Your the afterlife . Your will be done on earth as it is in paradise.Slide 26
It doesn\'t show us to supplicate … May we go to your kingdom when we kick the bucket . May we as a whole go to paradise where, not at all like earth, your will is finished.Slide 27
2. The John Problem: John utilizes "kingdom" just in parts 3 and 18. Somewhere else, he utilizes the expression "life" - life to the full, or everlasting life. In any case, it is additionally clear that "endless life" doesn\'t just signify "life in paradise after you kick the bucket," in opposition to well known assessment.Slide 28
Eternal life is characterized by Jesus plainly in John 17:3 - Now this is everlasting life: that they may know you, the main genuine God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.Slide 29
To know signifies "to live in an intelligent relationship." If we know each other, we communicate with each other in a relationship.Slide 30
The expression "unceasing" truly signifies "of the ages." ( zoein aionian ) It implies life over the present age and administration, "life on a higher plane," life over the unremarkable, life that is a piece of what God is doing crosswise over time. Genuine, that life doesn\'t end at physical demise - yet neither does it start there!Slide 31
So … what is the kingdom of God? It is an existence lived in a system of intelligent connections … With God as King With different residents, animals With the region or area With different kingdomsSlide 32
It is a matter BOTH of individual change AND of social change. Jesus says, The time has come! The kingdom of God has drawing close! Apologize and trust the uplifting news!Slide 33
The good news of wrongdoing administration and earth-relinquishment produces institutional adherents (Baptists, Methodists, Pentecostals, Catholics, and so forth.) who stick to an arrangement of conviction and a structure of religion - at the end of the day bolster business as usual. The good news of the kingdom must create followers who take in a radical better approach forever and partake in the change of the world.Slide 34
Personal change … until Christ is framed in you. (Galatians 4:19)Slide 35
Global change … the kingdom of this world has turned into the kingdom of our Lord... (Disclosure 11:15)Slide 36
So individual change is not the end point. We are "honored to be a gift" … Changed to be operators of progress Healed to mend others Transformed to change the world.Slide 37
Transformed supporters change their reality: You are the salt of the earth. In any case, if the salt loses its saltiness, in what capacity would it be able to be made salty once more? It is no more useful for anything, but to be tossed out and stomped all over.Slide 38
You are the light of the world. A city on a slope can\'t be covered up. Neither do individuals light a light and put it under a dish. Rather, they put it on its stand and it offers light to everybody in the house. Similarly, let your light sparkle before others, that they may see your great deeds and celebrate your Father who is in paradise.Slide 39
Salt of the earth … Light of the world … Light to everybody … Jesus is calling his adherents to re-possess the first calling of Abraham … a light to all countries … drawing out the entire world\'s potential for excellence and productivity.Slide 40
Salt of the earth … Light of the world … Light to everybody … This is characteristically and unavoidably a political calling.Slide 41

A group of otherworldly development. Mission: Train individuals to be specialists of the kingdom of God who live in the method for Jesus and convey mending and change to the world (tikkun olam). What is the congregation in connection to these two accounts?Slide 43
PROBLEM 3: WE WANT TO BE BOTH PROPHETIC AND PASTORAL (PRIESTLY) - WE WANT TO FEED THE FLOCK WITHOUT DIVIDING AND SCATTERING IT … (and without abusing charge absolved status!)Slide 44
DOING SO REQUIRES US TO BE WISE AS SERPENTS AND INNOCENT AS DOVES …Slide 45
To those under the law I got to resemble one under the law … in order to win those under the law. To those not having the law I got to resemble one not having the law … to win those not having the law. To the frail I got to be feeble, to win the powerless. I have turned into all things to all individuals so that by all conceivable means I may spare a few. I do this for the gospel… . (1 Corinthians 9:19-23)Slide 46
For Christ\'s affection forces us, since we are persuaded that one kicked the bucket for all, and in this manner all passed on. What\'s more, he kicked the bucket for all, that the individuals who live ought to no more live for themselves however for him who passed on for them and was raised once more. So starting now and into the foreseeable future we respect nobody from a common perspective… . This is from God, who accommodated us to himself and gave us the service of compromise: that God was accommodating the world to himself in Christ, not including men\'s transgressions against them. What\'s more, he has focused on us the message of compromise. We are thusly Christ\'s represetatives, as if God were making his allure through us. (2 Corinthians 5:14-21)Slide 47
COMPLEXIFY DUALISMS AND BIPOLARTIES … There aren\'t only 2! Mainstream Left versus Religious Right Secular Left versus Common Right Religious Right versus Religious Left Secular Right versus Common Left Secular Right versus Religious Left … and so on. At that point include "Corporatist versus Populist," "Patriot versus Globalist," "Present day versus Postmodern," "Frontier versus Post-pioneer," or "Globalist versus Localist," and so forth., to past bipolarities.Slide 48
