On June 10-12, DNA co-founder Bob Moffitt addressed a national cell church conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  Bob writes:

“I led a seven-session workshop on wholistic ministry. The focus of the workshop was on the theology and practice of mobilizing every member of the participating church’s cell groups for incarnational living. The conference organizers printed 1,000 copies of If Jesus Were Mayor so that every conference participant would have a copy.

“There were consistently 70-80 participants in the seven sessions. I have since heard from the organizers that the attendees evaluated the workshop very highly. My prayer now is that these leaders will return to their respective small groups and begin to implement what they learned.

“A highlight for me on this assignment was hosting an Indian evangelist named Johnson. He had read my book, If Jesus Were Mayor, and wanted to be mentored to disciple his people in the concepts he had read there. I invited him to join me for this conference to learn more and to get personally acquainted.  We roomed together and had wonderful times of fellowship.  He has a passion for reaching India. His strategy has been crusades for thousands of people. He told me that many who attend these crusades have raised their hands indicating a desire to believe in Jesus, but he has observed that the long-term fruit of these events is what he describes as “very small.” He told me that he had been able to find only about 1% of those who had indicated a desire to follow Jesus remaining faithful. He is becoming increasingly convinced that the crusade method of evangelism – by itself – is not effective in reaching his people with the transforming message of the Gospel. After reading my book he felt that the strategy of discipling believers to live out the Gospel in all aspects of their lives would be a more effective way to advance the Kingdom. I encouraged him to return to India, meet and learn from some of our team in that area of the world, and then to implement what he was beginning to learn.  I am looking forward to walking further with this brother.”

You make some good points. I guess it depends on your standpoint. – If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. – Benjamin Franklin 1706 – 1790

Famed Anti-Christian Dawkins Now Celebrating Christian Culture

Recently, the famed atheist intellectual Richard Dawkins showed his cards when he called himself a cultural Christian. It’s fascinating to see someone as anti-Christian as Dawkins appreciating the culture that was built on Christian values. But can the culture he enjoys in the West actually be sustained within a secular and atheistic worldview? Further, for Christians who see the value of biblical principles and want to have an influence in society, will we rightly be considered, “Christian Nationalists?”

The Consequences of Killing God with John Stonestreet

The foundation of our society has shifted beneath our feet. Where there was once a firm base rooted in the Bible, we now find our culture in a moral freefall. Special guest John Stonestreet from the Colson Center reveals how subtle shifts have radically eroded people’s ability to find truth, identity, justice, and meaning. Believers have a responsibility to shape society in such a way that people know truth and can find meaning and justice …
