What is the Mission of the Church? - Missional? Social Justice?
October 19, 2011
What is the church’s responsibility? Relationships are too messy! The Preaching of the Bible is too offensive, man! Hey, why don't we just do a soup kitchen and call it done. What is the Christian’s responsibility in respect to the culture, in respect to addressing the affects of sin on a city? Do we become Marxists, and seek more redistribution of the wealth at the hands of the state? Is the church responsible for adopting the orphan, or is that the responsibility of the family sphere? Confusion reigns in these areas. Christians are constantly tossed about some sort of a jurisdictional free-for-all, because the Word of God is seldom seen as an “ethical standard” for Christians anymore. On this segment of Generations, we attempt to work out the mission of the church in an interview with Greg Gilbert, coauthor of the book, “What is the Mission of the Church?”
