He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?" - Romans 8:32

Prominent Missiologist Identifies Biggest Trend in Global Mission

Ralph Winter told thousands of missionaries that the biggest trend in world mission is the polarization occurring among mission agencies that either focus exclusively on personal salvation or, in contrast, physical needs when they should be doing both.

Christians have the responsibility to not only share the Gospel and help get people into heaven, the renowned missiologist said, but also “getting God into this world” and glorifying God on Earth.

“Evangelism is the highest priority, but it becomes weak and lacks credibility if it does not generate committed believers who will tackle the world’s problem,” Winter maintained in his presentation at the Korea World Mission Conference 2008.

“What is the use of evangelism if it produces Christians who don’t act, who don’t do, who don’t follow God’s will? All they do is sing in church,” he passionately declared. “It is what happens in the world that is at least as important as what happens in church.

He added, “We are getting fancier and fancier at church worship. We know how to do church, [but] we don’t know how to be the church.”

Drawing from history, Winter laid out how confusion in the reformation, in missions today, and among Christians in the 20th century led to the loss of glory for God and disrespect for evangelicals.

Following the reformation, Christians became confused with the role of faith versus works in relation to salvation, Winter explained. The reformation fought against the idea that works alone can get someone into heaven, but then many people began to only focus on faith and ignored the Bible’s teaching of faith-inspired action.

Winter pointed to the Scripture passage James 2:20 where it “plainly” states, “Faith without works is dead.”

Reached vs. Unreached?

Yesterday I posted some numbers from an article that stated that only 10% of missionaries are working among unreached peoples.

Among other things, the author speculates that the reason 90% of missionaries are not among unreached peoples is because of "selfishness" & "zeal for me." He suggests that this can be fixed in the future by two ways:

1) Future missionaries should wait and
pray that God would give them a heart
willing to go anywhere.

2) Mission agencies and churches should
assign these willing new missionaries
to Unreached People Groups.

First, do not nearly all or at least most missionaries start off praying that God would give them a heart willing to go anywhere? What do you do then if that has genuinely been done & the future missionary is convinced of a call to a reached people (keep in mind reached is considered over 2% of the population).

The second idea I like too, as long as it would keep the freedom for missionaries to simply obey God. I think sometimes people know they are called to serve overseas, yet have no idea where to go, & are willing to go anywhere in the world. Encourage them & educate them on the most needy areas for the Gospel.

But to say that the missionaries are selfish & among reached peoples because of "zeal for self" is unfair I think. First of all, what about the millions of Christians who aren't even willing to go overseas. Second, though I have met missionaries on the field who are there on an extended vacation, a lost person is an unreached soul, no matter what category or people group they fall into.

Can we seriously wag our fingers at those in the US who are genuinely trying to reach the lost in San Francisco, New York City, Chicago, or even the poor & decrepit rural towns of the deep South? Do they not need Christ simply because 80% of Americans claim to be Christians?

God has called us to the largest unreached people group in the world - the Japanese - who have about 130 million people & less than 0.5% are Christian. Most people consider South America a place that is reached - yet there are 355 million lost people there, & only 6% of the population is Evangelical.

While I agree with the greatest needs being in the most unreached areas with no missionary presence, it shouldn't be put in comparison to the lost in the other parts of the world, whether they are rich or poor, Asian, African, or American. So many maps show South America as a reached region - so do we forsake the 335 million lost there, who are relatively easier to access than the lost of Iran or North Korea, just because the need in those countries is greater? Obviously not. Pray for laborers for the harvest in your neighborhood & the nations.

Missionaries in the Unreached World...

A Very Small Slice

However you slice it, most researchers agree that just a handful
of all missionaries are serving in Unreached People Groups.

90% of all missionaries serving in well evangelized world
“Those passionate about the unreached are simply asking
Christians to bring resources to bear on the unreached. In spite
of years of talk, over 90% of the world’s cross-cultural missionaries
are still focused on areas that are largely evangelized; less
than one percent are focused on places that call themselves non-
Christian or anti-Christian. Some significant portion of these
mission resources should be brought to those who have nothing.”
Source: Justin Long, “’Unreached’ is Not a Fad” in Momentum,
September/October, 2005, p.7 (INTERNET: ).

10,000 Missionaries amongst Unreached People Groups
“Only an estimated 10,000 of the global foreign mission
force* are working within the 10,000 unreached groups, while
41 times that number of foreign Missionaries continue to work
within people groups already reached. What an imbalance!
Even if you include the foreign missionaries working with
Christians within the entire major cultural blocs, reached and
unreached...it is still a glaring fact that most foreign missionaries
work within peoples which are predominantly Christian.
*The global foreign mission force includes all kinds of Christians
(Protestants, Anglican, Roman Catholic, Orthodox, etc).”

Graphically” in Mission Frontiers, June, 2000.

Missions Worldwide II

  • The number of people who are being presented the plan of salvation every day is now at least 260,274. Pray for today's quarter million plus. May they respond to the call of Christ. Every day now the average number added to the body of Christ worldwide averages 174,000. 3,500 new churches are opening every week worldwide.

  • Over 700 million people in 220 countries have seen the Jesus film, with 41,000,000 indicating a commitment to Jesus Christ and to follow-up Bible studies.

  • After 70 years of oppression in the Soviet Union, Christians number about 100 million - five times the number of the Communist Party at the height of its popularity, and 36% of the population. More than 15,000 public school teachers are now teaching morals from the Bible and the life of Christ in their classes.

  • In Central Asia, a church planted in Uzbekistan just four years ago has grown to 3,000 members and has planted 55 other congregations.

  • Mongolia, which had no church at all as recently as 1991, now has more than 3,000 believers in 17 congregations. And the Mongolians have sent their first missionaries to work with Operation Mobilization in India.

  • In Nepal, the world's only official Hindu country, over 100,000 Hindus have met the Savior in the last two decades.

  • Every month another 15,000 in India are baptized as new believers in Jesus Christ. In India there is 1 pastor for every 7 churches. In Sudan the ratio is one to twelve.

  • In China, there are now about 80,000,000 evangelical believers - growing at a rate five times that of the general population. Over 30,000 conversions a day take place in China alone.

  • In just over two years more than 30,000 Chinese Xiao gave their lives to Christ. It all started with a showing of the 'Jesus' film and summer teams of 20-30 Christians who traveled there to teach English and witness one-on-one to the elite students of the province.
  • In recent years, the best-selling book in Japan has been the Bible. In a government survey, Japanese citizens were asked to name the greatest religious leader in history. Sixty-seven percent replied, "Jesus Christ."

  • In 1900, Korea had no Protestant Church; it was deemed "impossible to penetrate." Today, six new churches open every day in South Korea, and it is site of nine of the world's largest churches - some with more than 800,000 members. Today Korea is 30% Christian with 7,000 churches in Seoul alone. Millions of Buddhists have come to Christ.

  • Puerto Rico now has the highest number of evangelicals per square mile of any country in the world. Of the country's 3.5 million people, one million are evangelicals. They have 7,000 churches, 10,000 pastors, nine Christian TV stations, 13 Christian radio stations, 130 Christian schools and 350 Christian community service organizations. More than 1,000 Puerto Rican young people are now training to go as missionaries to Muslims.

  • More Muslims in Iran have come to Christ since 1980 than in the previous 1000 years combined. Before Khomeini's revolution in 1979 there were about 2,000 Iranian believers. After years of intensified persecution, there are now more than 15,000.

  • There's a seminary in Indonesia where to graduate you have to do all the schoolwork plus start a whole church plus see at least 15 Muslims come to faith in Jesus Christ. In the past 6 years, these students have started more than 600 churches and seen 40,000 Muslims find new life in Christ.

In days where many "run to and fro and knowledge increaseth" change occurs so quickly that each generation gets a chance to trump their folks technologically. Kids who decades ago chortled at their parent's disorientation with electric toasters are now mumbling and fidgeting in the presence of new technology. "Palm pilot? Eh? What's that?" If they haven't yet figured out how to turn the thing on, how are they equipped to think about it biblically?
When pastors and parents are confronted with the latest, they often initially wander through a fog of ethical cluelessness. At these times we get our bearings by remembering the constants. And one happy constant is the comprehensive Lordship of Christ. He was Lord when the wheel was still cutting-edge technology, will remain Lord over every technological innovation till doomsday.
With the breathless pace of change in our world, we cannot call the internet "new." And yet, it is one realm where our technology has outpaced our ethics. So we need to be asking How is Christ Lord over the internet? That question is far too large to tackle in a short column. But one small subset of the internet, the blog, is a good start.

Blogs are gaining attention. World Magazine has begun a weekly "Blog Watch" column, and the Oxford English Dictionary has legitimized the term with a definition. "Blog," is short for "web-log"—a sort of personal online journal where folks think out loud and encourage others to interact. Some are political, others personal, still others wax theological. Many are an amalgamation. Some are written by professionals, but most are written by your average Generation Xer trying to be heard in the midst of the internet cacophony. I am focusing on the latter group.

Blogging is governed by the same biblical principles that govern our speech. This seems obvious, but to read the blogs of many young turks, they either don't get it, or they refuse to bridle their tongues. Blogs can be used for great good, but like any speech, it must be bridled in order to bring grace to those who hear.

Godly blogging begins with the right metaphor. Many young bloggers write as though they are scribbling ugly secrets into their private diaries. Because their blog-thoughts are just them "thinking out loud," they think their grumbling lawful—as if our thought-lives aren't under the Lord's dominion1. The fact that the "diary" metaphor is faulty only multiplies the destruction of sinful speech. Blogging is a form of diarizing, but one written expressly for others to read—or else why the public forum? But blogging is like reading one's diary over NPR. Bloggers should reflect on whether they really want such a public forum. My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment (Jas. 3:1).

If you have a blog, don't take yourself too seriously. Few people—even those "struggling with low self-esteem"—really think more lowly of themselves than they ought to think. The opposite sin, however, is pandemic (Rom. 12:3). Everyone wants to be taken seriously, but beware of losing a sense of proportion. Many bloggers come across as the "lonely poet" 2—misunderstood, outcasts from the world, shuffling miserably along life's highway. Their problem is pride, and their favorite subject is themselves. But the snivelings of some disgruntled teenager do not make for edifying reading. What about joy? And where did Christ get lost in all of this?

Next, though sanctified critique is always lawful, be vigilant against a critical spirit. Of course, you are not writing so others will ignore you. Naturally you want to be read. But it has been said that the cheapest way to gain a following is to criticize. Indeed, this is exactly the MO of false teachers, These are grumblers, malcontents, following their own sinful desires; they are loud-mouthed boasters, showing favoritism to gain an advantage (Jude 16). There is a lot wrong with the world, with the Church, and with the Christians who compose it. So there is no lack of material to rag on. But backbiting and ripping on a blog is worse than merely thinking these things. It is conceiving nasty little thoughts, choosing not to discipline them, and then hauling them to Safeway to vent their tantrums publicly in the dairy section.

When a critical spirit is pointed towards individuals (usually unnamed, though their identity is rarely in doubt), it gets especially ugly. Remember that others bear the image of God. Understanding this is the foundation of courtesy. Because we love God, we honor His image wherever we find it—even if we find it on someone who irritates us. "There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing" (Prov. 12:18). One pastor recommends that one critical comment about someone should be preceded by four positive ones. Try it, and the effort alone will be revealing.

Blogging also has effect on our friendships. For many young reformed folks who go to small churches where there is not a lot of peer fellowship, blogging provides virtual community. They can float their ideas into the void, and have folks anywhere chime in and comment. Naturally, friendships develop. If left strictly as internet friendships, they take on a Gnostic air, with no touch, smell, sight, or sound—just words prancing across the screen. Obviously this will never replace laughter over pizza and Guinness. (or wings & cherry coke says I)

Seeking Good Fortune

During examination times in Japan, prayers for success are seen hanging around on trees at many Shinto shrines. Students are seeking divine assistance to pass their tests and gain admission to the schools of their choice.

In addition a host of new good-luck items that symbolize resistance to failure are being snapped up in stores. A whole collection of goods have emerged that "protect" holders from tumbling into the abyss of defeat.

The most popular of these goods are stationery items, carrying logo's which bring good luck. Stores are jam packed with high-school students about to take their entrance exams. "Failure-free" pencils and erasers are quickly sold out.

One item that is a symbol of tenacity is the Akita apple. In 1991 a devastating typhoon wreaked havoc on the apple crops of Japan. Only the apple orchards in Akita managed to survive with only minor loss. Area farmers commemorate the "apples that refused to fall" with an annual event. Then they also present apples inscribed with the words "prayer for a successful exam" to test-takers. Students will travel far to buy one of these apples, or even make sure of success by having the Akita apple symbol on a pencil or eraser.

Another "failure-free" charm is a train ticket, sold at Miyamoto Musashi Station. The station is named after the legendary swordsman, who never lost a duel in his life. After these tickets went on sale with the phrase "success with exams" printed on them, the station received a flood of orders and inquiries.
(Japanese news sources)

What length students will go to for a failure-free life! Why not pray to God?

Psalm 46:1

This verse does not say that God will help every one that calls on Him for good results with their examinations, especially if they did not study!

Nevertheless, how I wish I could help all the young people of Japan to understand that God is a tested help in times of real trouble.

My Two-Fold Superhero Theory

So why are all these comic book superhero stories gaining such fanfare & acceptance worldwide on the big screen?

I have a two-fold theory that are pretty much opposite of one another.

1. Men are attracted to the idea of power, glory, & fame & put themselves in the imaginary roles of Superman, Spiderman, Batman, etc...with thoughts of grandeur for self.

2. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Imago Dei within man, Christian or not, longs to be involved in the story or a story of redemption. The need for redemption is stamped on our souls, and as you see a man like Batman, flawed, could go over the edge at any second, who yet makes his world a better place, is attractive because it gives a sense that we can overcome our own demons to the betterment of the world around us. Or maybe you're ordinary, dorky, whatever, like a Peter Parker, & if you just had one boost, one major change, you could help redeem the world around you or redeem yourself from your ordinary life - have "purpose" in something greater than just yourself.

Fatherless Children Due to Suicides

The number of fatherless children has increased rapidly in Japan because unemployed men are committing suicide. They are losing their jobs caused by the prolonged economic slump.

Suicides leave 30 children a day in Japan fatherless.

One high school student said that she has driven her father to suicide over money worries after telling him that she wanted to go to university. Her father burned himself to death in the family's garden. She said she would never forget how she and her mother desperately tried in vain to extinguish the flames.

Another high school student is distraughted because his father hanged himself after his company went bankrupt. His father apparently wanted his mother to pay off the family debts by using his life insurance benefits. The insurance was not enough to clear the debts, so his mother still have to pay them off in dribs and drabs. He said he was so ashamed of his father's suicide that he did not want to talk to other people.
(Source: Yomiuri Newspaper)

We want to cry out to all the children in Japan that there is hope for the fatherless.

Josh Hamilton

Wow. I've just watched history watching Josh Hamilton set the all-time record for home runs hit in the first round of the All-Star Home Run Derby.

This is the 2nd time I've watched Hamilton. The first time I watched him it was during an interview after hitting a game winning home run. He humbly gave glory to God. After setting the record tonight he was interviewed. He humbly gave glory to God.

His story is amazing. From this:

"Someone once paid a $2,000 debt to stop a drug dealer from harassing Hamilton. He remembers Hamilton's 24th birthday, May 21, 2005, as the "night from hell."

Hamilton dug ditches and swept model homes for Chadwick's company during his baseball exile. He showed up at an employees party and quickly grabbed a drink. Before the night was over, he ripped the rearview mirror off his truck, punched out the windshield and was twice stopped by police. Following the second incident, he was taken to jail. When he was released, Hamilton says he ran eight miles to an acquaintance's home."

To this:

And on this particular night, a little boy of about 9 or 10, wearing a Reds cap, handed me a pen and something to sign. Nothing unusual there, but as I was writing the boy said, "Josh, you're my savior."

This stopped me. I looked at him and said, "Well, thank you. Do you know who my savior is?"

He thought for a minute. I could see the gears turning. Finally, he smiled and blurted out, "Jesus Christ." He said it like he'd just come up with the answer to a test. "That's exactly right," I said.

Only A Man

A few weeks ago my sister sent me this video to listen to a song she had heard at a Jonny Lang concert in Montgomery, Al. It was a powerful reminder to me about God's powerful saving grace in my own life, & it is beautifully portrayed through this simple song.

My sister wrote: "After early success touring with the likes of BB King, Aerosmith, etc, he had a huge conversion experience and wrote this beautiful song about it. The video is just something someone threw together, but the song is incredible."

She said this about the concert: "He was extremely humble. He gave the rest of his band much spot light time, always turning his back to the crowd to watch them play... and when the concert finished and the crowd cheered for another song, he played a simple & beautiful guitar solo of that song that goes "I love you Lord, & i lift my voice to worship you, oh my soul, rejoice, take joy my king in what you hear. may it be a sweet, sweet sound in your ear."

Seeking God: or Reformed is not Enough

I recently watched an exchange about fasting on a Reformed site. A person requesting advice on the issue was exhorted to simply fast and see what God reveals. I don't believe that's the best advice, but the next comment caught my attention.

"That's crazy talk. We're Reformed. We don't do things. We read about them!"

He was obviously being humorous, but the point was well taken. And the point has implications for both our doctrine and practice. We younger evangelicals who appreciate the Calvinistic formulation of divine sovereignty stand in unprecedented danger. The danger for our generation is to live off of our hero's doctrine and experiences. The resurgence in Calvinistic literature has created a resurgence in reading. And this resurgence has opened to our generation a portal through Church history which is rich in doctrinal and experiential content. I can easily stand with Whitefield as he thunders forth the Gospel to coal miners. I can listen for hours to the intercession of Howell Harris as he pours out his burden before the Lord. I can watch Carey lay down his life for the pagans of India.

But this isn't the end. I can study under Edwards, Hodge, and Owen. I can learn to preach from Spurgeon and Maclaren. The possibilities are only limited by my book allowance!

But this is exactly where danger enters. The danger is to spend the majority of my time living off the doctrine and experiences of other men. Instead of pressing into the Throne of Grace, I meet other men on their way out to hear stories of what it's like inside. Instead of spending hours pouring over Paul's argument in Ephesians, I send these men up on the mountain for me, and sit in awe as they descend to tell of the awesome majesty.

Yes I need Edwards. Yes I need Harris. I need them all. They make wonderful guides, but a poor vine. But don't you long to see the things they saw, and hear the things they heard?

Need Less, Love More

Good News in Japan

Melanie Brents, the IMB Tokyo Prayer Advocate, posted the following today:

Praise the Lord for God's mighty answers to prayer in the homeless ministry here in Tokyo! For just a glimpse at how the Lord is answering your prayers read this short note from one of our summer interns named Adam that he just sent out on Saturday, July 5th:

"I wanted to share with you some more good news that happened this morning after the homeless worship service in the park. Last week sometime, Chi-san the homeless man who became a Christian about 2 months ago shared with one of his friends about Jesus. His friend, Is-san wanted to believe and had some questions to ask the missionary I work with here, Mr. P. So they talked in the park after the service and Is-san trusted Jesus to save him. Amazing! Especially because this is now the second person who came to faith from being told about Jesus through another new Christian. It is joyful to see the Japanese sharing their faith with their fellow countrymen.

But it gets even better. While they were on the bench talking, another man, It-san, nearby overheard them and was watching. He is not homeless, but just happened to be sitting there. Talk about a divine appointment. Anyways, afterward he came over to Mr. P and told him he was watching and listening. then It-san asked Mr. P if he could tell him about Jesus. about half an hour later, It-san was a Christian too. Now we are scheduled to have 4 new believers baptized this Thursday morning. To summarize, God is amazing. Keep praying."

God is at work in Tokyo!! Please keep praying!

Even as I am preparng to send this I just received word that another person prayed with one of our volunteers today at a park to receive Jesus! Praise the Lord!
