Newbigin: a radically different vision

Friday, June 25, 2021
    [Jesus:] “You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. All men will hate you because of me. But not a hair of your head will perish. By standing firm you will gain life.”
    —Luke 21:16-19 (NIV)
    A preaching of the gospel that calls men and women to accept Jesus as Savior but does not make it clear that discipleship means commitment to a vision of society radically different from that which controls our public life today must be condemned as false.
    ... Lesslie Newbigin (1909-1998), Foolishness to the Greeks: the Gospel and Western culture, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1986, p. 132 (see the book)
    See also Luke 21:16-19; Matt. 10:34-38; Mark 13:12; Luke 9:23-24
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your church seeks refuge in You.
