New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 10, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas 6 Q HeraldZeHung Q Friday January Church To talk with Managing Editor Micah Boyd about Church Life call 6259144 ext 220 Church A hand of mercy and a challenge for Im gearing up for 1997 by reading Eugene Petersons New Testament interpretation The If youre not a Bible reader this is the Bible for you Not only is it written in language you can understand that is clear and true to course in its interpretation you can also purchase it at Sams Warehouse Now thats a plus for sure Petersons pace is quick and brisk like a blue norther coming in at high noon The action throughout the gospel of Matthew has captured me even after 20plus years of reading and rereading the account of the reformed tax collector Listen to his interpretation of Jesus words to the church folks of His day in Matthew Who needs a doctor the healthy or the sick Go figure out what this Scripture means Im after mercy not Im here to invite outsiders not coddle These arc the words of Jesus to a group of very religious people who questioned the kind of folks He was hanging with In other words Jesus crowd was less than respectable not the kind of people that you would want your kids to bring home And for some not the kind of folks you would want to sit Dennis Gallaher next to on Sunday morning i Jesus sacrificed respectability for opportunity And He demonstrated what was to be a benchmark for all to follow Our job description as the Church is to be an open door to those who had been locked out of respectable society We are the place for those who have no other place to go Jesus made sure there would be little left to interpretation when it came to the outcast In fact He made it so clear His most famous disciple Paul said that the Gospel demands the Christian become all things to all men so as to win the lost Sounds like our idea of the world fitting into church tradition gets stepped on by the Gospel it supposedly promotes Tough words So were His Im here to invite outsiders Not coddle Tough talk from a gentle Master The truth is that the Western Church that lives without persecution has been very ineffective in evangelism for many years Church growth has statistically been the moving of people from one church to another instead of making new disciples Why Because we are very good at telling people what a Christian looks like and very poor at teaching and challenging people to do it While the lost are crying out for someone to tell them how to have happy marriages and families the Church spends her time designing yet another program that coddles the insiders with more feelgood religion And the result Compared to Islam now in first place with more than one billion adherents thats western style feelgood religion is losing serious territory in the war for souls In England today there are now more Muslims than Methodists There are even more Muslims than there are Evangelical Christians Ten years ago there were an estimated 150 mosques in England today there are more than There are now more than 500 Islamic centers in the and more Muslims than Espiscopalians or Presbyterians By the turn of the century Islam may well surpass Judaism as Americas largest minority religion Passionless Protestantism is dying for lack of a fire in her soul And one more program wont change a thing Hot blooded evangelism is what is needed Im after mercy not Im here to invite Let me make a proposition to you What if you and I make a serious attempt to obey Jesus words in 1997 Developing a heart of mercy for sinsick society will be the only thing that extends the hand of invitation to the outsider That means mercy instead of judgment the very thing that brought you to Christ And its interesting isnt Thip very thing that brought you to Chri is the very thing that godless religi wants you to forget Dennis Gallaher is pastor ofthl Freedom Fellowship Church in Baker Bible collection one of
