The world is clearly changing at a dizzying pace. Everything we know about the world of the 20th Century has changed, is changing, or soon will change. If you do not believe this then watch this documentary video presentation, titled "Did You Know?" If you already believe the world is changing rapidly then watch this anyway. It will only convince you all the more that your sense of things is correct. When I watch something like this I have to ask: “How will we (Christians) prepare the church, our mission organizations, seminaries and other ministries for THIS new world?” If we fail to plan we should plan to fail. Only those who think deeply about the context of Christ's mission will do anything bold and filled with faith to respond to this new world.

“Only those who think deeply about the context of Christ’s mission will do anything bold and filled with faith to respond to this new world”.
Yes, and as a historian of the Church, you know that it is rare when the majority of church members
“think” in this way and thus do nothing about seizing the day for Christ. My last two blogs are along this exact line re. the SBC. Today I was reviewing the ministry of Alan Redpath (Moody-1955-62), and suddenly realized there were at least two very faithful and powerful prophets of God speaking into the evangelical mecca of Chicago-Redpath and Tozer. I’m pretty sure they were all but ignored by the majority. Both preached from hearts aflame for revival and reformation of the churches. Unless God intervenes, I’m afraid that history will repeat itself.
