Martin Luther King, Conformity, and the “Age of Jumboism”

Image
Written by: Thomas S. KiddIn late 1954, Martin Luther King had just been installed as the pastor at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. He preached a sermon on Romans 12:2: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (KJV) In the sermon, he addressed the spirit of conformity that marked the 1950s, but his words seem immediately relevant to the church today.Martin Luther King, Jr., Library of Congress, Public Domain. Instead of making history we are made by history. The philosopher Nietzche once said that every man is a hammer or an anvil, that is to say every man either molds society or is molded by society. Who can doubt that most men today are anvils, continually being molded by the patterns of the majority?Along with this has grown a deep worship of bigness. Especially in this country many people are impressed by nothing that is not big – big …

Working Together: How a Shared Gospel Vision Leads to Healthy Partnership in Missions

You may not think of Germany as an unreached area of the world, but the reality is one out of every thousand people in my city of Frankfurt attend a gospel-teaching church. There is an urgent need for the gospel here. But when my team and I began trying to work with existing churches in Frankfurt to plant new churches, we quickly learned that such an endeavor would require partnership.Who Do You Think You Are?I imagine that if I had been approached by a missionary church planter from Germany back when I was a pastor in Memphis, Tennessee—especially one who was offering to train me to reach those in my home community—I would’ve probably viewed it as a sign of arrogance. After all, I was a native. I had biblical training. I poured blood, sweat, and tears into my work as a pastor. What could I possibly gain from a foreigner who struggled to speak English?A win-win situation is achieved when groups of believers realize that they need one another—not only for their own benefit but also to …

The Perils Facing the Evangelical Church

The distinctions of the seven churches of Revelation are set forth clearly in that book. They manifest different greatnesses and frailties, but they all faced perils. Each confronted the dangers that assaulted the church in the first century. They faced hazards of varying proportions, but there was a common threat to the health of the New Testament church from many sides. Those dangers manifested in the first century are repeated in every age of the church. They certainly loom large at our time in the early years of the twenty-first century.When we consider the predicament that the evangelical church of the twenty-first century faces in America, the first thing we need to understand is the very designation “evangelical church” is itself a redundancy. If a church is not evangelical, it is not an authentic church. The redundancy is similar to the language that we hear by which people are described as “born-again Christians.” If a person is born again of the Spirit of God, that person is…

Faithful Ministry Will Bear Fruit

For 9 1/2 years (2000-2009) this young man labored to bring about biblical faithfulness. He was wounded and weary from battle. But the Holy Spirit gave him power and he fought for Jesus. The congregation continued to decline in numbers. But the seeds of righteousness and repentance were sown. I think he left feeling a little defeated. Today, we enjoyed being musically led in worship by two young African-American men. One has come about 7-8 times and the other 2 times. The congregation loves these guys and there is a push to make them our permanent music team.In 2000 a young seminary graduate named Matt Schilling became pastor of Grenada Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) in Mississippi (now Grace PCA). At the time the majority of the Session was determined to keep the congregation “lily white” (their words). Racist jokes were commonplace. The previous pastor was known for making racist slurs from the pulpit. Poor white people were called “white trash” to their faces and made to feel…

“God Made Me for China” — Eric Liddell Beyond Olympic Glory

He was one of the most famous athletes of modern times and the Olympic glory of Scotland. He was also a Christian who refused to compete on Sunday and refused to compromise. Unquestionably, Eric Liddell was made to run. And yet, more than anything else, Eric Liddell believed that “God made me for China.”The medal ceremony at the Olympics is a moment of rare pomp and ceremony in this informal age. The ceremonies represent both climax and catharsis, with athletes awarded the coveted gold, silver, and bronze medals placed around their necks.It was not always so.When Eric Liddell, “the Flying Scot,” won the 400 meter race and the gold medal at the 1924 games in Paris, there was no awards ceremony. Back then, the medals were engraved after the games and mailed in a simple package to the victors. But, even without the medal ceremony, there was glory. Liddell instantly became a hero to the entire United Kingdom and was recognized as one of the greatest athletes of his age.Americans of my gen…

The Quest for Biblical Worship (Part 1)

Given that the Regulative Principle of Worship (RPW) limits the elements of worship to those God has set out in Scripture, we should expect a significant degree of liturgical uniformity. The six, basic elements (i.e. the reading and preaching Scripture, prayer, singing praises, administering the sacraments, and lawful oaths) should be found in all of our services. Other things (i.e. unauthorized rituals, ceremonies, programs, gestures and postures) should not.Which is more likely today, liturgical sameness or liturgical strangeness? Which is more damaging to the integrity of Protestant denominations? Are we suffocating from liturgical uniformity–encountering the same old predictable things in the Reformed churches we attend? Or, are we unsettled by the unusual liturgical activity that we encounter in our sister churches and regional assemblies? Have we become bored with routine or shaken by what has become unrecognizable? Isn’t there a biblical principle that regulates how we worship 

Jesus Shrugged

The utility and morality of orthodox Christian social beliefs can be debated. But according to Christian teaching, it is licit, perhaps even mandatory, to withdraw and walk away—“shake the dust off your feet”—rather than violate one’s conscience or become corrupted by the world.We’ve all heard of the idea of a general worker’s strike. In her tome Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand posed a provocative question. What if, in response to an increasingly overbearing regulatory state, the entrepreneurs of America decided to go on strike?The resulting 1000 pages, if you can get through them, constitute one of the most creative, if overwrought, dystopias ever envisioned. Society’s producers quietly disappear, enclosed in their own hidden capitalist utopia, while innovation grinds to a halt, intellectual property languishes, and overconfident, arrogant bureaucrats run world-class factories into the ground. When all’s said and done, all that was required to liberate America’s unappreciated geniuses and c…

Progressivism’s Peak Lunacy

We have to ask the questions. And then we have to get to the place where we help people see that the things our culture claims to value most – human rights and tolerance and diversity – are insupportable without a coherent foundation. These cultural values would not exist without Christianity: they did not originate in Rome or Athens or Babylon but in Jerusalem; and without Christianity as the foundation there is no way they can endure.So the week before last it was all, “Gender is meaningless – it mustn’t even be mentioned; it is the distinction that knows no name,” as London Underground instructed staff not to use the phrase ladies and gentlemen. But last week it was all, “Gender is everything – it must be relentlessly focussed on,” as the fact that there are more highly paid men at the BBC than women has caused sputtering outrage. The internal incoherence of the liberal project should be blindingly obvious. If gender really is irrelevant then whether broadcasters are male or female …

Classic Theism: Worshiping the Immutable God

Today’s obsession with being relevant and being all things to all people isn’t so much the fruit of pragmatism (though it is that too) but more so the outcome of forgetting God.  We’ve forgotten the Immutable, Impassable, God only wise and so we’ve become convinced that God is OK with our neat tricks and new styles of worship and evangelism. “God didn’t say we couldn’t use strange fire as we approach Him in worship, so…”Beware the church that is always trying to make Christianity cool again; far more often than not, their hearts are preoccupied with what the world wants than what God wants. Of course it could be argued that Christianity has never been cool. That’s fine. St. John’s Revelation of Jesus Christ provides us with sufficient motivation to overcome the antagonism and persecution that comes with being the uncool kids of history. But many are tired of not being invited to the cool kids table and so the sufficiency of Scripture (which tells us how we’re to live and operate as th…

Can Technology Delete Death?

In an attempt to escape this fallen world, what if we instead find ourselves eternally stuck inside it? Since the time of Prometheus, the Greek demigod, or more recent stories of people stuck in a conscious coma, aware of everything around them but unable to move their mouths or bodies, the inability to die can become the ultimate trap, the most haunting horror.Few prophets of the technological revolution are more respected than Ray Kurzweil, and his answer is Yes. One day, soon enough, science will deliver us from physical death, from the awful reality of mortality, and from the snubbing out of our conscious existence on earth.Human evolution now demands such steps, Kurzweil says. “Our bodies are governed by obsolete genetic programs that evolved in a bygone era, so we need to overcome our genetic heritage” (The Singularity, 371). The idea of transhumanism is that we can evade our biological bodies — like a man fleeing out the top hatch of a damaged submarine, or maybe more like a th…

Hello,If the current reading is the chapter before the last in a book of the Bible, i.e., Ephesians, and you mark the reading as done, the following anomalies occur in the last reading of each chapter:Two column mode is disabled.

Christian Freedom and the Law of God

The relationship between freedom and law is an intricate one. It is far too easy to have a message on Christian freedom degenerate into one in which Christians are taught they are free to do whatever they want: “no rules equals freedom.” On the other hand, it is far too easy to hear messages on the law of God sound like believers are bound to obey the law in slavish fear: “your obedience earns you a place in this house.” Mistakes on liberty and law often ride tandem.The alliance of Christian liberty and God’s law is one far too elaborate to summarize in a short post. But, I commend one idea to get the ball rolling: When it comes to Christian freedom and the law, believers are both free from law and free unto law. Getting the right senses of each makes all the difference.Christian Freedom From the LawPaul often speaks of the shortcomings and disturbing functions of the law. He reiterates again and again that the law cannot be kept, and thus no one will be justified by works of the law,…

Our Weakness Reveals His Worth

Image
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)God’s design for suffering is that it magnifies Christ’s worth and power. This is grace, because the greatest joy of Christians is to see Christ magnified in our lives.When Paul was told by the Lord Jesus that his “thorn in the flesh” would not be taken away, he supported Paul’s faith by explaining why. The Lord said, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9). God ordains that Paul be weak so that Christ might be seen as strong on Paul’s behalf.If we feel and look self-sufficient, we will get the glory, not Christ. So, Christ chooses the weak things of the world “so that no human being might boast in the presence of God” (1 Corinthians 1:29). And sometimes he makes seemingly strong people weaker, so that the divine power will be the more evident.We know that Paul experienced this as grace because he rejoiced in it: “Therefore I will boas…
