Most of us grew up in Christian circles where agreement was a requirement for unity and community. But, once we changed our minds about what we believed we realized that this "community" was an illusion and our "unity" wasn't real. So, is there another way to experience community and unity outside of agreement? Yes! Listen as we explore new and better ways to experience unity and community without agreement. *Connect with Keith on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Visit the blog at keithgiles.com

66 - C. R. Wiley on Contextualizing to a Culture of Death

Full Proof Theology

Play Episode Listen Later Oct 17, 2022 43:53


In this interview with Chris Wiley, we explore the strategy of contextualization. Church planters and Christians in the 20th and 21st centuries have been thinking about contextualization and attempting to use it as a means to reach people with the gospel. It is the normative approach to being “missional” in the American context. While the church has always been a people of mission, carrying God's gospel message to the ends of the earth, in the mid-20th century many Christian thinkers began to reconsider older approaches to Christian mission. Wiley casts doubt on the usefulness and fruitfulness of this endeavor particularly as it relates to a post-Christian culture of death. He ties contextualization to ideological movements in the 19th Century. Bio from crwiley.com: “C. R. Wiley's childhood was like something out of a story by Roald Dahl.It was full of vacancies. He was a ward of the state for a time. (Imagine living at the DMV and you have a sense of what that was like.) And he hated the 8th grade so much that he took it twice.Fortunately his imagination filled in what life left out. He drew a lot and actually got pretty good at it.Besides writing for magazines and publishing books he has been a pastor (still is!), a college professor, a commercial real estate investor, a landlord (still that, too!), and a building contractor.He has been happily married for over 30 years and he has three grown children. He resides in the state of Washington.He has written for Touchstone Magazine, Modern Reformation, Sacred Architecture, The Imaginative Conservative, Front Porch Republic, National Review Online, and First Things, among others. His most recent book is, In the House of Tom Bombadil (2021). He is also the author of, The Household and the War for the Cosmos published by Canon Press (2019). His short fiction has appeared in The Mythic Circle (published by the Mythopoeic Society) and elsewhere, and the first book in his young adult fantasy series, The Purloined Boy was published by Canonball Books (2017). He is a board member of the Academy of Philosophy and Letters, as well as New Saint Andrews College.”Patreon - https://www.patreon.com/chasedavishttps://crwiley.com/Theology Pugcast - https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-theology-pugcast/id1452933071?ign-mpt=uo%3D4&mt=2“In the House of Tom Bombadil” - https://amzn.to/3S7o95JSupport the showSign up for the Patreon - https://www.patreon.com/chasedavisFollow Full Proof Theology on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/fullprooftheology/Follow Full Proof Theology on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/fullprooftheology/

TITLE: What is the Purpose of the Church? TEXT: Acts 2:42-47 The Purpose of the Church is… 1 – THE EXALTATION OF GOD – Various Scriptures Our Mission – “To glorify God through the fulfillment of the Great Commission in the Spirit of the Great Commandment.” Isaiah 43:7 – [bring] everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.” The Westminster Catechism “What is the chief end of man?” ANSWER: “Man's chief end is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.” Ephesians 1:3-6 – “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace…” Ephesians 3:20-21 – “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” 2 – THE EDIFICATION OF THE SAINTS – V.42-47a The assembly of the saints grow & are edified through: 2A. Right Preaching – V.42a John Stott – “The Church depends on the truth for its existence; the truth depends on the Church for its defense and proclamation.” 1 Timothy 3:15 – “The church of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth.” 2 Timothy 4:1-2 – “I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.” 2B. Intimate Fellowship– V.42b,44 2C. Fervent Prayer– V.42c 2D. Generous Mercy – V.43-45 ​​Matthew 25:31-40 - “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.' Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?' And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'” 2D. Authentic Worship – V.47a 3 – THE EVANGELIZATION OF THE WORLD – V.47b Matthew 28:18-20 –”And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Romans 10:14-17 – “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!' But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?” So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” Ephesians 3:10 – “...so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.”

TITLE: Who Leads the Church? TEXT: 1 Timothy 3:1-7 Paul Trip – “For every celebrity Pastor exiting the ministry in the spotlight, there are many more lesser-known pastors leaving in the shadows… for every public falling, there are hundreds of unknown pastors who have lapsed, have left both their leadership and their church in crisis, or are spiritual shells of the pastors they once were. I am convinced from conversation after conversation with pastors and their leadership that we have a leadership crisis…The church is experiencing a leadership crisis.” Leadership in the church: 1 – GOOD & FROM GOD - V.1 Dave Harvey – “We live in an age of exaggerated autonomy and independence. People want to be independent from absolutes, and their skeptical about anyone who inhabits a position of authority. Cynicism breeds suspicion toward all who bear the responsibility to lead ….The trouble with such cynical thinking is that authority is hardwired into the creation order. God made people to be kings and queens over creation. He mandated that they rule the world(Genesis 1:28). Jesus is revealed to us in Scripture as the Son of God who empties himself of his preincarnate glory and prerogatives and submits to his Father(John 5:19; 6:38; 17:18; 22-26, 1 Corinthians 11:3; Philippians 2:5-11), and we can assume that since we'll be gathering around God's throne in heaven, redeemed people will forever live within the borders of authority(Revelation 4). The implications are clear. Leadership is not a consequence of the fall but rather God's good design for human flourishing in a well-ordered world.” 2 – ELDER/PASTOR/OVERSEER - V.2-7, VARIOUS TEXTS Tim Challies - “We cannot overemphasize the primacy of character. A great many of the problems we see in the local and global church today are caused by the failure to heed this simple principle. So many Christians could be spared so much trauma if only their churches would refuse to put a man in leadership who is lacking such character. So many congregations would be spared so much pain if only they would remove men who prove they don't have the kind of character God demands. This failure to heed what God makes plain is a terrible blight upon the Christian church.” D.A Carson – “The criteria mentioned are demanded of all Christians everywhere. Which is another way of saying, elders are first of all to be exemplars of the Christian graces that are presupposed as mandated on all Christians.” Richard Baxter – “Take heed, therefore, brethren, for the enemy has a special eye upon you. You shall have his most subtle insinuations, and incessant solicitations, and violent assaults. As wise and learned as you are, take heed to yourselves lest he overwit you. The devil is a greater scholar than you, and a nimbler disputant; he can transform himself into an ‘angel of light' to deceive (2Co 11:14). He will get within you and trip up your heels before you are aware; he will play the juggler with you undiscerned, and cheat you of your faith or innocence, and you shall not know that you have lost it—no, he will make you believe it is multiplied or increased when it is lost.” What's the job of Elders/Pastors/Overseers? 2A. SHEPHERD THE FLOCK – 1 PETER 5:1-2 1 Peter 5:1-2 - So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: shepherd the flock of God that is among you…” 2B. TEACH THE WORD – TITUS 1:9 Titus 1:9 - “He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it.” 2C. KEEP CLOSE WATCH – ACTS 20:28 Acts 20:28 - “Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood.”

TITLE: Who Belongs to the Church? TEXT: Acts 2:41-47 Answering 2 Crucial Questions: 1 – WHO BELONGS TO THE CHURCH? – V.41 Acts 2: 42-47 – “And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” CH Spurgeon – “I believe that one reason why the church of God at this present time has so little influence over the world is because the world has so much influence over the church. Put your finger on any prosperous page in the Church's history, and I will find a little marginal note reading thus: “In this age men could readily see where the church began and where the world ended.' Never were there good times when the church and the world were joined in marriage with one another. The more the Church is distinct from the world in her acts and in her maxims, the more true is her testimony for Christ, and the more potent is her witness against sin.” 2 – WHY MEMBERSHIP IN THE CHURCH? – V.41b-42 WHY MEMBERSHIP? Because of the biblical pattern: SALVATION → BAPTISM → MEMBERSHIP So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand. More specifically…why the need for formal membership? Because… 2A. It's how we live out the biblical images & the one another's 2B. It's how we obey the command to submit to our leaders - Hebrews 13:17 2C. It's how leaders can obey the command to lead & care – Acts 20:28 2D. It's how we exercise church discipline when there is unrepentant sin - 1 Corinthians 5:1-2, 2 Thessalonians 3:6-15 ​​1 Corinthians 5:1-2, 9-11 - It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that is not tolerated even among pagans, for a man has his father's wife. And you are arrogant! Ought you not rather to mourn? Let him who has done this be removed from among you….I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— not at all meaning the sexually immoral of this world, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one. 2 Thessalonians 3:6,11-15 - Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from any brother who is walking in idleness and not in accord with the tradition that you received from us….For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living. As for you, brothers, do not grow weary in doing good. If anyone does not obey what we say in this letter, take note of that person, and have nothing to do with him, that he may be ashamed. Do not regard him as an enemy, but warn him as a brother.

TITLE: What is the Church? TEXT: Matthew 16:18, Various Texts John Hammet – “In designating themselves ekklesia, the early Christians were taking a word already in use by Greek speaking Jews to refer to the people of God in the Old Testament, and thus making a claim to some degree of historical connection to that earlier people; they were also using a word that reinforced the idea that the church is made up of those summoned or called by God.” THE CHURCH IS … The assembly of the called-out people of God” THE CHURCH: The assembly of the called out people of God are: 1 – THE FAMILY OF GOD John Hammet - “When the references to the church as a household, the references to God as the Father of believers, and the references to believers as brothers and sisters are added together, they become so pervasive that the comparison of the Christian community with a ‘family' must be regarded as the most significant metaphorical usage of all.” JI Packer– If you want to judge how well a person understands Christianity, find out how much he makes of the thought of being God's child, and having God as his Father.” Joseph Hellerman– “In the New Testament, the group took priority over the individual…in light of ancient Mediterranean cultural sensibilities, the use of sibling terminology indicates that Jesus wanted his followers to interact with one another like members of a strong group, surrogate family characterized by collectivist solidarity and commitment on every front.” Joseph Hellerman - “Long-term interpersonal relationships are the crucible of genuine progress in the Christian life. People who stay also grow. People who leave do not grow. We all know people who are consumed with spiritual wanderlust[a strong desire to travel]. But we never get to know them very well because they cannot seem to stay put. They move along from church to church, ever searching for a congregation that will better satisfy their felt needs. Like trees repeatedly transplanted from soil to soil, these spiritual nomads fail to put down roots and seldom experience lasting and fruitful growth in their Christian lives.” [Insert Ministry Year Kick Off Graphic here] 2 – THE BODY OF CHRIST Romans 12:4-5 – “For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.” 1 Corinthians 12:14-19, 24-26 - For the body does not consist of one member but of many. If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would be the sense of hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell? But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, yet one body….But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. Ephesians 4:15-16 – “Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. Colossians 2:18-19 – “Let no one disqualify you, insisting on asceticism and worship of angels, going on in detail about visions, puffed up without reason by his sensuous mind, and not holding fast to the Head, from whom the whole body, nourished and knit together through its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God.

This episode has two segments: segment 1 is entitled “Teaching Theology Today” where I discuss with Brother Maurice Smith of Phi Beta Sigma, the ideas and concepts I have for the course. He challenged some of the courses description which I debunked. Segment two is entitled: WHYY's News on Delaware Students' Academic proficiency Uses Bad Data. In segment two I provide a commentary on the article ‘Tough couple of years': Delaware students' academic proficiency far below pre-pandemic levels. Going back to segment 1, we begin by reviewing The 2021 COURSE Description states that: This course is a study of the background and development of current theological thinking with an emphasis on modern and post-modern theological trends in the Christian community. The course will briefly survey theological developments up until the mid-20th century and then devote sustained attention to trends that largely have their genesis in theological ideals from the 1960s. However, I will go further in this episode to look at some more concepts and update the driving force or goal of the course which is to exploring and responding to the question: How does your theology speak to the issues and challenges of today… what solution does your theology provide? What challenges are we faced with today? Mr. Smith critiques that the course is outdated and too historical if theology today. However, I suggested that we have to look at what was before we look at what is. He agrees. We briefly discuss what theology is and the application of it. We contended with the question: is there a Caribbean theology? Mr. Smith said no but I challenged and debunked that saying that by understanding what theology is will correct one's idea about a Caribbean or regional theology, “theology is practical and therefore speaks to context and is colored by context….etc. A few questions to consider and topics to explore for the semester: 1. What is theology? 2. How does your theology speak to the issues and challenges of today… what solution does your theology provide? What challenges are we faced with today? 3. Is there a Caribbean theology and how has it evolved and 4. what relevance does it hold for us today? 5. Kirk Lougheed (ed.), Four Views on the Axiology of Theism: What Difference Does God Make? 6. What are the challenges to developing a theology today? (Temple sex gender and society) 7. The Destruction of the Canaanites: God, Genocide, and Biblical Interpretation 8. Ecclesiology for a Digital Church: Theological Reflections on a New Normal 9. Period Poverty and The Dark Womb: Re-Conceiving Theology through Reproductive Loss 10. Critical Thinking and The Priority of Mind 11. Robert C. Roberts, Recovering Christian Character: The Psychological Wisdom of Søren Kierkegaard 12. D. Bruce Hindmarsh, The Spirit of Early Evangelicalism: True Religion in a Modern World 13. Resurgence of African theology and philosophy in 20th century practices: Kametic Spirituality and Ubuntu 14. Renaldo McKenzie's, Neoliberalism, Globalization Income Inequality Poverty And Resistance 15. (Secrets to unlocking) Divine Intervention. In segment two: I critique Cris Barrish article in WHYY news which available on 90.8 on the FM dial. The story is also on their website at https://whyy.org/articles/delaware-student-testing-scores-pandemic-learning-loss/ According to Criss, “while almost all Delaware K-12 students were back in the classroom last school year — albeit with periodic pandemic quarantines and closures — statewide testing scores remained well below the achievement levels of five years ago.” But that's not true and the comparative range is deceptive, skipping 2018-2019, which shows that performance was falling after 2017 well before COVID started and schools were closed.

Wildly diverse and unbiblical definitions of "local church" continue to infiltrate contemporary trends and field practices. We MUST start with and expect a solid, biblical definition of a local church in order to plant solid, healthy churches.  The implications are HUGE. Wrong goals produce wrong results. Fuzzy targets yield a lot of misses. Inappropriate altruism only helps people feel good about something that is less than true and reproducible. We must ask these questions in order to actually fulfill the Great Commission. Nothing less, nothing else will suffice.

The post-Christian world seems to have forgotten or will not recognize the mystical aspects of Christianity. Religious arguments over the doctrines of grace and works stem from a misunderstanding of the importance of ordinances performed and the power they have within a given faith. As the Western world seems to be falling into nihilism and meaninglessness, many influencers are flocking towards Eastern religions that claim an unbroken 2000-year tradition to find truth. Questions about the enlightenment, materialism, and the nature of government infiltrating religion itself address the issue as to where the modern-day Woke movement came from. Mike and his brother Jason discuss their religion, Mormonism, as a restoration of lost truths and how the culture of the church differs from the doctrines taught by its founder. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-invictus-mind/support
