The Gospel Comes with a House Key by Rosaria Butterfield Pdf

What did God use to draw a radical, committed unbeliever to himself? Did God take her to an evangelistic rally? Or, since she had her doctorate in literature, did he use something in print? No, God used an invitation to dinner in a modest home, from a humble couple who lived out the gospel daily, simply, and authentically. With this story of her conversion as a backdrop, Rosaria Butterfield invites us into her home to show us how God can use this same "radical, ordinary hospitality" to bring the gospel to our lost friends and neighbors. Such hospitality sees our homes as not our own, but as God's tools for the furtherance of his kingdom as we welcome those who look, think, believe, and act differently from us into our everyday, sometimes messy lives—helping them see what true Christian faith really looks like.

Summary of Rosaria Butterfield's The Gospel Comes with a House Key by Everest Media, Pdf

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I was praying for my neighbor when I received a text message alerting me that something was wrong at Hank’s house. I had always had a special affinity for front-door neighbors. #2 As neighbors were texting my turned-off phone about danger at Hank’s house, I was praying for Hank’s salvation. #3 We could barrack ourselves in the house, remind ourselves and our children that evil company perverts Scripture, and, like the good Pharisees that we are always poised to become, thank God that we are not like evil meth addicts.

The Gospel Comes With a House Key: A Critical Review by Hiram R. Diaz III Pdf

The Christian church is facing many opponents to its historical teachings on sexuality in the world and within its own walls. Because of this, many have sought out the help of Christians who testify to having been saved out of the LGBTQ lifestyle. Among those whose counsel is being diligently sought and extolled is Dr. Rosaria Butterfield. Given her former life as a Lesbian, leftist, postmodern academic, Butterfield seems to offer helpful insight into LGBTQ matters, as well as present Christians with helpful advice they can implement in evangelistic encounters and relationships. However, a critical analysis of her book and some of her related writings demonstrates rather clearly that Butterfield's doctrine of hospitality is her deeply rooted postmodern philosophical and feminist-theological beliefs, all of which stand in contradiction to the clear teachings of Scripture. In The Gospel Comes With A House Key: A Critical Review, Hiram R. Diaz III gives a careful, sustained, and detailed analysis of Butterfield's book, and warns Christians that it is neither helpful nor neutral but, in reality, a means whereby pro-LGBTQ "Christianity" can weaken the walls of sound doctrine and pave the way for more radical, "inclusive" theologies of sexuality.

Mission as Hospitality by Edward L. Smither Pdf

God is a missionary God. God is also hospitable in his nature. He makes his enemies friends and invites them to intimate communion. The mission of God in Scripture often occurs through hospitality when God’s people encounter the not-yet people of God at table or in hospitable environments and invite them to believe. This motif of mission as hospitality plays out through the Old and New Testament Scriptures, and through the Eucharist. It can also be observed through the witness of monks and contemporary missionaries who embraced a hospitable approach to mission. For the church to participate in God’s mission today, a vision to win, conquer, or change the world should be exchanged for a conviction to welcome the stranger and make room for others while proclaiming the gospel—that is, to imitate the hospitable God in mission.

A Short Guide to Groups by Jared Musgrove,Justin Elafros Pdf

We are made for community. Deep within the heart of people is a longing to both know others and be known by them, and groups ministry has the opportunity to meet these needs in every church. Groups are an art, not a science. There's no one-size-fits-all formula for designing transformational groups that God uses to mold people into the image of Christ together. There are dozens of variables and unknowns in the work of groups, but we believe the following is true: There is no lasting transformation in a person without another person or persons. The less relational your church is, the less transformational your church will be. The people in your group are a partial inheritance from the Lord right now. Groups exist for community with God and one another. So goes groups, so goes the church. So goes the church, so goes groups. Groups, at their core, embody the call to love one another found sixty times throughout the New Testament. This book is for people who love the possibilities of groups. And for those who want to.

End of Story? by Andrew Perriman Pdf

This book is an exercise in a thoroughgoing narrative theology. The social and legal validation of same-sex relationships in the West over the last two decades has presented an immense challenge to the church insofar as it seeks to remain faithful to Scripture. But it is not an isolated ethical problem. It is just one element--albeit a very important one--in the much broader, long-term overhaul and reorientation of Western culture after the collapse of the Christian consensus. The forces of history that are driving this transformation, however, have also alerted us to the historical perspectives that constrained biblical thought. Andrew Perriman suggests that Paul's argument about same-sex behavior, perhaps more clearly than any other issue, highlights the narrative shape of the mission of the early church in the Greek world. By the same token, we must ask how that storyline has been refracted across the boundary of modernity, and how it now shapes the mission of the church as it adapts to its marginalized position in an aggressively secular world.

Not Quite Fine by Carlene Hill Byron Pdf

A practical guide for people who care There is no time in history and no place in the world where so many people have understood themselves to be suffering from mental health problems. There is also virtually no time and no place in the world where people who are suffering have been so readily ostracized. In Not Quite Fine, author Carlene Hill Byron tackles the mounting dilemmas that pastors and churches face around mental health. Medicines and therapies have their roles in supporting those who live with mental health problems or mental illness. But God’s own body as the church is intended to be our greatest support in this world. How can the church step up for such a time as this? How can the body of Christ become a healing community for its members in pain—a place where the weary find strength for the journey, a place where those who mourn are raised up as rebuilders of the cities left in ruins? ​ Drawing on her own history of mental health problems and her experience as a teacher and lay counselor, Byron offers words of hope for those who struggle as well as practical insights to equip congregations to better support those who are suffering in their midst.

Christian Philanthropy by Paul S. Jeon Pdf

We tend to associate philanthropy with figures like Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, and Phil Knight. We forget, however, that God is the first and ultimate philanthropist (Titus 3:4). He has shown his love for mankind by sending his Son and pouring out his Spirit. Those who have experienced God’s philanthropy are called to do likewise, abounding in good toward all. Christian Philanthropy is a timely challenge for professing believers to make philanthropy a basic part of their lives.

Essentially One by JONATHAN LAMB Pdf

Across the barriers of race, class, culture and denomination, Christians are united through the transforming power of the gospel of grace. Yet instead of walls dismantled and alienations healed, churches are often characterised by ugly division, narrow tribalism and painful fragmentation. In a world characterised by growing social division, hostile identity politics and polarised cyber tribes - all compounded by shrill voices on social media - the author unfolds the profound biblical vision of true unity, founded on the redemptive purposes of God to create a single new humanity. This book provides crucial help for handling differences and overcoming division, calling for attitudes and behaviour that portray Christ-like character and reflect true Christian community. Applying key biblical texts, it addresses practical issues of handling conflict, managing change, using words wisely, avoiding tribalism, strengthening partnerships and building counter-cultural community in the local church. Urging us to make every effort to promote godly unity, this is a thoughtful yet passionate call to remember that we are essentially one - for the sake of God’s honour and the credibility of our Christian witness in a fractured world.
