GCP028: God’s Family
On the Sojourn Radio podcast, today Ken and Mike talk about Johann Gutenberg, James Hepburn, Austin Peay, the new Pope, Bibles to SBC Churches, and Bible study in Ephesians. This Week in Church History March 13, 1456 (traditional date): Johann Gutenberg first publishes the Bible on his printing press with movable type (see issue 16: William Tyndale and issue 43: How We Got Our Bible). March 13, 1815: Presbyterian medical missionary James Hepburn is born in Milton, Pennsylvania. In the course of his missions work, he compiled the first Japanese-English dictionary and supervised the first complete translation of the Bible into Japanese (which was published in 1888). Wycliffe Bible Translators March 13, 1925: Austin Peay, governor of Tennessee, signs the "Butler Bill," prohibiting any teaching that contradicted the Genesis creation story. By July, John Scopes was on trial for violating the legislation and the "trial of the century" had begun. Theological News Pope Francis – Jorge Bergoglio [Wikipedia] “Evangelism-themed Bibles en route to churches” – Posted on Mar 5, 2013 | by Tobin Perry ALPHARETTA, Ga. (BP) -- Every Southern Baptist and Canadian National Baptist church in North America will receive a case of New Testaments from the North American Mission Board by early April. The "Find It Here" New Testaments are part of NAMB's God's Plan for Sharing: GPS initiative to encourage "Every Believer Sharing, Every Person Hearing" by 2020. "If your church hasn't been out in your community sharing Christ in a while, we think these Bibles are a great tool for outreach," NAMB President Kevin Ezell said. "And if you are already active in reaching your community, this is one more tool we think everyone will want to use." Churches began receiving the shipments in mid-February. Because of the large number being shipped, it will take six weeks for churches to receive their New Testaments. Each case contains 48 New Testaments and a card that tells pastors why the New Testaments were sent to them and how they can order more. Churches are asked to use the New Testaments as part of their evangelistic efforts. Spanish-speaking churches will receive a Spanish-language translation. Each New Testament has specific verses marked to guide evangelistic conversations. On the back of each New Testament, those looking for spiritual help are given the findithere.com Web address and a phone number where they can find spiritual counseling. The English New Testaments being shipped to churches use the Holman Christian Standard version of the text. "As we encourage every believer to share, we see this as a tool they can use to talk to people about Christ," said Al Gilbert, NAMB's vice president for evangelism. "Then the person hearing about Christ will have the opportunity to find out more on findithere.com." Gilbert said the Find It Here campaign undergirds the God's Plan for Sharing: GPS evangelistic initiative. The evangelistic Find It Here website, New Testaments and related materials support what churches are doing to share Christ with every person in North America. At least one state convention has already made plans for how to use additional New Testaments. The Missouri Baptist Convention ordered 50,000 Find It Here New Testaments to encourage Missouri Baptists to begin a movement that will lead to distributing 1 million New Testaments to Missourians in 2014. "I chose to use the Find It Here New Testaments because they are marked, use the HCSB translation and are attractive," said Mark Snowden, the evangelism/discipleship strategist at the Missouri Baptist Convention. "The Bible distribution strategy is at the heart of our state GPS 2014-15 emphasis on ministry evangelism." The Find It Here New Testaments were produced through a partnership between NAMB and LifeWay Christian Resources. LifeWay assisted in the development of the New Testaments and printed them at a discounted rate.

SR027: Grace through Faith and Roe v Wade
On the Sojourn Radio podcast, today Ken and Mike talk about Martin Luther King Jr., Vincent of Saragossa, 40th anniversary of Roe Vs Wade, and Part 2 of Paul’s Letter to Ephesians. Theological Quote Martin Luther King, Jr. “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” This Week in Church History January 22, 304 (traditional date): Vincent of Saragossa, one of the most famous martyrs of the early church, is killed. Starved, racked, roasted on a gridiron, thrown into prison, and set in stocks, he refused to sacrifice. According to Augustine, his fame extended everywhere in the Roman Empire and "wherever the name of Christ was known" (see issue 27: Persecution in the Early Church). Theological News Abortion and the Gospel— Russell Moore January 22ND, 2013 As today marks the fortieth anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, most Christians recognize, and rightly so, the loss of millions of unborn human lives. What we often forget is the second casualty of an abortion culture: the consciences of countless men and women. Too often, pastors and church leaders assume that, when talking about abortion, their invisible debating partner is the “pro-choice” television commentator or politician. Not so. Many of the people endangered by the abortion culture aren’t even pro-choice. In your congregation this Sunday, and in the neighborhoods around you right now, there are women vulnerable to abortionist propaganda, not because they reject the church but because they’re afraid they ‘ll lose the church. Pregnant young women are scared they will scandalize church people when they start to show, so they keep it secret. Parents are fearful their pregnant daughter, or their son’s pregnant girlfriend, will prompt the rest of the congregation to see them as bad families. As they keep all of this secret from the Body of Christ, many of them fall prey to the false gospel of the abortion clinic. “We can take care of this for you,” these people say. “And it will all go away.” Moreover, there are thousands of men and women in our churches who have aborted their children, or urged the abortion of their grandchildren. Bearing the shame of this, they keep it secret. And in the concealment, the satanic powers accuse them: “We know who you are; you’re a murderer, like us.” Every time pastors and church leaders speak, they are speaking, at least potentially, to these men and women, the aborting and the abortionists. Many of these people don’t argue that the “fetus” is a “person.” Their consciences testify to that, and they’re either tortured by this or violently trying to sear over that persistent internal message. The answer, for the church, is to preach the gospel to the conscience. For many evangelicals, to “preach the gospel” seems to be obvious and ineffective because they think this means to, by rote, prompt people to accept Jesus and go to heaven. But the gospel speaks right where the abortion culture is in slavery, to the conscience. For one thing, those guilty of this silent atrocity often don’t think we’re talking to them. For some, the demonic structures have helped them to conceal this secret, and to convince them the safest thing to do is to try to forget it altogether. Others are so burdened down by guilt, they really don’t believe they are included in the “whosoever will” of our gospel invitations. Speak directly to these people. To the woman who has had the abortion. To the man who has paid for an abortion. To the health care worker who has profited off of tearing apart the bodies of the young and the consciences of their parents. Speak clearly of the horror of judgement to come. Confirm what every accusing conscience already knows: clinic privacy laws cannot keep all this from being exposed at the tribunal of Christ. When the Light shines, there’s not enough darkness in which to hide and cringe. But don’t stop there.
