Neither Generous nor Just

Examining the thesis and assumptions of Generous Justice reveals that Keller's understanding of justice is far removed from the biblical model. Justice is not a matter of economic situation; there is no partiality with God. It is rather the faithful application of biblical laws to judicial matters.

The Apostolic Mission of the Church

The apostolic calling for the church today is that we are being sent by God into the world to accomplish His purposes. God has privileged His people to do His work. If we are an apostolic church, we're to have the face of an angel, ministering and serving one another. The gospel brings the light of forgiveness of sins, and it also changes hearts and so it changes social orders. The gospel has made conquest of individuals and nations; it has given life to dead churches; it has revolutionized continents. It liberates captives.

Ministry, Service, and Power

September 29, 2012  |  Joe Boot
The humanist vision of the future is to bring rebirth by controlling people; the biblical vision is that the powerful work of the Holy Spirit will transform people. When we try to change people by our own power we end up sinfully dominating and controlling others. We are called to serve, not change, others. We cannot make a new creation out of anyone; only God can. In seeking the kingdom and righteousness of God, we seek God's purposes instead of instant personal satisfaction. We exercise a power and authority from beyond history, for the good of future generations.
