Some of us belong to churches which are situated among marginalized peoples who live in situations of poverty . Others come from churches situated in affluent areas of the world.

Some of us belong to churches which are situated among marginalized peoples who live in situations of poverty, powerlessness, and oppression. We are deeply grateful to our heavenly Father for allowing us the privilege of sharing our lives with one another, studying the Scriptures in small groups, considering papers on aspects of human development and transformation, and looking closely at the implications of case studies and histories which describe different responses to human need

The Catholic Church in Australia was under inquiry by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse from . 1. How does the Church, in the face of this latest epoch of bad (human) behavior, continue to justify its claims to having a divine nature?

The Catholic Church in Australia was under inquiry by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse from 2013 to 2017, when a final report was issued. Similar to findings of the Pennsylvania grand jury in the United States, the Royal Commission brought to light instances of abuse, as well as cover-ups by bishops and religious superiors. How does the Church, in the face of this latest epoch of bad (human) behavior, continue to justify its claims to having a divine nature? 2. Alternatively, does the church have sufficient humility (and intelligence) to get real about its supposed divine nature?

The Church should try to harmonize theory and practice by first of all preaching justice within its ranks. A reflection on the Church’s response to human rights issues in Africa provokes a lot of questions.

The Church should try to harmonize theory and practice by first of all preaching justice within its ranks. Above all, we should not allow Islam overthrow the values we have inherited from the missionaries who implanted the gospel on the African continent. Those who sacrificed their lives and pleasure for the sake of the gospel to African so that the light of Jesus will shine in our hearts and make us dignified. One may ask the questions: What is the African hierarchy doing to defend the rights of citizens against oppressive governments?

Many of us plant churches because we have determined that church planting is perhaps the most strategic way to. .Jesus wants our hearts, our affections, and our listening ears.

Many of us plant churches because we have determined that church planting is perhaps the most strategic way to make new disciples of Jesus. But if that is the case, then the end goal needs to be making disciples of Jesus (non self-sustaining church plants) and church planting becomes one of the very important ways we do this. Our good Father wants us to be faithful and fruitful in the places he has rooted us, and to resist judging fruitfulness based on the world’s measures of success. Some are asked to sow, some are asked to water, but it is God who makes a plant grow.

The churches have to discover what positions and actions to take in regard to sex relations before and after marriage .

The churches have to discover what positions and actions to take in regard to sex relations before and after marriage; illegitimacy; in some cultures polygamy or concubinage as a social system sanctioned by law and customs; in some Western cultures short-term marriages, or liaisons, easy divorce; in all parts of the world mixed marriages (inter-faith, inter-confessional and inter-racial) with. the WCC addressed issues of human sexuality through different studies in response to requests coming from the member churches, which were taken up by the decision making bodies

  • There are many new books written (especially from the Emergent Church movement) about the church breaking out of its walls and touching lives throughout the world. In a large personal library of world aid, humanitarian service, social justice, and compassion I can truly state that this one book raced from "new to me" to first place in my library on such topics. This was a book that is detailed in some areas, engaging in other areas, and thoroughly insightful on issues of social justice, compassion, mission, political/social change, and filled with insights from people from many cultures, nations, and perspectives who wrote each chapter.

    Admittedly, this compendium of "white papers" was distilled after one of the Lausanne meetings (Wheaton 1983) and could be viewed as dated and irrelevant to the 21st Century. However, the ideas, the suggestions, the data and more could not be more relevant for today's world. Yes, some of the data needs to be adjusted to current information (world population, etc.) but there is very little, if any, changes in the nature, the call, the critique and challenges given out by these authors. Whether the author of each chapter is from South America, Europe, the Asian sub-continent, or the western world I have rarely found a volume that has challenged my thinking for the causes of social transformation than this one.

    If I were working with an agency, NGO, or company whose purpose it was to include the church in responding to world need, this is one book I would freely give to the key leader, CEO, Senior Pastor, and mission committee. This is not only a volume that is informative, but I found it to a volume (if not every single chapter) filled with practical ideas for implementation, for changing the ethnocentrism of the church, and changing the means and ways that churches respond to the needs of the world.

    Definitely a top recommendation in my book! I would not only read it and place it in my library (which I have done) I would recommend it and I would keep it handy as a reference tool for keeping a church on the cutting edge of social transformation.

  • From the back cover of the 1987 version: This book contains the revised conference proceedings from the consultation "The Church in Response to Human Need," held in Wheaton, Illinois, in June 1983. In the papers collected here, writers from five continents consider whether the Bible indicates any method for ministry among the poor; the place of the poor in God's plan; God's purpose and the movement of human history; the nature of the gospel of the kingdom; and the interrelation of the gospel and human culture. In addition to the individual papers, the book includes the statement "Transformation," which was produced by the consultation as a whole.
