Concerning Discipleship and the Holy Spirit
In the United States of America we have developed an action oriented culture. We like to do quick work and achieve fast results. We bring this cultural habit into the practical aspects of how we organize our Churches and work to serve the Holy Spirit.
I remember reading a story about how one missionary went to a Christian country and preached the Gospel seeing 150 new believers being baptized, while another missionary went to a Muslim country and saw 1 new believer murdered for being baptized.
Can you guess which missionary received additional financial support from the American Church?
Our understanding of how to enter and live the Christian life as an individual is deeply flawed, so I tried to explain it clearly, carefully, and correctly here.
