1935 to present Non-Westerners Yvonne Wood Honeycutt, Ralph Winter, Perspectives on the World Christian Movement Understanding Culture (Worldview) Lloyd Kwast, Perspectives on the World Christian Movement Contextualization with Culture & Worldview Gospel communicators often impose their own
culture or denomination Adapt ourselves and presentation to culture of the receiving people Understand customs and underlying worldview assumptions that govern peoples way of life Worldview includes deepest level of presuppositions upon which people base their lives Immerse self in local culture Learn to think as they think Charles Kraft, Perspectives on the World Christian Movement
Beware Ethnocentrism Belief in the superiority of ones own ethnic group Misunderstanding via differences of beliefs Natural tendency to judge other cultures behaviors by values and assumptions of our own Cultures can clash without carefully learning a culture at deep levels of belief and worldview Steven Hawthorne, Perspectives on the World Christian Movement Study Guide
Redemptive Analogies God often prepares particular peoples to hear and understand the gospel People can be made aware of spiritual meaning dormant within their own culture Sawi, enemy fathers exchange a peace child Chinese symbol for righteousness is the lamb symbol above the symbol for the personal pronoun I Don Richardson, Perspectives on the World Christian Movement
Aim to Plant a Movement of Growing Churches Perhaps 90% of missionaries extract individuals and get conglomerate congregations (Western individualism has long obscured the way most people throughout history have ever become Christian) Encourage group decisions for Christ (Ac 16:30, 31) Encourage converts to remain with their people, not become separated
Aim for a constant stream of new converts Donald McGavran, Perspectives on the World Christian Movement Person of Peace Look for persons of peace, people God prepares to receive the Gospel (Luke 10) People invite missionary into their family or community to share about Jesus Can help gospel multiply in existing family and community networks New disciples do not leave their community
Church is born in a natural community Tim & Rebecca Lewis, David Watson & Paul Watson, Perspectives on the World Christian Movement Insider Movement Pursue community-oriented relationships Followers remain in their family and community relationships Respected leaders help people commit themselves to follow Jesus (and baptize new
believers) No formation of new institutions or structures Continue as simple house church movement Rick Brown, Perspectives on the World Christian Movement Churches that result from effective gospel communication almost always seem different from churches of home culture of the missionary True contextualization (adaptation) is a process of churches finding expressions that are biblically
faithful and culturally appropriate Deep level worldview changes occur If outsiders impose cultural forms, it often fails to be relevant and can lead to syncretism Turn new believers to Scriptures Give encouragement and freedom to make biblically informed decisions and changes Charles Kraft, Perspectives on the World Christian Movement Become Like, Remain Like
Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from Gods law but am under Christs law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all
people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings. 1 Cor 9:19-23 Become Like, Remain Like Become like local people and adopt their culture Reduce and eliminate ones own culture Bridge the gap Let new believers remain like their own people (1 Cor 7:17-20)
Help local people retain their culture and family identity Harley Talman, Perspectives on the World Christian Movement Holy Spirit Discipleship of New Believers Missionaries have typically taught too much regarding whats right and wrong Trust God to teach them (in their culture) Teach basic foundation of prayer, Bible study, obedience, and dependence upon Holy Spirit
Be patient with new believers and allow room for mistakes T. Wayne Dye, Perspectives on the World Christian Movement 90% presenting gospel use highly literate styles (difficult for oral learners to follow) 2/3 in world are oral communicators Can tell Bible stories in local (heart) language with help of local leaders Systematic, sequential approach, Ee-Taow,

Translation & literacy program while storying Oral strategies help avoid syncretism Completing the Task It can be done The global church has more than enough resources The church needs to become aware and
mobilized Ralph Winter & Bruce Koch, Perspectives on the World Christian Movement Digging Deeper What additional time and effort might be required to reach out to international people? Healing If it is Gods will for some to remain sick for His glory, where is
this class of people in the scripture? Sickness is a curse (Dt 28:21, 22, 27, 28, 35, 59-61, Lev 26:16, 25) The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. Jn 10:10 The Lord may allow enemies near us to teach us how to fight (Jdg 3:1, Ps 144;1) Shalom; sozo We can do all things through Christ; We have everything we need . . .; We will lay hands on the sick and they will recover; Jesus commanded us to heal the sick, cast out demons, and
raise the dead We have to learn how to cooperate with the Holy Spirit to do what the Father is doing See http://www.personal.psu.edu/jxp10/Gods_Will_to_Heal.html (Verses & Notes) Healing
What Jesus did is available to us (John 14:12, 20:21b) Healing in O.T., but new covenant is superior He took up our infirmities and carried our diseases. Mt 8:17 Jesus showed us (the will of) the Father How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him. Ac 10:38 Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power
and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. Lk 9:1-2 Instead of bringing scripture down to our level of experience, we need to bring our level of experience up to the level in Gods word.

household to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you. Nations (non-Hebrew people)
All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him. Ps 22:27 So that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations. Ps 67:2 All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, Lord; they will bring glory to your name.
