In a cultural moment that is growing hostile towards the Church, it’s becoming easier than ever for Christians to slip into mission drift.
“Without careful attention, faith-based organizations will inevitably drift from their founding mission. It’s that simple. It will happen.” – Peter Greer
Out of defensiveness and self preservation, it can become easy for us to turn our mission field into a battle field, where the focus and goal shifts from reaching the lost to defeating them in political and social battles.
This isn’t to say Christians should not have an influence on the culture, far from it. It is an admonishment to walk cautiously in these times and keep the main thing the main thing. It is encouragement to avoid the extremes of both the far-left and far-right, and ensure the main thing we are radical about is the Gospel and everything that comes with it.
In this final episode of the negative World Series, Aaron Salvato, Brian Higgins, and Mike Doyle discuss how we can have wisdom while living in the negative world.
