The church needs a global paradigm

The church cannot escape globalization. The world is so different now. Words like "mission", "fellowship", "community" have all taken on new meanings. It's time for a paradigm shift - is there a stronger word than "shift"?

That America continues to look inward is no secret. While Americans may be among the most info-saturated people in the world, their knowledge of the world around them continues to dwindle. Few Americans have traveled the globe, fewer still have worked in the global marketplace.

...why the American evangelical community did “not pause for a moment in the rush to war to consider the near-unanimous disapproval of the global Christian community?” As America launched its war in Iraq (or on Iraq – as the European media sees it), The White House’s Christian supporters stood silent as their co-religionists across the globe spoke in unison against the invasion of Iraq.

America’s Christians must “reach out to our brothers and sisters abroad. We must reshape the way we live in the global Christian community…” Going global has become an imperative – businesses, students, politicians, thinkers, doers…and now believers must redouble their efforts to understand and integrate with the rest of the world.



  • 正如林一峰話齋,閱讀,也是一種 state of mind。
  • 所以不限文字,還有聲音影像一切雜崩能東西,都在涉獵反思消化乾坤大挪移之列。
  • 看重的只有一個字:Insight
