The Cross and the Christian’s Sports by David Platt

“THE CROSS AND
THE CHRISTIAN’S
SPORTS”
STUDY GUIDE: 1 Corinthians 10:31
Summarizing 1 Corinthians 8-10…
A clear command: Flee idolatry

It is inconsistent with the gospel.
It is an offense against God.
An all-encompassing exhortation:
Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
We glorify God when we live for the good of others
Those in the church
Those without Christ
We glorify God when we realize this is good for ourselves

Sports and 1 Corinthians 10:31…
Biblical Foundations…
Sports are a good gift from a gracious God given to us for the glory of God.
Sin includes taking that which is good and turning it into a god
Good gifts make lousy gods.
Idols always disappoint
Idols ultimately destroy

Personal Examination…
Examine your heart
Examine your mind
Examine your emotions
Examine your conversations
Examine your use of money
Examine your use of time
Examine your perspective

Practical Application…
Use sports to draw attention to God’s greatness.
Maximize sports for their intended purpose
(as a way to worship God).
Keep sports in their proper place
(far behind your family and your church…and a host of other things).
Use sports to express appreciation for God’s grace.
Intentionally and continually offer thanks to God.

Let the enjoyment of sports lead to ever-increasing affection for God.
Use sports to grow in sanctification
Cultivate humility
Demonstrate honor
Develop self-discipline
Maintain self-control
Model self-sacrifice
Value growth in godliness over athletic achievement.
Prioritize what really matters in eternity
over what seems to matter on earth.
Use sports to lead others to salvation

Final Invitation…
Repent of idolatry (including any and every hint of it).
Rest in Christ (who has paid the price for all your sin).
Rejoice in God…
He is the only One who is worthy of your worship.
He is the only One who can satisfy your soul.

Christ and Children in a Culture of Death by David Platt

CHRIST AND CHILDREN IN A CULTURE OF DEATH

STUDY GUIDE: Matthew 19:13-15
The Simple Reality…
Christ cherishes children.
The Devastating Realization…
Our culture (and our country) murders children.
God and a Culture of Death… (Ps. 139:13-16)
Abortion is an affront to God’s sovereign
authority as Creator (Is. 40:28).
He is the Giver
of life (Job 12:9-10; 33:4).
He is the Taker
of life (Deut. 32:39; Job 1:21).
Abortion is an assault on God’s glorious
work in creation (Ps. 104:24).
The way God creates people compels
praise (Ps. 104:27-34).
The womb contains a person formed in the image of God (Gen. 1:26-28).
If the unborn is not human, no justification for abortion is necessary
If the unborn is human, no justification for abortion is adequate
Though the unborn is visibly hidden from man, he/she is never hidden from God (Job 10:8-13).
All of God’s works are wonderful
Even (or especially) in the case of disability (Job 9:1-3).
Even (or especially) in the midst of difficulty (Gen. 50:20; Rom. 8:28).
Abortion is an attack on God’s intimate relationship with the unborn.
He fashions them (Job 31:15) and values them (Exodus 21:22-25).
He knows them (Jeremiah 1:5) and relates to them (Psalm 22:9-10).
He calls them (Galatians 1:15), names them (Isaiah 49:1), and anoints them (Luke 1:15, 44).
The Gospel in a Culture of Death… (Titus 3:3-7)
God is the Judge of sinners (Gen. 18:25; Ps. 139:17-24; Rom. 2:6-8).
Mothers who have aborted babies, fathers who have encouraged abortion, grandparents who have supported abortion, and friends who have recommended abortion.
Doctors who have performed abortion.
Leaders who have permitted abortion (Rom. 13:1-4).
Government is given by God for the good of people.
Government is given by God for the legislation of morality
Christians who have done nothing about abortion.

God is the Savior of sinners.
He was born to save us from ourselves
He died so that we might have life
He forgives entirely (Ps. 103:11-12; Is. 43:25; 1 Jn. 1:9) and heals deeply (Lk. 7:47-50).
He restores completely (Rom. 8:1) and redeems fully (Rom. 8:28).
Our Lives in a Culture of Death… (Eph. 5:7-11; Jms. 1:22-25)
Look around
Learn the facts about abortion.
See the pictures of abortion.
Listen to the victims of abortion.
Step forward
Share your burdens from the past with brothers and/or sisters.
Share your struggles in the present with brothers and/or sisters.
Speak up
Before God.

David Platt – Liberty University Convocation: The importance and urgency of taking the Gospel to unreached people groups

00000000000000

On, September 9th, at Convocation, North America’s largest weekly gathering of Christian students, David Platt spoke to students about the importance and urgency of taking the Gospel to unreached people groups. The Children of the World choir also performed as a part of Global Focus Week.

David Platt is the president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s International Mission Board, and author of New York Times Best Seller Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream.

David Platt: What if missionaries are not just people who leave their jobs to take the Gospel around the world, but missionaries also include people who leverage their jobs to take the Gospel around the world? You look back in Christian history and you see a group of people called the Moravians. It is said that at least 1 out of 92, some say at least one out of 58 of them, were crossing cultures for the spread of the Gospel. Well, let’s take the more conservative number, 1 out of 92 were crossing cultures for the spread of the Gospel. The International Mission Board represents about 40,000 churches. I think about what would happen if we had that kind of ratio today. 40,000 churches, say there’s about 16 million members in those churches. Let’s just assume 10 million of those people are living members in their churches.. If that was happening just in this one group of churches, this one denomination of churches, that would be over 100,000 missionaries. Not 5,000. We don’t even think in those kind of terms and I’m convinceed that we need to think in those kinds of terms. Now, the beauty of this is the Moravians weren’t doing this because they had a well financed sophisticated mission program. Np, they were doing this because they were leveraging the opportunities God was giving them to move to other cultures and work there for the spread of the Gospel. They would look for jobs in other countries and cultures, and contexts. And they would deliberately work there  and spread the Gospel as they worked there. Some of them would even sell themselves into slavery. They’d see a slave ship about to go to this country that didn’t have the Gospel and they would say, „Well. that’s one way to get the Gospel into that country.” And so, they would sell themselves to become slaves in order to get on that boat, in order to get to that country and proclaim the name of Christ. Multitudes of them going, all around the world. I’m just wondering what would happen if we had that kind of mindset. And so, I look at this arena, full of followers of Christ who are getting a world class education in all sorts of degrees and I am pleading for you, based upon what we are to look at the Word. I am pleading for you to leverage this education , to leverage your degree. to get the Gospel to people who’ve never heard it.

David Platt – Secret Church 2015

What is Secret Church?

When we think of „church” in America, we think of going to meet at a building, singing, praying and hearing a message from a pastor or teacher. But in many places around the world, „church” meets in a home, an apartment, and sometimes even in secret. Many times there are just a few believers who know and follow Christ. These small groups of Christ-followers often meet for many hours in study, prayer, and fellowship. Sometimes they face great difficulties to meet together. In some places it may even be dangerous to gather as a church to worship, pray, and study the Word. So when they come together, they want to make the most of their time together.

Secret Church is our „house church” where we meet periodically for an intense time of Bible study—lasting 6+ hours—including a time of prayer for our brothers and sisters across the globe who are facing persecution and for those who have still not heard the gospel. This is not for the uncommitted or faint at heart. But if you desire to know God more deeply through His Word and know His church more fully around the world, then please join us for Secret Church.

Our prayer is that God will use this focused time of study and prayer to enrich our knowledge of His Word. We pray that we would also gain understanding of the state of His church and our brothers and sisters around the world who face many difficulties—and even persecution—as they follow Christ.

The objective of Secret Church is not just to come and learn for one night but to take what we’ve learned and pass it along to others. We also want to recognize the great need to pray and come alongside our brothers and sisters who live in places around the world where there is little to no gospel witness or where the gospel is met with resistance. We want to use what we’ve learned during this gathering to make disciples of Christ—both locally and globally.

„Stire: Baptistii De Sud Accepta Darul Vorbirii In Alte Limbi”

Urgenta nevoilor misionare  ne-a indreptat la schimbarea regulilor

Consiliul de Administratie al Misiunii Internationale (IMB), ce apartine de Conventia Baptistilor de Sud, a aprobat saptamana trecuta(miercuri) schimbari de regulament referitor la calificarile de baza pe care trebuie sa le indeplineasca misionarii IMB. Aceasta a dus la diverse neantelegeri comunicate online si in presa in legatura cu aceste schimbari si astfel aceste rapoarte eronate ne dau posibilitatea de a oferi clarificari necesare cu privire la ceea ce insemneaza si ceea ce nu insemneaza aceasta schimbare de regulament.

Forta motrica din spatele acestor schimbari este in scopul de a unifica toate bisericile apartinatoare Conventiei Baptistilor de Sud (SBC), sub umbrela Credinta si Mesajul Baptist pentru a trimite echipe nelimitate de misionari la oamenii si locurile la care inca nu s-a patruns, pentru gloria lui Dumnezeu, si eu nu vreau ca aceasta sa fie inteleasa gresit.

Un subiect care a atras atentia in mod particular este practicarea vorbirii in alte limbi si folosirea rugaciunii private in alte limbi. Pana in momentul acesta, daca o persoana a vorbit in alte limbi sau a practicat rogaciunea privata in alte limbi, ei au fost imediat descalificati pentru a fi numiti misionari pentru IMB. Consiliul de Administratie a votat miercurea trecuta ca sa elimine aceasta descalificare automata.

Totusi, acesta a fost un vot care sa adreseze chestiuni de calificari pentru misionarii potentiali in biserica si nu aspectul lucrarii practice de efectiv a misionarilor IMB de pe teren.

Aceasta este o distinctie critica in decursul admiterii, pregatirii si supravegherii misionarilor, si totodata IMB adreseaza multe semnificatii teologice, misiologice, eclesiologice si subiecte practice care includ folosirea vorbirii in alte limbi si rugaciunea privata in alte limbi. Desi aceste subiecte nu pot afecta calificarile de baza stabilite,  afecteaza munca noastra de zi cu zi.

Pozitia tinuta de multa vreme a lui IMB ramane in afect ca  aceste practici nu pot fi normative in predarea lor sau in practici disruptive. Printr-un proces de selectie atenta, pregatire si supraveghere, IMB asigura ca fiecare misionar ramane hotarat concentrat pentru a face ucenici si a inmulti bisericile in felul de a reprezenta cu credinciosie teologia, misiologia, eclesiologia si practica Baptistilor de Sud.

Dati-mi voie sa repet ca scopul acestor schimbari este ca in mod si mai intentionat sa unim masurile IMB cu crezul si practicarea Baptistilor de Sud asa cum este exprimata in statutul de credinta la care peste 40 de mii de biserici din organizatia Baptistilor de Sud au fost deacord: Credinta si Mesajul Baptist.

Pe langa aceasta, orice schimbari pe care le facem la IMB, nu sunt considerate si implementate pur si simplu de dragul schimbarii. Realitatea lumii pierdute de astazi ne face sa ne unim si sa actionam cu urgenta pentru a duce Evanghelia la mai multi oameni si locuri, toate acestea in timp ce ramanem stransi legati in convingerile Baptistilor de Sud.

David Platt in misiune

Ca brat de misiune internationala a Conventiei Bisericilor de Sud, eu sunt convins ca noi nu ne putem multumi cu nimic mai putin decat la o abordare rationala concentrata de a imputernicii echipe nelimitate de misionari ca sa faca ucenici si sa inmulteasca bisericile intre oamenii si locurile unde inca nu s-a patruns, pentru gloria lui Dumnezeu.

Eu am fost foarte incurajat de spiritul de unitate a membrilor din consiliu la raspunsurile pe care le-am primit de la pastori si lideri de peste tot in SBC, decand am luat aceste decizii. Ma rog si sper ca in zilele ce urmeaza, IMB il va inalta pe Christos, va mobiliza pe crestini, va echipa biserica, si va facilita plantari de biserici printre oamenii la care inca nu s-a ajuns, pentru ca noi sa ne avem partea noastra in realizarea eventuala  a Mareei Trimitere.

Traducere Blogul Agnus Dei –  Charisma News: Southern Baptists Change Policy on Speaking in Tongues https://www.facebook.com/charismanews/posts/815491038537098

Dupa o opozitie de peste zece ani, Conventia de Sud Baptista, va admite candidati misionari care vorbesc in limbi, aceasta fiind o practica asociata cu Penticostalii si bisericile carismatice.

Noua masura aprobata miercuri, 13 Mai de conducerea Internationala de Misiune, inverseaza masura care a fost implementata timp de peste zece ani.

Vorbirea in alte limbi este o practica crestina care a inceput odata cu Biserica Primara despre care este scris in Noul Testament, in care oamenii se roaga intr-o limba pe care ei nu o cunosc. nu o inteleg sau no o controleaza. Aceasta practicare a vorbirii in alte limbi a incetat, pana cand a aparut miscarea penticostala, la inceputul secololui 20. In Bisericile Penticostale, vorbirea in alte limbi este considerata a fi una din darurile Duhului Sfant care includ de asemenea darul vindecarilor si darul proorociei.

Presedintele Bordului International de Misiune Baptiste de Sud, David Platt.

Permitand misionarilor de la Biserica  de Sud sa vorbeasca in alte limbi, sau cum unii lideri de la Conventia Bisericilor de Sud, se refera la aceasta rugaciune ca este „o rugaciune privata in alta limba”, vorbeste depre puterea mare de crestere a Bisericlior Penticostale din Africa, Asia si America de Sud, locuri unde Bisericile din Conventia Baptista de Sud concureaza pentru noi convertiti si unde noii crestini energizati, imbratiseaza cu mult entuziasm aceasta practica.

,,In asa de multe parti ale lumii, aceste experente carismatice sunt normative,” a spus Bill Leonard, un profesor de Istorie Crestina de la Scoala Divinatatii din Wake Forest. Gruparile crestine care se opun acestor manifestari ale Duhului Sfant, raman in urma din punct de vedere evanghelistic.”

Aceasta schimbare nu insemneaza ca Baptistii de Sud vor delega misionari care vorbesc in alte limbi. Dar Wendy Norvelle, o purtatoare de cuvant pentru organizatia Internationala a Conventiei Bisericilor Baptiste de Sud, a dat un raspuns afirmativ ca acesta practica de vorbire in alte limbi, nu va mai duce la o descalificare automata.

Baptistii Suderani sau mandrit de multa vreme ca  au fost cei mai ambitiosi misionari din lume – ajungand la tari si regiuni in care putini au fost cei care au indraznit sa ajunga – dar care acum dau de o competitie tot mai puternica din partea cresterii rapide a Crestinismului Penticostal care acum se estimeaza ca are peste 300 de milioane de membri in toata lumea.

In anul 2005, Bordul Misiunii Internationale a creat directive specifice care au descalificat pe toti candidatii misionari care vorbeau in limbi. Pentru Baptistii de Sud, aceasta practica cunoscuta de asemenea sub numele de glosalia (glossolalia), a incetat dupa moartea apostolilor Domnului Isus. Interzicerea vorbirii in alte limbi a devenit felul de a distinge acesta denominatiune de celelalte.

In zilele de astazi, Biserica de Sud nu-si mai poate permite o astfel de distinctie.

,,Biserica de Sud experimenteaza o asa de mare trauma demografica de membri si botezuri, incat trebuie sa-si gaseasca noi membri printre populatia de alta culoare,” a spus Leonard.

Intradevar, acest subiect a devenit asa de important pentru Baptistii Suderani incat a fost pus in capul listei cu prioritati.

Tongues gift Holy Spirit,,Daca cineva a spus ca vorbeste in alte limbi, ei au fost descalificati in mod automat, in esenta pentru ca au fost sinceri,” a spus Wade Burleson, un pastor din Enid, Oklahoma, care s-a opus acestei interziceri.

Aceasta masura de schimbare a fost aprobata saptamana trecuta cu ocazia unei intruniri de administratie in Louisville, Kentucky a Consiliului Internatonal de Misiune care va lasa chestiunea vorbirii in alte limbi in aceasta cerere.
