Local Theology for the Global Church*: Principles for an Evangelical Approach to Contextualization
This model has restructured my own thinking about theology, forcing me to examine the weight I place on any given debate and to check my impulse to imagine the Church in my own image. It demands a balance of humility and trust, pairing a defining allegiance to Christ with an irenic approach to intra-church debates.

Picture concentric circles. In the middle, in the smallest circle, is Jesus. Jesus is the nonnegotiable anchor of our faith. In this circle are what we might call dogmas, a very limited set of beliefs about God and what it means to be a Christian.

The creed is not very detailed, and because it leaves out so much, its content can be universally accepted among orthodox Christians. Still, those missing details matter, too. Those go in the next concentric circle, which contains what we can call doctrine.
These are the sorts of issues, like baptism or predestination, that divide denominations. The last and biggest circle holds opinions, where differences of belief can peacefully coexist within the same denomination or even congregation. This could be questions like the age of the earth or the destiny of the unevangelized. Rather, it is a route to understanding, appreciating, and even learning from the diversity within orthodoxy.
It is a check on the negative aspect of our tribalism, a reminder that though many of our fellow Christians do not look, think, worship, or pray like we do, they are nevertheless part of our tribe. Copyright c Bonnie Kristian by Faithwords.endupersmar.tk
Theology without Borders: An Introduction to Global Conversations
All rights reserved. The Missio Alliance Writing Collectives exist as a ministry of writing to resource theological practitioners for mission. This sort of thoughtful engagement is something that we seek to engender not only in our publishing, but in conversations that unfold as a result in the comment section of our articles. At the same time, censorship of comments by those who disagree with points made by authors, whose anger or limited perspective taints their words, or who simply feel the need to express their own opinion on a topic without any meaningful engagement with the article or comment in question can mask an important window into the true state of Christian discourse.
As such, Missio Alliance sets forth the following suggestions for those who wish to engage in conversation around our writing:. Am I understanding you correctly? We deeply desire and value the voice and perspective of our readers. However you may react to an article we publish or a fellow commenter, we encourage you to set forth that reaction is the most constructive way possible.
