Priorities

Priority1

I just had a great conversation with a church planting friend who is really knocking it out of the park in Chattanooga, TN.  In the midst of our conversation, he said something that has really made me think…

Which is more important?  MISSIONAL PRIORITY or THEOLOGICAL PURITY?

  • Which is more important to most churches?
  • Which is more important in my own theology of ministry?
  • Which is more important to Jesus?

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

    I think we can all agree that you need both and you need a balance. And that we need the Holy Spirit.<br><br>We can also agree (I think) that going with one extreme over the other will be a very bad thing.<br><br>But the real question is what happens within the balance when push comes to shove — that is, when we have to choose one over the other.<br><br>For example, in the Gospel, it seems that Jesus chooses missional priority over theological purity on the issue of divorce… and in terms of who he hangs out with, etc.<br><br>So, yes to balance — but when push comes to shove, which wins?
