Welcome to the blog:
I am passionate about mission and evangelism. Leadership and church life. Theology and philosophy. Faith and spirituality. Discipleship. Education. Beach and ocean. My wife and 3 daughters. And much, much more.
Join me as I deep dive into critical thinking around global perspectives on mission and theology. Must the Western church continue to pursue Eurocentric models of mission to be effective? Or can we learn from diverse, multi-ethnic voices? (Hint: The answer is yes)
There’s space in each post for you to leave comments, and I sincerely hope you do.

*영문 블로그는 이곳에서 구독하실 수 있습니다. 몇몇 기독교 운동에서 이사야 53:4-6. 마태복음 8:14-17 그리고 베드로전서 2:21-25를 근거로 삼아 예수님의 속죄와 육체적 질병의 치유를 연결하는 시도가 있었습니다. 이러한 신학은 실제로 이미 전 세계적으로 발달 되었으며, 특히 제 3세계, 은사 주의 혹은 오순절파 교리를 실천하는 교회에는 이미 만연하게 자리 잡고 있는 신학입니다. 우리는 이 시점에서 이러한 치유 신학이 정말로 그들이 근거로서 제시하는 성경 구절들로...read more

* 영어 버전은 이곳을 클릭하여 보실 수 있습니다. 예수님께서 대답하여 이르시되 "너희가 성경도, 하나님의 능력도 알지 못하는 고로 오해하였도다." (마태 22:29). 성령세례를 경험한 그날 밤은 나를 예수님의 제자로 거듭나게 하는 중요한 경험으로 기억돼 왔습니다. 그 해 나는 열여섯이 되었고 내게 특별 한 점이 있었다면 나는 상처와 절망, 그리고 분노로 가득 차있는 소년이었습니다. 어느 날 밤, 나는 오순절 교회에서 열리는 집회에 참석했고 성령을 받고 싶으면 앞으로 나와...read more
