Accommodation vs. Transformation

July 19, 2010

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.

--2 Timothy 3:16-17

Nearly a generation ago, Francis Schaeffer, the great biblical apologist and philosopher said, "Here is the great evangelical disaster: the failure of the evangelical world to stand for Truth as Truth!

What does this mean to you and me? I'll tell you. Dr. Schaeffer was saying that believers were failing to stand upon God's Word as the ultimate source of Truth. 

This disaster continues today and it's called "accommodation." The evangelical Church has accommodated the spirit of the age, and this accommodation is pervasive throughout the Church.

Rather than championing the Scripture to transform the world, the Church has turned to other sources and resources. Maybe it's happened in your church. Somewhere along the way the choice was made to switch things up in order to reach a specific crowd, or to express an opinion, or to follow a trend.

But in those actions we've accommodated the world rather than tending to the transformation of the world through the Scriptures. Rather than changing the world, many find themselves changed by the world!

Resolve this issue for yourself today. As a Christ-follower, make certain you are grounded in the life-changing Truth of Jesus Christ, which is the Word of God.

RATHER THAN CHANGING THE WORLD,
MANY FIND THEMSELVES CHANGED BY THE WORLD!

OUR THANKS TO YOU!

Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out

Dear Friend,

Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today!  --Jack Graham
