Some good questions about church and gospel from a missionary

I’ve enjoyed interacting with Miguel, a missionary in Ecuador. I was hoping to be able to meet him in person when he was in the Raleigh area last summer, but it didn’t work out unfortunately.

He always asks great questions on his blog “God Directed Deviations,” and he is very good at continuing the discussion in the comments. His latest two posts are excellent examples:

First, in his post “Church Planters & Church Killers,” he tells of a problem between local church communities and denominational leadership. What would you do about this kind of issue? (I’ve already responded in the comments on his post.)

Also, in his post “The Gospel ‘Presented’ outside of its Gospel Presenting Context,” Miguel raises questions about proclaiming the gospel. What does it mean? How do we do it? What has to be included for it to be “gospel”? I haven’t replied to this post yet, but I’m hoping for another great conversation.

I encourage you to read both posts. Interact with Miguel in the comments.

Then, let us know what you think about his posts.
