Aprendi a cultivar uma fé 'remota' quando fui proibida de frequentar a igreja

Cinco lições para ser igreja, juntos, enquanto vivemos separados.


Quando eu tinha 15 anos, costumava escutar na rádio ao ensino evangélico conservador do programa Back to the Bible e assistir, na TV, ao Clube 700. Eu lia um livro dos pregadores de cura divina Frances e Charles Hunter, seguido de um livro do pastor romeno Richard Wurmbrand sobre perseguição. Também lia as Escrituras, com enfoque devocional, em uma tradução do Novo Testamento de J. B. Phillips e estudava minha Bíblia na tradução New American Standard.


Aquela era uma abordagem discipular muito pouco convencional para uma adolescente que seguia a Jesus. Mas, quando meus pais judeus me disseram: "Enquanto você viver sob o nosso teto, não permitiremos que frequente a igreja", deixaram claro o desejo de que a proibição acabasse com minha nova fé em Jesus, o Messias.


Nos primeiros três anos como crente, adorei sozinha no meu quarto, sendo alimentada pela pregação na rádio e por livros cristãos. Tornei-me adepta de fazer coisas escondida pela casa. Eu não pude frequentar a igreja regularmente até completar 18 anos. Até aquele momento, busquei ter a comunhão que me fosse possível com amigos na escola e em visitas ocasionais à igreja deles sempre que passava a noite em sua casa.


Nas últimas semanas, as regras de isolamento social do COVID-19 levaram a maioria dos crentes (embora não todos) para fora dos templos e para dentro de casa. Os membros de igrejas dos Estados Unidos agora estão participando de cultos, reuniões de oração e estudos bíblicos via Zoom, lives do Facebook ou pelo YouTube. Enquanto ...

Kapan Doktrin Memecah Belah, dan Kapan Persatuan Menang?

Bagaimana "teologis triase" menolong kita untuk memilih peperangan dalam hal iman.


[Read in English | Read in Portuguese]


Ekumenikal. Non-denominasi. Di kalangan evangelikalisme tertentu, ini adalah kata-kata najis. ("Katolik" adalah yang lainnya.) Para kritikus mengatakan bahwa kata-kata ini mewakili teologi yang lemah — keyakinan yang intinya adalah bahwa keyakinan tidak terlalu penting asalkan kita semua bisa hidup bersama. Bagi beberapa orang, mereka mewakili sebuah potensi ancaman terhadap misi gereja atau bahkan Injil itu sendiri.


Sebagian orang percaya mengambil pandangan yang lebih bersahabat dari bahasa pendamaian. Tanpa mengkompromikan keyakinan inti mereka, mereka ingin membangun jembatan dengan berbagai gereja dan organisasi Kristen di seluruh dunia, sedapat-dapatnya ingin bergabung bersama dalam sebuah misi. Prinsip-prinsip ini adalah mendasar bagi pelayanan berbagai kelompok seperti Gerakan Lausanne, Evangelikal dan Katolik Bersatu, Reformasi Pengakuan Katolik, dan Pusat Pembaruan Baptis (di mana saya melayani sebagai direktur editorial).


Namun, bahkan di antara kami sendiri yang memperjuangkan cita-cita CS Lewis tentang “kekristenan semata” merasa sulit untuk dipraktikkan, terutama dalam menghadapi perpecahan denominasi dan teologis yang sudah sangat mengakar.


Beberapa tahun yang lalu, Albert Mohler mempopulerkan frasa "teologis triase." Meskipun konsep dasar berbagi kekerabatan tertentu dengan kata kunci “Kristen belaka” yang lainnya, hal ini memicu percakapan yang diperbaharui tentang bagaimana dan mengapa orang Kristen setuju, tidak setuju, atau setuju untuk tidak setuju tentang berbagai pokok teologi.


Istilah triase, tentunya, berasal dari bidang perawatan medis. Ini merujuk pada pilihan-pilihan yang terpaksa harus dibuat oleh para tenaga ...

‘Não sabemos o que fazer, mas os nossos olhos se voltam para ti.’

Palavras transformadoras para liderar em tempos sem precedentes.


Não sabemos o que fazer, mas os nossos olhos se voltam para ti. 2 Cr. 20.12 (NVI)


Quando Josafá, um rei do Antigo Testamento, recebeu a notícia de que três exércitos haviam conspirado juntos e se opunham a ele em um ataque maciço, ele fez uma manobra decisiva e pouco convencional.


Todo líder mundo afora se encontra hoje em situação semelhante.


Diante do avanço em três frentes como a de uma pandemia global de saúde, uma economia mundial que está estagnada e uma crise de ansiedade e medo que atinge a muitos, o que podemos aprender com esse antigo líder, e como podemos aplicar para os difíceis dias atuais?


As chances não eram boas para Josafá e, honestamente, também não são tão boas para muitas famílias e negócios no presente momento.


Lá no fundo, a maioria dos líderes que já enfrentaram tempestades brutais sabe que vamos superar isso. Nós sempre superamos. Suportaremos a mortandade e emergiremos das profundezas para crescer e prosperar novamente. Mas isso vai levar tempo. Bastante tempo. Neste momento, estamos no vale da sombra da morte.


Então, como lidamos com essas horas tão sombrias?


Vamos olhar atentamente para o caminho que Josafá escolheu.


Primeiro, ele conclamou o povo a buscar a Deus. O rei fez esta oração transformadora de treze palavras: “Não sabemos o que fazer, mas os nossos olhos se voltam para ti”.


Nem todos temos o privilégio de chamar todo o nosso povo para buscar a Deus. Mas todo líder tem a oportunidade de buscar individualmente a ajuda do céu antes de levar ...

ERLC Shifts Staff as Three Longtime Leaders Move On

Russell Moore’s earliest appointees helped define a new era for the Southern Baptist Convention’s public policy arm.


Three top leaders who served alongside Russell Moore at the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) since the start of his presidency have left the Southern Baptist entity over the past six months.


Outgoing vice presidents Phillip Bethancourt and Daniel Darling and former director Andrew Walker embodied key emphases of the ERLC in recent years, as it developed new ways to equip churches to address racial justice, sexual abuse, and societal pressures around marriage and family.


The ERLC said in a news release that its mission continues uninterrupted, the staff changes providing an opportunity “to strengthen the work of the organization.”


Bethancourt—who stepped down from his position as executive vice president on April 26 to become pastor of Central Church in College Station, Texas—cited the trio’s work as evidence of “a generational shift on how Southern Baptists engage the public square.”


Days before Bethancourt’s departure, Darling, the ERLC vice president for communications, announced he too would be leaving, taking on a position as senior vice president for communications at the National Religious Broadcasters. Walker, former director of research and senior fellow in Christian ethics, departed October 31 to become a full-time ethics professor at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.


To fill their roles, the ERLC named former vice president for operations and chief of staff Daniel Patterson as the new executive vice president and spread Walker’s responsibilities among other staff. Darling’s replacement has not been announced.


Several additional staff shifts were announced last week, including the tapping of Travis Wussow, general counsel and vice president ...

This Pandemic Hits Americans Where We’re Spiritually Weak

Our cultural values are making us sad: money, mortality, and fear of missing out.


In a video chat last night, a friend admitted, “I’ve been crying a lot, and I’m not sure why.” COVID-19 has given us many reasons to weep. We’re out of our routines, the stock market has plunged, and we imagine millions dying. This virus and economic crisis punch us squarely where our spiritual armor is weakest: mortality, money, and our fear of missing out.


In 2 Corinthians 7, Paul distinguishes between two kinds of sorrow—a sorrow that “leads to death,” and a “godly sorrow.” The latter “brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret” (v. 10). Godly sorrow, he writes, produces “earnestness,” eagerness to repent, and a “longing” and “readiness to see justice done” (v. 11). The question the church faces now is which kind of sorrow COVID-19 will bring.


We are in the midst of the most widespread societal upheaval that many people alive today have ever experienced. Already our institutions, habits, relationships, and culture are shifting before our eyes. Frank M. Snowden, author of Epidemics and Society, shared with the New Yorker, “Epidemics are a category of disease that seem to hold up the mirror to human beings as to who we really are.” The question we are facing is not whether we will experience sorrow and change; the question is how. As biblical prophets walked with people through catastrophes, their advice was never to just endure until it ends. Instead they focused on proactively changing relationships with each other and with God.


As a cultural anthropologist who grew up in a middle-class white United States home and then lived for much of my adult life in Nicaragua, China, and South Africa, ...

The Storm That Won’t Get the Last Word

Ahmaud Arbery and tragedy in Brunswick, Georgia.


Coastal Georgia’s Perfect Storm


Hurricane season is especially busy in coastal Georgia. As a native of Brunswick, Georgia, I remember evacuating the city on several occasions with my family growing up. Residents of Brunswick, a small town of moss-laden, tree-lined streets normally spend this season watching Doppler radars. But for the past several months, they have watched police and news reports.


Like the rest of America, they were quarantined. But they became increasingly unsettled at stories of a young black man reportedly getting chased down and shot in his own neighborhood while jogging down the street. Little did Brunswick residents know, they were tracking the perfect storm.


The Fatal Run


Jogging isn’t supposed to get you killed. On February 23rd, Ahmaud Arbery became a heartbreaking, fatal exception as he jogged through his own neighborhood. Ahmaud Arbery was gunned down on a street intended to be a safe space for him. As he ran through the neighborhood that morning, he likely never thought he’d be fighting for his life in broad daylight.


The First Narrative


As a lawyer with close ties to Brunswick, I wanted to help. My brother, who coached Arbery in high school, reached out to me about the shooting and inquired about next steps. Together, we helped coordinate local efforts to galvanize Brunswick’s citizens to help discover the truth surrounding the shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery. And what we started to discover was troubling.


For starters, initial news reports highlighted Arbery’s past (unrelated) felony convictions, while subjectively reporting the facts covered in the incident report.


What if Martha Stewart, another felon, suffered the same fate? Would the story also discuss her record at ...
