    Save Souls, Not Cultures This has been the motto of twentieth century evangelism Having encountered heavy resistance to the prophet s message of comprehensive revival and restoration in history, modern evangelical Christianity has abandoned the prophets Unlike Jonah, who grew weary of life in the belly of a whale, modern evangelicalism has not only grown accustomed to Save Souls, Not Cultures This has been the motto of twentieth century evangelism Having encountered heavy resistance to the prophet s message of comprehensive revival and restoration in history, modern evangelical Christianity has abandoned the prophets Unlike Jonah, who grew weary of life in the belly of a whale, modern evangelicalism has not only grown accustomed to the Church s cultural irrelevance today, it has actually proclaimed this pathetic condition as God s plan for the Church Age But is it Not according to Jesus instructions to His Church the discipline putting under God s discipline of all nations.Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world Amen Matthew 28 19 20.Paul makes it clear that the progressive expansion of Jesus kingdom in history will continue until all things are under His dominion, on earth, before He returns physically to judge the world For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death I Corinthians 15 25 26 This was David s message, too The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion rule thou in the midst of thine enemies Psalm 110 1 2 In The Greatness of the Great Commission, Rev Kenneth L Gentry, Jr presents a comprehensive biblical case for God s comprehensive salvation and restoration in history Sin is comprehensive God s healing grace is no less comprehensive Whenever sin reigns today, there God speaks to sinful man and offers a way of escape There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it I Corinthians 10 13 To argue that the Great Commission does not include every aspect of today s cultures all of Satan s kingdom is to argue that there is no way of escape in many areas of life.The war between God s kingdom civilization on earth and Satan s kingdom civilization on earth is total, encompassing every aspect of life The Great Commission calls the Church in this Church Age to make a full scale attack on modern humanist civilization, but always in terms of a positive message and practical program a better way of life in every area of life This is the greatness of the Great Commission It must not be narrowed to exclude culture from God s special grace.

    1. This book unpacks the Great Commission (Matt. 28:16-20), showing its comprehensive nature.

We are to pray and then work.My only complaint was the writing style felt overly formal and like reading a logic textbook. Scripture is story and history, and although I can appreciate the serious scholarly approach he had to the subject, I had to slog t [...]

    5. A helpful dose of "cultural mandate" thinking. Though I don't agree with Gentry on all points, this book is certainly a helpful anomaly amongst all the popular Evangelical books being written regarding the commission of the Christian. (Full book review will be coming soon)
