Greetings in Jesus' name.
Welcome to JAC143!
This is the 143rd issue of Journal of Aggressive
parameters for JAC submissions are pretty broad: orthodox,
Orthodox: JAC is not interested in
stepping outside of the big tent of the theological
understandings of our tradition (though long-time readers
might fairly argue that we tend to lean toward one extreme in
that big tent).
Edifying: JAC aims to build up and not
to tear down.
Admittedly, as peace is sometimes achieved only on the other
side of conflict (e.g. kick the demon out and then experience
shalom), occasionally construction follows deconstruction.
Provocative: JAC deliberately prompts
strong reaction, whether to sacrificial love, to outrageous
mercy, to hardcore holiness... Otherwise, we might all just
continue to scroll through our social media feeds.
JAC143 clearly fits JAC parameters:
Founder Catherine Booth makes a pitch
for compassion in Sanctified Humanity.
Steve Bussey unapologetically assets
the unpopularity and indispensability of Blood And Fire.
Founder William Booth hammers the The
Great Object For Which God Made You.
Back to Steve Bussey, who elaborates on
The Spirit of Blood And Fire.
And next, with our most provocative
title of JAC143, The Baptism Of Soldiers - read it before you
go losing your sanctification.
Finally, Gospel Piggybacking is
something we've been thinking about for a long time.
And here's a first stab at it.
And that's JAC143.
It fittingly lines up behind the previous 142 issues of
JAC - all available for free in the archives (accessible at
the bottom of the front page) for your further and deeper
these articles help you and your comrades accelerate the
advance of the salvation war on your front.
