Greetings in Jesus' name.
Mercy and peace to you from God our Father.
I trust the battle progresses well on your front.
Welcome to JAC147 - the 147th edition
of Journal of Aggressive Christianity.
We have three guidelines for our contributions:
edifying, orthodox, and provocative.
And our slate of articles in JAC147 fits the standard.
We're grateful to each of our contributors for their
generous, challenging submissions.
Captain Erin Wikle (USW) kicks things
off with 'Theological Drift: A new reality in The Salvation
article was originally published in Volume 4 of The Western
Territorial Salvation Army Biblical, Theological, and
Steve Bussey (USE) follows with 'No
Orthodoxy?', a corrective to the very drift Wikle has
Captain Sam Nolan Jones (USC) learns
some healing lessons in Exodus 14, 15 through 'Bitter Waters'.
Major Terence Hale (C&B) helps all of
us, including those drifting without orthodoxy, to see a new
way, in 'Generous Eyes And New Wine: Perspective From Luke
Major Charles Roberts (USE) helps us
apply these new lenses and new ways of seeing in 'Ezekiel 37
And The Restoration Of Hope'.
Captain Erik Johansson (Latvia) helps
us to see the great commission from a new perspective in 'An
Exegetical Study Of Philippians 3:17–21.'
And we wrap up JAC147 with two pieces,
one aimed at Salvos - 'Salvationist Quadrilateral' and one
aimed at folk who aren't following Jesus - 'An Experiment For
Those Living Without God Today'.
As always, please read devotionally,
share liberally, and apply missionally.
If you finish up JAC147 before JAC148 is due out
(December 1 will feature a special feature, should Jesus
tarry), be sure to review the previous 146 issues.
Stay close to Jesus.
Keep fighting as warriors.
