Flag planting…for all the wrong reasons
David Rogers, whom I have come to highly value and appreciate, has recently posted some translated comments by Latin American missionary, Antonio Peralta. The most recent post that he offered deals with the topic of denominational loyalty and pride superceding the need for us to evangelize the lost. It is a strong portion of Peralta's message. Included in the message is the following quote which I found particularly compelling. Peralta said,
Neither our denominations nor our mission agency will go to heaven, only people redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.
So, in light of Peralta's statement, what does that mean for those of us who are in a denomination? What implications would you assume that this ideaology has to do with our efforts as gospel speakers? I would really appreciate hearing your thoughts!
