More Thoughts on Being “Incarnational”

Posted: July 26, 2011 in evangelicalism, missions, theology

Ed Stetzer recently finished his final post about the term “incarnational”:

Some will not like the use of the word, but I hope we all agree on what it is we are looking to see the church do: to be in the world, while remaining distinct, with the aim of fulfilling the Great Commission. The use of a word will not make the church more faithful, but neither does abandoning the word. What we need is clear theology giving birth to strong missiology. You see, I don’t think the term “incarnational mission” is likely to weaken the church’s christology. It’s already weak. If anything, emphasizing this idea gives us an opportunity to revisit both incarnation and incarnational.
