Protestant or Baptistic?

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

A very important event took place in the Vrije University, Amsterdam, on Thursday 16 April. To mark the Baptist Seminary in the Netherlands entering into partnership with the Vrije University Faculty of Theology and the 400th Anniversary of the formation of the first Baptist Church in 1609 in Amsterdam (English-speaking General Baptists), a day symposium was held at the University to look at “Doing Theology in a Baptist Way”. IBTS Pro-Rector Dr Parush R Parushev delivered the keynote address to a capacity crowd of over 100 people drawn from the University, other theological institutions in the Netherlands and many from the Dutch Baptist family. Parush, as we would expect, delivered a tour de force expounding the concept of the gathering, intentional, convictional, baptistic communities of believers focused on primary theology. He explained this fourth stream of Christian life (the other three being Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant) building on earlier work by Bishop Lesslie Newbigin about the “pneumatic” family of Christian communities, sometimes also known as the “believers’ church” stream or as Jim McClendon describes us “Baptists with a small b”. taking viagra woman Viagra Secondary Pulmonary Hypertension Baby cheap gerneric viagra

At last – new way of preparing for ministry!

Friday, April 24th, 2009

Dmitriy, our Ukrainian student, brought my attention to a computer game which apparently has been around for a while. That’s it – now I know what to do. Just look at the features of MegaChurch:

Pastor a simulated church and create your own Christian empire

Build a church from the ground up

Hire and fire staff

Deal with idiots, naive volunteers, and denominational egos

Attract fickle unchurched people with Bingo, revival meetings or fasting–it is all up to you!

Select a pre-loaded community

Xurban or suburban church plant (for those who want it easy or just starting out)

Or pastor an inner-city, multi-ethnic 80 year old church with 50 members and $1 million mortgage debt (for those who really want a challenge)

Choose a denomination (Lutheran, Catholic, Baptist, Pentecostal plus many more obscure factions)

Or load a brand new emergent plug-in

Take weekly offerings and go over budget

Start your own radio or cable-access show

Attend the latest conference to hone your skills

Implement the latest ministry fad

Review weekly attendance and giving records

Earn points with God by winning souls for Christ

With network play enabled, you can steal members from other churches and earn points just like you saved them yourself.

Denominations and Bible colleges use it to prepare potential church planters or associate pastors. It is better than an internship!

[Sigh] Yeah… All that time wasted on Practice of Ministry module…
