  • Evangelicals are fastest growing religion290 million (96% new Christians) – are from developing countries like Nigeria, Brazil, India and China. Global southThey are sending most missionariesFilipino Christian contract workers to be church planters. Chinese Back-to-Jerusalem Movement hopes to eventually send 100,000 Chinese missionaries. Koreans – 30,000 missionaries
  • Over 87% of all cross-cultural foreign missionaries minister among nominal Christian peoples.For every million unreached Muslims there are less than 3 missionariesFor every $1 of Christian giving to all causes how much goes to financing pioneer church planting among unreached peoples? 1 centNinety-five percent of graduates of evangelical seminaries, Bible colleges and similar institutions stay in the USA, which only has 5% of the world’s population.The American career missionary workforce is rapidly shrinking. In 1986 there were 69,000 career American missionaries, in 2006 that was down to 35,000; almost a 50% reduction in the last 20 years.One-tenth of one percent (ten cents per hundred dollars) of all Christian income went to global foreign missions, estimates David Barrett in the annual “Status of Global Mission” report for 2005.Today&apos;s Christians spend more money on dog food than missions.&quot;-Leonard Ravenhill
  • Acts 14:16-17 (New International Version)16In the past, he let all nations go their own way. 17Yet he has not left himself without testimony: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy.&quot;Ecclesiastes 3:11 (New International Version)11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.Psalm 19:1-4 1 The heavens declare the glory of God;         And the firmament shows His handiwork. 2 Day unto day utters speech,         And night unto night reveals knowledge. 3There is no speech nor language         Where their voice is not heard. 4 Their line[a] has gone out through all the earth,         And their words to the end of the world.          In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun,
  • Conscience:Proverbs 20:27 The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly. Romans 2:15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) 95% of languages have a word for the one godRedemptive analogiesExample parablesPeace childGeneral Rev. – Stage-setting/way-preparingMissions is prepared messengers bringing the gospel of special revelation to people prepared to receive it through the prior benign influence of General revelation.We have an ally!Corrupted rev. – false religions try to meet the need created by Gen revelation
  • An example of General and Special revelation:Karen peopleAdoniram Judson
  • Romans 3:10-12 (New King James Version)10 As it is written:       “ There is none righteous, no, not one;       11There is none who understands;      There is none who seeks after God.       12They have all turned aside;      They have together become unprofitable;      There is none who does good, no, not one.”Romans 10:9-10 (New King James Version)9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.Acts 4:12 (New King James Version)12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

    9. 9. Romans 1:18-24<br />18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. 24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. <br />
