Contact Does Not Equal Contamination
Are Jesus followers to withdraw and separate themselves from culture and the world? This question is often discussed and many struggle with the tension of the thin line between being in the world, but not of the world.
Below Michael Frost shares his view on the North American churches use of resources and about the skewed theological framework around being separate from the world.
One good quote to ponder is, “Missional effectiveness is directly proportional to your relational capacity. If you have high relational capacity with the world — high missional effectiveness. If you have limited relational capacity…you have limited missional effectiveness. ”
Concept to commit to memory: contact does not equal contamination.
