I listened in to a conversation with a Baptist friend and a non Baptist evangelical friend recently. Both agree that the Lord gave us the great commission, and that in it we are told to go and make disciples. Here is where it got interesting: the non Baptist understood that to mean that we should not be conversion focused. Instead we should be focused on "getting past conversion quickly" and focus instead on "meat"--meaning systematic theology, the worship war, lifestyle issues, choice of church, etc. The Baptist understood it to mean more of a focus on evanglism, to be followed by encouraging the new believer to pray and study the Word. He explained by showing from Romans how in some matters every believer is to be persuaded in his own mind, with room for differences. He also showed where the Bereans did not just accept what was preached or taught, but checked it against scripture for themselves. He summed it up this way: "some want to disciple more than they want to see people saved. By that I mean they want people to become their clones. Instead, it seems to me a church really SHOULD be a loving community of the dreaded lone ranger Christians. That is, each person should be thinking, testing what is said and done against the scripture, and speaking up for what they believe scripture teaches instead of swallowing ANY party line, however good. I've been told that can cause the horrible effect of church hopping. Well, if you strongly believe your church is not teaching the truth, and if you have lovingly tried and cannot change it, you SHOULD hop. Otherwise your continued presence there may convince others you agree with the untruth." How do you see "making disciples?"
