If you only had 90 minutes once a week for 12 weeks,what would you teach a brand new Christian?
the Spiritual Disciplines:
1. Worship - of God with whole being
2. Ministry - to Others
3. Evangelism - sharing the Gospel/make disciples
4. Fellowship - in local church body
5. Education - teaching all things (example and doctrinal basis)
That is the basis of our home bible studies and of our new member program.
Teach a new christian? humm.. I think I would be straigtening out any misconceptions he had, and answering questions for a while ... Then I would begin on John -nods-
Didn't know you were PDC advocate!
Isn't that what Rick Warren stresses?
Been teaching that for years, before there WAS a Saddleback church! Had it printed on the front of our church bulletins back in the 70's.
BTW, be careful what you imply about PDL et al. I get a little defensive.
I would do like Jesus did by taking them with me to do ministry and teaching them while we do ministry.
I would stress the importance of developing a personal relationship with the Lord thru' prayer and reading the Word, a daily quiet time, and to never be afraid to ask questions.
