    Unreached people groups and the absolute unstoppable sovereign God make for a fun can of worms ……… 🙂 Will God be wringing His hands in frustration and depression for all eternity because He tried so hard to reach these folks and couldn’t make it happen?

    • mtsweat says:

      No, no. I am confident God will not be doing that, Hank. But I fear we may be shaking in our boots when we give an account for our apathetic effort to reach them… after all, He commanded we do it. Are we?

      • Hank says:

        I agree my friend, we are called to reach and share. We are called to share God’s heart in this endeavor. But I do guarantee, that God will reach all those whom He has chosen to reach and there will be none lost that He intended to save. You know I was just having a little fun. History has proven that Calvinists have been some of the most ardent and passionate pursuers of the lost in the church. Perfect example? Charles H. Spurgeon.

          Hey brother. and absolutely… sorry if I seemed to imply something by my response. I didn’t. You know I firmly insist that God will not be thwarted in His plan and work. I am, however, concerned that we are dropping the ball on our end. Much of my reading of late has consisted of people ranging from Calvin himself and further back to the Church Fathers. In all of these writings there is a sense of urgency that I fail to see in my own life, and most others. My recent posts about mission work is mostly driven by the fact that the rare individuals I see with this sense of urgency are missionaries. They desperately desire to go with the gospel, but can’t get funded. Have we become too materialistic? I think that’s what I’m struggling with. Thanks for following up brother… speaking of brothers, I seen yours today. It sounds like they really appreciate their new pastor. Blessings, Hank and Dawn (tell her the next time crickets are on the menu, call us)

    We ALL need to be soul-warriors for Christ! I have been reaching people with my blogsite,with accompany tweets and emails for one-on-one spiritual talks, in many of these countries and on all the continents. God is blessing my allegorical method of reaching into the center of people’s souls, bypassing the so-called higher cognitive processes. I ofcourse support my own church’s missionary work and the missionary work of another nearby denomination. I also directly sponsor Christian medical professionals who combine medical assistance with evangelism and Bible studies in other countries. I support my local Gideon chapters. I pray several times a day for all these endeavors–and for those for which you have provided links in your previous post. But once again, I will tell you: the United States of American is the most heathenish in the way it gives lip service to Christianity. It sems we expect our policitcal leaders to carry the whole load and act as our surrogates at the Pearly Gates. Come on, folks: shine your light WHERE YOU ARE RIGHT NOW!!!!!!! Many of the minority ethnic group members you encounter on a weekly or daily basis have closed family members living in those very countries your map highlights. What will those living here who encounter you tell their family members “back home”?
