Transcript of Justice and Evangelism

Jesus & Justice
Revelation 11 Vision
Justice Invitationals
The gospel of Jesus Christ and the manifestation of his presence in the “Kingdom of God” are inseparable realities
Over the last 7 years, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship has seen a sustained increase in students & faculty coming to faith. We have been on campus since 1937 and have never seen as many conversions as we are seeing today.
Particularly when we seek to understand the emerging role the global church plays in areas of justice, we need to make sure our worldview is cohesive, comprehensive, and grounded in Scripture.
“The vision of secular activism is reform but the vision of Christian mission is resurrection. In light of the eschaton we raise the bar from reform to renewal.”
Rachel Shain
Only 20% of the high school students who grow up in churches will still be actively involved in the Christian faith at the age of 30.
“Social engagement and evangelism are not the gospel, they are how the gospel moves forward.” -Rick Richardson
“Could the global church say, ‘For Christ’s sake, we Christians care about all suffering, especially eternal suffering. If we resist this, we have either a defective view of hell or a defective heart."
-John Piper, Cape Town/Lausanne 2010
Enduring temporal problems are complex and stand in the way of the nations embracing Jesus Christ.
In this emerging generation, unless Christ is seen first as globally relevant, He will not be believed to be personally relevant.
Globally Conscious
I created Justice Invitationals to address the growing problem of the commercial sexual exploitation of children (sexual slavery) and to help people see how Christ not only provides hope for our souls but also can bring real, lasting transformation to 'the least of these' who suffer as modern-day slaves!
The primary obstacle in the Church to effectively proclaiming the gospel and demonstrating the Kingdom simultaneously is lack of vision & creativity.
We cannot afford to relegate proclamation evangelism to the realm of mere religious conservatism, it must be integrated in a holistic way into the Church's larger evangelization work.
Through Justice Invitationals, InterVarsity has helped to change laws, prosecute perpetrators, raise money and awareness and raise up "world changers!"
Gary A. Haugen
As Christians, we must always care both for the temporal needs of the world and the eschatological needs of the nations.
Civically Active
"Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying,
'The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord
and of his Messiah,[d]
and he will reign forever and ever.'" (Rev. 11:15, NRSV)

“For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake.” (I Thess. 1:4-5, NIV)

John 3: Urbana 2009 Platform Message
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
