False Dichotomies in Missions

6a00e54fc7cbdb8834011571e5e041970b-120wiChristopher J.H. Wright, an Old Testament Scholar, Theologian and Missiologist just finished a two part post on false dichotomies in missions. He has some awesome thoughts that we urgently need to hear and live out as the Church. He finishes the posts with this comment:

If we are to introduce Christ to the world we must look like the Christ we represent. So the call for integrity, Christlikeness, unity, etc., within the church, as part of a more robust understanding of what the church is meant to be, is an essential part of our missional task.
