Open Source Mission
Open Source Mission is a new ministry that aims to apply the collaboration tools of the 21st-century to the challenges currently facing the global church.(Gospel Translations is "a project to make biblical books and articles freely accessible in as many languages as possible.")
Our first project is a wiki called GospelTranslations.org, which is our humble contribution toward the theological equipping of Christians around the world.
Apologetics on the Mission Field
Roger Overton highlights the influence that cults are having around the world. He quotes Paul Carden who writes:
Around the world, cults and controversial new religions are multiplying as they gain cross-cultural sophistication, increase their missionary forces, and step up their translation capabilities. They appear at disaster sites to distribute relief supplies and counsel refugees, and they're going toe-to-toe with evangelical missionaries in the most unexpected places. Their proliferation points to the need for greater awareness among missions strategists and a wider, more effective response on the field."Roger highlights the Africa Center for Apologetics Research as one attempt to address this need.
