Series: Christian Vision Project Bible Study
An open-handed God empowers us to speak the gospel message in both truth and love.
How did the characteristics of hatred and fear come to be
associated with evangelical believers? Perhaps it can be traced back to our theology, Richard J. Mouw, President of Fuller Theological Seminary, suggests in a Christianity Today article. He writes, We all have to decide...whether we have a generous God or a stingy God...We evangelicals often give the impression that we have decided to be a spiritually stingy people. This study explores what it means to hold on to both truth and love in our interactions with the world.
