Essay – Discussion Question
Simple paragraph for a discussion post. From the book The Great Omission by Dallas Willard. Dallas Willard argues the following:First, there is absolutely nothing in what Jesus himself or his early followers taught that suggests you can decide just to enjoy forgiveness at Jesusâ€™s expense and have nothing more to do with him.Second, if we do not become his apprentices in Kingdom living, we remain locked in defeat so far as our moral intentions are concerned.Third, only avid discipleship to Christ through the Spirit brings the inward transformation of thought, feeling, and character that â€œcleans the inside of the cupâ€ (Matthew 23:25) and â€œmakes the tree goodâ€ (Matthew 12:33).Fourth, for the one who makes sure to walk as close to Jesus as possible there comes the reliable exercise of a power that is beyond them in dealing with the problems and evils that afflict earthly existence.For your discussion post, add a fifth argument to the question: â€œWhy should we bother with disciple-making?â€ Use your assessment of your own experiences and giftings as well as the understanding you have gained through your reading. Give examples from the Bible as well as your own personal observations and experiences. Bring out reasonable arguments, and give scholarly evidence and illustrations to support your assertions.Instructions: This activity will require the below input: 1.Initial Post: Each student will submit one primary post, which will respond to the discussion question for the week.
