An in-depth Study on how Postmodernism has affected the Christian Church in the United Kingdom
The Great Commission has often been interpreted as a directive to colonize people and subject them to our agenda. We interpret “make disciples of all nations” as make other parts of the world Christian the way we are Christian. We interpret “baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” as compelling them to repudiate any beliefs or practices that conflict with our understanding of Christianity. We interpret “teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you” as indoctrinate them with creeds and catechisms. As a postmodern pilgrim, I want to reframe the great commission as a great co-mission—a contemporary apprehension of the mission Dei that recognizes the mutual interdependence of so called senders and receivers.
