Jude 1:22 O U T REACH

-MEET UP @ 1PM @ SOUTH SHORE CHURCH 402 E. 9TH ST.

THE ACTUAL HYMN SING OF HEALING WITH BEGIN AT 3PM. IT IS MOST LIKLEY THE MOST OPPORTUNE TIME TO BE THERE AROUND 2PM
-THEME OF EVENT:
WHILE TEACHING THROUGH THE EPISTLE OF JUDE IN A 7 PART SERIES ON SUNDAYS AT OUR CHURCH, WE WERE ALSO HIGHLIGHTING DIFFERENT FIGURES OF THE REFORMATION AS A CONCRETE EXAMPLE OF CONTENDING FOR THE FAITH.
JOHN WYCLIFFE, JAN HUSS, MARTIN LUTHER, 5 POWERFUL WOMEN OF REFORMATION ...
WE CAME ACROSS AN ARTICLE IN OUR LOCAL NEWS PAPER
WE NATURALLY BECAME CONCERNED AND WANTED TO RESPOND.

2. AN EXPLANATION OF BIBLICAL UNITY AND BIBLICAL DIVISION
3. AN ATTEMPT TO DIVIDE THIS HOUSE OF CONFUSION
- OUR METHODS OF COMMUNICATION

2. LOVE- "IF WE LACK THIS, WE ARE JUST NOISE"
3. LIFTING UP OUR VOICE "OPEN AIR PREACHING"
4. SPEAKING RESPECTFULLY TO THOSE WHO WILL LISTEN
5 WRITINGS- TRACTS, FLYERS
6. T-SHIRT WITH "STILL PROTESTING" ON THEM

THOUGHTS ON LITERATURE BEING CREATED
TRACT IDEA / STRATEGY #1
If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
THIS IS OUR ATTEMPT TO DISRUPT THE FALSE KUMBAYA SPIRIT.
THE MAIN COMMONALITY THESE INDIVIDUALS HAVE IS SINGING. THE HAVE SADLY ALLOWED THIS UNITY IN ONE AREA OF LIFE TO OVERRIDE MANY OTHERS, CREATING A GREAT DECEPTION. THESE CHURCHES ARE SEVERELY DIVIDED ON MANY ESSENTIAL THEOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL ISSUES.
WE WANT TO CALL THESE TO ATTENTION IN SKILLFUL WAYS AS THEY HEAD INTO THE EVENT.
THEOLOGICAL: THE MAIN ISSUE WE WILL HIGHLIGHT IS THE WAY SALVATION IS GRANTED..
SOLA VS. SOLA
SOCIAL: CHILD SACRIFICE, HOMOSEXUALITY, SODOMY, POLITICS .....
IF YOU HAVE A GOOD HANDLE ON ANY OF THESE, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO BE SKILLFUL AT PRESENTING THESE ISSUES WITH SIGNS,LITERATURE,WORDS
TRACT IDEA / STRATEGY #2
WE WILL DEFINITELY BE ACCUSED OF BEING MEAN SPIRITED AND DIVISIVE PEOPLE. WE WILL BE QUESTIONED ABOUT PROTESTING A "HEALING" OR "FUNDRAISING EVENT." WE WILL BE DISMISSED BECAUSE THE NATURE OF MAN IS TO SEE UNITY AS GOOD AND HOLY AND DIVISION AS EVIL AND WRONG.
WE ARE PRODUCING A TRACT USING AS KEY VERSE AND PASSAGE
Matthew 10:34 “Don’t think that I came to send peace on the earth. I didn’t come to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I came to set a man at odds against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. 36 A man’s foes will be those of his own household.✡ 37 He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he who loves son or daughter more than me isn’t worthy of me. 38 He who doesn’t take his cross and follow after me, isn’t worthy of me
WE WILL USE THE 2 FAMOUS MARTIN LUTHERS TO HIGHLIGHT UNITY AND DIVISION
ONE TOOK A STAND AND ONE HAD A DREAM AGAINST EVIL. HOWEVER BOTH DIVIDED AND BOTH UNITED.
HOW DO WE KNOW WHEN TO STAND AND WHEN TO DREAM?
SIMPLY PUT WE DIVIDE FROM THINGS THAT ARE EVIL
WE UNITE IN MATTERS OF GOOD
TWO SIDES OF THE SAME COIN:
WE WILL NEVER STAND,SING OR DREAM WITH: UNREPENTANT CHILD SACRIFICERS, ADULTERERS, UNBELIEVERS, OR UNREPENTANT CATHOLICS.
WE WILL STAND, DREAM AND SING WITH:
ABOLITIONISTS, ANABAPTISTS AND ALL MANNER OF HOLY MEN
TRACT IDEA / STRATEGY #2
