4) Thinking Like Missionaries | LGBT+ History
Best practice missiology never carves out a people group and declares those individuals unworthy of Christ. Jesus spent much of his time going to people who were propelled away from faith by the Pharisees. He had a commitment of leaving "the 99" to rescue "the 1s" in our world. In the process, he was called heretic and demonic for daring to love, care for, protect, and invite unholy people to come towards God. The most effective missionaries lay down their life for marginalized people; rather than mocking them or trying to prove why they are not a valid people group. Doesn't God want to reach all the peoples in our world? In the next three segments, we will aim to think like missionaries. To reach people, we must understand them. We must learn about them. We must earn some kind of trust credential when seeking to reach highly marginalized people. It begins with having a "listener-learner" posture rather than our usual "teacher-teller" posture. We will begin by learning about a few critical moments in LGBT+ history.
