The Radicals: This Generation, This World, This Time

"The Radicals: This Generation, This World, This Time" - Part 6

Speaker

Dwight K. Nelson

Since 1983, Dwight Nelson has served as lead pastor of the Pioneer Memorial Church on the campus of Andrews University. He preaches on the “New Perceptions” telecast, teaches at the theological seminary and has written some books, including The Chosen. He and his wife, Karen, are blessed with two married children and 2 granddaughters.

“Two billion people today have no access to anyone who can tell them about Jesus. Only one in every thirty missionaries work among these two billion. For every $100 in the offering plate, only one penny goes to this work.” Are there any radicals out there who want to see this change? And would even be willing to help make it happen? But where would you even start?

More In This Series

01/08/2011
The life of Radical 1 reveals why there are so few read radicals in the world and the church today, and why it’s so important that there be many.
01/15/2011
Radical 2 had his world by the tail. But that was before the radical reversal, which left him a great debtor. Therein lies the timeless moral of his story.
01/22/2011
What of the billions who have not yet heard the gospel? What hope do they have to be saved? The answer—which comes as a surprise, even an offense, to many—lies embedded in the thirteenth question, revealing God’s heart while affirming our call.
02/12/2011
Stories of organ transplants abound and have resulted in the saving of many lives. Organ donors are either deceased or have an extra organ they can live without. But who ever heard of a live donor of a healthy heart: the survival rate for the donor is zero! Which makes this story so compelling.
02/26/2011
“These are two radically different questions. ‘What can we spare?’ and ‘What will it take?’” Welcome to the radical query, the radical command, the radical invitation.

Support SDA Church Members in Madagascar

Andrews University is helping to support the SDA church members in southwest Madagascar who are currently experiencing severe drought and famine in addition to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, you can provide food to those in desperate need.

We have been told that some members eat mud, roots, and leaves to try and remove hunger cramps. As a member of the Adventist family, you can feed a family of four for one month for $50, providing vital rice, beans, oil, and other essential food. The neediness of these families is serious. There are eleven churches scattered around the affected area with 494 families and over 1,691 individuals. Even though some food aid was collected and distributed in November 2020, the drought has continued, and that food is now used up.
