The Idol’s Temple and the Insider Movement Paradigm

idoltempleI previously mentioned Kevin Higgins’ article on 1 Corinthians 8-10. My article on this passage has now been published in the latest edition of Global Missiology. You can read it online here. My article is not a response to Higgins per se, as I had planned to published the article before I saw Higgins’. However, I do interact with some of Higgins’ comments.

I think this is a critically important text for the Insider Movement paradigm and for cross-cultural missionaries in general. My article focuses not on the question of eating meat sacrificed to idols, but particularly on the question of whether followers of Jesus can legitimately continue to participate in explicitly religious activities that are part of non-Christian religions.

As always, comments and feedback are welcome.
