    In Revelation 20, God will act precisely as one would expect if one reads His promises in a literal, normative understanding. Simply stated and among other reasons, Satan must be released so that God can demonstrate to Israel and to the world the veracity of His covenant promises, completely and precisely fulfilling them in minute and specific details—all the way to the arrival of the eternal state.

    Today churches and missionaries are being told that to imitate the ministry of Jesus they must add social justice to their understanding of the church’s mission. As pastors and missions committees embrace the idea that social action and gospel proclamation are “two wings of the same bird,” the kind of work that they send their missionaries to do changes, and this has a negative effect on world missions. This article highlights those negative effects in an African context, offers historical, practical, and biblical critiques of the trend, and redirects the church’s attention to understanding and fulfilling the Great Commission in the way the apostles did in Acts and the Epistles.

    Nondispensationalists often claim that Paul’s identification of believing Gentiles as “the seed of Abraham” in Galatians 3 means that the church is now “spiritual Israel,” and that a future fulfillment of national and political blessings to Israel are now excluded. Yet a proper understanding of the “seed” concept in Galatians and the rest of the Bible shows this is not the case. Jesus’ identification as the ultimate seed of Abraham is the basis for the fulfillment of all of the Abrahamic blessings, including national and political promises to Israel along with Gentile inclusion.

    The Zondervan general editor of the Counterpoint series, Stanley Gundry, together with his chosen editors, J. Merrick and Stephen Garrett, have produced a provocative book on Five Views on Biblical Inerrancy (2013). The five scholar participants are Albert Mohler, Peter Enns, Kevin Vanhoozer, Michael Bird, and John Franke. This Counterpoint series has produced many stimulating dialogues on various topics, and they no doubt intended to do the same on this controversial topic of inerrancy. However, there is a basic problem in the dialogue format as applied to biblical inerrancy.
