Welcome

Steef and Tineke lived in South Africa with their four children for 8 years. In 2006 they came back as a family, but Steef kept on traveling to teach his courses on mission awareness throughout Africa. Now that the children are all out of the house and having families of their own, they have decided to work in missions together again.

On this website you can read about their adventures, news when traveling as a blog, and Steef's articles on Bible based missiology. 

May you be blessed as you read on...

Dear friends,
 
Our love and greetings to you. Three weeks ago we arrived in South Africa. It is Springtime! We are enjoying the sunny weather, the flowers and the masked weavers that build their nests right before our window...  Just praying for rain... weird thing to pray for rain, as Dutch people have learned to dislike the rain, because we usually have too much of it... but here nature is crying out for some water, as are the farmers.

Article 2020-08 Converts or Disciples?

Chapter 63:

Introduction

Sects with anti-Christian teaching seek to creep into the church, but members must know that whoever continues to sin knowingly and willfully may lose his salvation. Therefore, Jesus never told us to make converts, but disciples of all nations. Some mission fields show that un-discipled converts may resist Christian living more than pagans do. Finally, Paul says that there are no ‘elite Christians’: all are made perfect in Christ.

Scripture reference

We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ … My purpose is … that they may have the full riches of complete understanding … in order that they may know … Christ in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Col. 1:28; 2:2,3)

The story

In his letter to the Colossians, Paul combats the teaching of ‘gnosticism’: a mixture of old paganism and Jewish sectarism with a Christian veneer. It taught that knowledge, superior to that of other believers, could be received through revelation, when one lived frugally, sticking to the law and certain days of celebration. Its general thought was that evil dwelt only in the body, not in the spirit, and that the body could sin without affecting the spirit. In fact, the more one sinned, the more one experienced grace and forgiveness.
