Why Evangelicals Need a Code of Ethics for Mission

2011
When people today see on TV that some religious groups will use any means to further their cause, true Christians have to state what means they will never use; and if some Christians use inappropriate means, they should receive the disapproval of other Christians on the basis of a public code of ethics. The motto WWJD (“What would Jesus do?”), popular among some teenagers, has to guide us especially when we fulfill Jesus’ Great Commission.

O Testemunho Cristão em um Mundo Multi-Religioso

2011
A missão pertence à essência da igreja. A proclamação da palavra de Deus e o testemunho de sua palavra são essenciais para todo cristão. Ao mesmo tempo, é necessário fazê-lo a partir dos princípios do evangelho, com respeito e amor pleno para com todos os seres humanos. Cientes das tensões entre pessoas e comunidades de diferentes convicções religiosas e das variadas interpretações do testemunho cristão, o Pontifício Conselho para o Diálogo Inter-Religioso (PCDI), o Conselho Mundial de Igrejas (CMI) e, a convite do CMI, a Aliança Evangélica Mundial (AEM), se encontraram ao longo de um período de 5 anos para refletir e produzir este documento com o objetivo de estabelecer uma série de recomendações de conduta para o testemunho cristão ao redor do mundo. Este documento não tem a intenção de ser uma declaração teológica sobre missões, mas sim de abordar problemas práticos associados ao testemunho cristão em um mundo multi-religioso. O propósito deste documento é de encorajar igrejas, conselhos de igrejas e agências de missões para refletir sobre suas práticas atuais e usar as recomendações deste documento para preparar, onde forem apropriadas, as suas próprias diretrizes para seu testemunho e missão entre pessoas de diferentes religiões e entre aqueles que não professam nenhuma religião em particular. Espera-se que os cristãos ao redor do mundo estudem este documento à luz de suas próprias práticas ao testemunharem sua fé em Cristo, tanto por palavras como por ações.

L’Évangile et la Culture de Honte en Afrique Occidentale

2003
Pendant dix ans de service missionnaire en République de Guinée en Afrique Occidentale, beaucoup de questions surgies du travail missionnaire sont restées sans réponses. C’est seulement des études missiologiques approfondies qui ont pu fournir des réponses, ce qui a conduit à ce manuel pour missionnaires. La conscience axée sur la honte y a été reconnue comme élément fondamental de la culture Ouest-Africaine imprégnée par l’animisme et l’islam populaire. Le but de ce manuel est de faciliter l’introduction aux missionnaires en Guinée, en Afrique Occidentale et dans d’autres cultures de honte. Cette version française est une édition légèrement révisée de l’original allemand de l’année 1997.

Shame and Guilt

2003
Eighteen years of missionary service in Guinea, West Africa, and missiological studies led the author to the conclusion that shame and guilt are fundamental elements for the understanding of missions. Traditionally, missionaries with guilt-oriented met shame-oriented indigenous people. The conscience orientation influences personality and culture, and consequently also theology and missions. It influences all spheres of private and public life. Shame and guilt-oriented people have different concepts of sin, salvation and forgiveness. They have different needs in relation to community life. They communicate differently. Newly, these differences occur not only between missionaries and indigenous people, but also between the older and younger generation in Europe and North America.
