Mailbag: Neglecting the Unreached and Fighting Heresy

In this episode, we tackle two pivotal topics at the heart of global missions. We begin by responding to one friendly criticism and exploring the nuanced definition of “reached,” emphasizing the importance of not just making contact with the unreached but ensuring every nation, tribe, and people group has a fully mature body of believers. Following this, we delve into the pressing issue of maintaining doctrinal integrity in mission fields, particularly in regions like the Middle East where there is often a disconnect from church history. We discuss the risks of neglecting historic Christian creeds to prevent the spread of theological errors in cross-cultural missions.
