Fascist liberalism and a feudal-style corporatism are destroying western civilisation. The western Church is the institution best equipped to stem the tide.
Three critical challenges (‘The Problem’) have to be confronted.
Twelve (12) major reforms are needed if the West is to survive. A western Church employing the 'Next Generation Church' (NGC) strategy can leverage off The Problem and the 12 Reforms to make itself much stronger and spark interest in doing what must be done to restore the West. The NGC strategy is a four-stage process:
Stage one: Confront The Problem in the public square by engaging communities with the 12 Reforms and their biblical antecedents – the five core Christian world view principles. Do this to enlarge the pool of those interested in Christianity.
Stage two: Take full advantage of the increased interest in Christianity to transition conversations on today’s public issues to the 12 Reforms.
Stage three: Transition to the core Judeo-Christian principles (the five core CWV principles) behind the 12 Reforms. Make it clear these principles are the West’s founding values, the main themes running through the Bible and the basis for the 12 Reforms.
Stage four: Transition to the gospel by explaining Christianity can change lives just as effectively as it can transform society. If it can frame transformative responses to the West’s major problems it can also provide answers to the crucial questions in people’s lives.
