Doctor of Leadership in Global Perspectives: Crafting Ministry in an Interconnected World

religious competition

Written by: on August 27, 2012

This morning I woke up with thoughts regarding the ministry paradigm of “competition.”  Then, the panelists today mentioned that Korea is a “religiously competitive society”; not only within the Christian church (Protestants & Catholics) and between seminaries, but also between the variety of religious expressions within this country.  My thoughts are that we might consider the move from “competition” to “cooperation” as a Christian practice…from “winning” souls to “serving” souls.  It almost seems like it has turned into a game where the one with the most players and toys wins.  I need to do more research on this topic to see if this was a philosophy practiced by Jesus in his ministry..competition.  Do you feel like this is an issue for Christianity?
