In This Issue

God's Spirit lays different emphases on His Church in different generations. One of the themes common today is Spiritual Warfare. Another is Unity.

The AD2000 Conference held in Chungli in February was a turning point for the Church in Taiwan. One theme that keptre-appearing throughout the whole conference was that of "unity"- especially between Mandarin- and Taiwanese-speaking Christians. The call of speaker after speaker was to unite together for the sake of the evangelization of Taiwan -2,000,000 by 2000!

In This Issue

In Taiwan we live and work in a highly pluralistic environment, socially, but especially religiously - at least it appears that way on the surface. Daily our senses are bombarded by the sights, sounds and smells of the overtly public, often pompous and lavish Taiwanese religious rituals and practices, not to mention the feeling that spiritual activity is also taking place in the unseen realm. In addition to the traditional and folk religion, new or revived religious sects continue to emerge, not to mention the plethora of Christian denominations and "imported" religious movements (cults) from Western or other Asian countries.

Even though the Taiwanese religious context manifests a variety of beliefs and expressions, they pose a monolithic challenge to acceptance of the Gospel. From peasant to premier, Taiwanese folkreligions, beliefs, and customs pervade all aspects of people's lives. Thisentrenchment of religious culture is not easily penetrated by the Christian message. The struggle between Baal and Yahweh (OT), God and Satan (NT), continues its engagement. But it is not a battle between equals. God is more powerful than the gods of Taiwan, and He will triumph in theend. He loves Taiwan and desires to see its people reconciled to Himself.
