Attractional vs. Incarnational

A popular post on my other blog is on attractional vs. incarnational ministry. Most simply, this is ministry which focuses on “come to us” vs. ministry which focuses on “go to them”. This debate tends to take place within a particular context, and the buzz-words are quite distinctive and unusual. A while back, I downloaded and read the five most viewed articles on attractional vs. incarnational ministry. Especially, in these articles, the proportionate emphasis on God was 1%, and on the Church 99%. Or if under "God" one includes Christ in His humanity, it was God 10%, and Church 90%. OBSERVATION: An alternative view is to see Christ Himself as both attraction and incarnation, but that is another story.
