Thanks for the challenge Bill.
What are your thoughts on his perspective?
I agree with him fully but I lean more toward's Platt's view on the Gospel and Great Commission.

I can be so missional that the mission because god... and that leads to a whole host of maladies that are playing out today. Just read Colossians 2 today. So rich. Our supreme passion can't be the Gospel message or disciplemaking as a method... the person of Jesus himself (Colossians 2). At the center of our lives is a person... not a purpose. Ironically, if we get the person right (Jesus), purpose, mission, method. message fall into place... eventually. What do you think? Perhaps now you can see what I think the video is rich for learning. If you have checkout Rethinking Radical—Part 1, there's link on this post to it. Gordon MacDonald's article on missionalism is very engaging and cogent.
