WELCOME TO THE

10minas Blog

How are we doing with the treasure entrusted to all who are born-again,
so that we might glorify God through holy living and fruitful service?

See Jesus' Parable of the Minas, Luke 19:12-27

What you'll find at the 10minas Blog...

Jesus spoke gently and kindly to children and to people in need, but He had high expectations and strong words for those who claim to be His disciples. You will be challenged to think critically about how seriously we are taking Him, and will be invited to engage with Him in the most exciting and rewarding adventure that you could imagine.

That something big is going on in our world is obvious to many. 10Minas is based on an assumption that, just as God orchestrated things in Rome and Israel, and had special people in certain places for specific reasons for the first coming of Jesus, so He is aligning things today for another great event.

Luke 19:12-27

#15 – Padlocked Bibles

Few of the people groups who need the scriptures in their heart language can speak English. Fortunately, there are usually some bilingual speakers among them who can translate from scriptures in their second language, and it becomes a “source text” for the new translation. (See Blog #14) However, a big obstacle is that most previous…

#14 – Opening the Gates

Every new Bible translation needs a source text, an accurate and easily understandable translation to work from. Nearly every people group in the world has some bilingual speakers in one of 44 known “Gateway Languages” (GLs).

#11 – Unmasking

*CLAC#2Have you felt the discomfort and the avoidance of eye contact when maskers and non-maskers meet? Sure you have!

#8 – A Light in the Darkness

Few would disagree that darkening clouds are gathering on the horizon. Consider the world conditions that capture our minds and emotions today. Terms like “humanitarian catastrophe” and “apocalyptic” are increasingly familiar. Even many who profess to be Christians are edgy with fear.  We tend to focus on this darkness because it threatens our perceived well-being.…
