Transforming a nation requires the proper or wise application of information which is the key to transformation. Another way to say it is:
Inform-ation + Applic-ation = Transform-ation of a N-ation
I + A = TON
The magnitude of transformation is determined by the amount of information applied wisely.
This is what I call the Transformation Equation.
The revelation is weighty and solving it is what turns Goat Nations into Sheep Nations (Matthew 25:32-33).
What have I observed?
For years the Church at large hosts conferences. We've hosted conferences. We've attended conferences. We've promoted conferences. I like conferences. However, here's the problem I observe.
People attend conference after conference. The goal is often to "train and equip the body of Christ." That is an excellent and noble goal. In my opinion. the majority of people attend the confences and don't understand the formula. Many assume or act like getting the information was the same thing as application. We all know, that's not true.
What's the problem?
