Tema-tema yang beragam ini memberi ruang bagi pem-baca dari berbagai bidang minat atau keahlian. Karena STT Bethel Indo-nesia ada di dalam tradisi gereja pen-takostal, maka isu komsel (komunitas sel) yang banyak dipraktekkan di gereja-gereja aliran pentakostal dapat menjadi refrensi untuk memajukan komsel.</p> en-US <p>Authors who publish with this journal agree to the following terms:</p> <ol type="a"> <li class="show">Authors retain copyright and grant the journal right of first publication with the work simultaneously licensed under a <a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/" target="_new">Creative Commons Attribution License</a> that allows others to share the work with an acknowledgement of the work's authorship and initial publication in this journal.</li> <li class="show">Authors are able to enter into separate, additional contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository or publish it in a book), with an acknowledgement of its initial publication in this journal.</li> <li class="show">Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) prior to and during the submission process, as it can lead to productive exchanges, as well as earlier and greater citation of published work (See <a href="http://opcit.eprints.org/oacitation-biblio.html" target="_new">The Effect of Open Access</a>).</li> </ol> priskilla.isaak@sttbi.ac.id (Priskila Issak Benyamin) anggimaringan.mia2@gmail.com (Anggi Maringan Hasiholan) Wed, 31 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0000 OJS http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/tech/rss 60 PENDEKATAN PENGINJILAN TERHADAP PEKERJA SEKS KOMERSIL http://sttbi.ac.id/journal/index.php/diegesis/article/view/252 <p>Commercial sex work is one of the jobs that is looked down upon in society at large. This is because the work is an immoral act that harms society. However, the gospel must still be preached to this group, because the gospel is for all mankind. The purpose of this study is to explore evangelistic approaches and methods that are relevant to commercial sex workers in Indonesia. Qualitative methods are used in working on this journal. Several journals, books and Bible verses were collected and compared to answer the problem formulation in this journal, namely the Bible approach to commercial sex. This journal shows the lives of commercial sex workers and how to approach the gospel to their communities, which ultimately results in three effective gospel approach strategies in reaching the commercial sex worker community.</p> Hosana Obidiance Salu Lobo, Yanto Paulus Hermanto, Joko Prihanto Copyright (c) 2022 Diegesis : Jurnal Teologi https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://sttbi.ac.id/journal/index.php/diegesis/article/view/252 Wed, 31 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0000 SPIRITUALITAS DOA MENURUT ST AFRAHAT DAN IMPLIKASINYA BAGI KEDEWASAAN JEMAAT http://sttbi.ac.id/journal/index.php/diegesis/article/view/256 <p>Prayer is a spirituality that is closely related to the Christian life. All age categories are taught the spirituality of prayer. However, this spirituality is starting to be seen as ancient and abandoned by Christians, especially in the postmodern era. Therefore, it is necessary to internalize the spirituality of prayer with different approaches and sources. This study aims to find the meaning of being watchful in prayer according to the church fathers in the book of St Afrahat. The research method used is descriptive qualitative with data collection techniques through library research texts or writings from the Church Fathers that have been written in St Afrahat's book. The results of the study stated that being on guard in prayer is one of the processes so that we do not fall into worldly sins, by being vigilant in prayer is one of the purification of ourselves so as not to be tempted by the worldly.</p> Dani Simarmata Copyright (c) 2022 Diegesis : Jurnal Teologi https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://sttbi.ac.id/journal/index.php/diegesis/article/view/256 Wed, 31 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0000 EKOLOGIS DI TENGAH PANDEMI COVID-19: PENCEMARAN LINGKUNGAN SEBAGAI SUATU MASALAH EKOLOGIS DI MASA PANDEMI COVID-19 http://sttbi.ac.id/journal/index.php/diegesis/article/view/248 <p>This study aims to explain one of the ecological problems during the Covid-19 pandemic, environmental pollution. This paper was studied using a descriptive qualitative research method based on facts and experiences. This paper shows that environmental pollution in the past has become one of the ecological problems. This is evidenced by paying attention to the surrounding environment where waste due to the pandemic in the form of disposable masks and other health waste that cannot be adequately managed and is disposed of carelessly, causing environmental pollution which has an impact on environmental sustainability and cleanliness and can even lead to natural disasters. Therefore, human ecological awareness is needed at this time, especially in the church, to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic does not lead to the birth of a new ecological problem, namely environmental pollution, but rather a moment of reflection to rebuild a relationship with God through conscious actions of duties and responsibilities toward nature, namely maintaining, managing and working following the mandate given by God.</p> Restifani Cahyami Rosmita Copyright (c) 2022 Diegesis : Jurnal Teologi https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://sttbi.ac.id/journal/index.php/diegesis/article/view/248 Wed, 31 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0000 TEOLOGI TUBUH: MAKNA MATA SEBAGAI PELITA TUBUH MENURUT INJIL LUKAS 11:34 DAN BAPA GEREJA PHILOKALIA http://sttbi.ac.id/journal/index.php/diegesis/article/view/246 <p>Dalam Lukas 11:34, Yesus menyebut “Mata adalah pelita tubuh.” Mata yang baik memberikan terang pada tubuh yang barasal dari mata hati sedangkan mata yang jahat menghasilkan kegelapan. Mata yang baik akan menghasilkan terang karena dari mata turun ke hati dan akan membuahi dosa. Pastikan yang kita kerjakan segala sesuatunya hanya yang kudus, berkenan di hadapan Tuhan, lakukan kebaikan terhadap semua orang dan tetap teguh pada iman yang memberikan keselamatan kepada kita. Pimpinlah mereka yang masih terhilang dengan kasih Tuhan dan jagalah hati dan diri kita sendiri agar kita tidak jatuh ke dalam dosa. Tunjukkan karakter yang baik supaya menjadi teladan bagi mereka dan kasihilah mereka seperti Tuhan Yesus Kristus mengasihi semua umatNya. Beritakanlah injil dan ajarlah mereka menyelaraskan hidup sesuai firman Tuhan, supaya mereka percaya dan diselamatkan. Setiap orang percaya harus memiliki sikap hati yang baik dan menjadi berkat bagi sesama.</p> Nesti Gulo Copyright (c) 2022 Diegesis : Jurnal Teologi https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://sttbi.ac.id/journal/index.php/diegesis/article/view/246 Wed, 31 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0000 PENGINJILAN YANG DIBERDAYAKAN: NUBUATAN YOEL MENGENAI ERA PENCURAHAN ROH KUDUS http://sttbi.ac.id/journal/index.php/diegesis/article/view/235 <p><em>The outpouring of the Holy Spirit is often associated with the words of the apostle Peter when quoting the words of Joel. 2:28-29 contains God's promise to all mankind. Fulfillment of this promise aims to empower God's people in carrying out God's mission, namely evangelism. Nevertheless, ironically the congregation does not necessarily understand the meaning of this text and is reluctant to preach the gospel. This study seeks to find the meaning of the text with the message of the gospel. The method used is a qualitative narrative with hermeneutic procedures. This study finds the meaning of the text that the outpouring of the Holy Spirit for every believer without any limitations with the aim of evangelism empowered by the Holy Spirit so that all nations can know the great work of God done through Jesus Christ. This study also recommends that the church understand the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, empowered evangelism, and synergies of evangelism programs between churches.</em></p> Leonardo Latumanuwy, Gernaida Krisna R.

Those communities reject the authenticity of the Bible. The problem is that the authorship and content of the Bible cannot be defended. These people echo their teachings through YouTube shows, publishing books, and journals. Anti-Biblical groups from all walks of life will continue to echo doubts about the Bible's authenticity. This study aims to affirm the inerrancy of the Bible as a valid truth in the Christian faith. This study uses a qualitative literature study approach that discusses etymology, understanding, theories, and concepts of expert opinion used to analyze the Bible. The results of the study stated that the truth of God's Word in the Bible was genuinely actual without the slightest error in both inerrancy and infallibility.</em></p> Rudy Budiatmaja Copyright (c) 2022 Diegesis : Jurnal Teologi https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://sttbi.ac.id/journal/index.php/diegesis/article/view/200 Wed, 31 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0000
