Throughout the Bible we see the theme of the nations being brought in to the gospel story. The gospel reorients us to pursue a multicultural, diverse church body as a picture of the kingdom on earth.
As we seek to be the people God has called us to be in this culture, there are three temptations we face: converting culture, condemning culture and consuming culture.
Following the Early Church’s persecution, there was a time in which Christianity had cultural favor in power. Post-Enlightenment, however, Christianity is moving toward a season of hostility and marginalization.
