Culture Matters!

Contend
Jude 1:3 Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.

As Christians we ought to engage the culture with the powerful, transforming, life-changing, message of the Gospel while being faithful to the content of unchanging Biblical doctrine.

Contextualize
1 Corinthians 9:22 to the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak; I have become all things to all men, so that I may by all means save some.

“Churches and Christians should continually reform their ministry methods to most effectively reach the changing culture(s) to which they are sent by God as missionaries.”

So… “As generations come of age, the Gospel of Jesus Christ must resurge to meet the needs of people and their continually changing cultures. The time has come for the church to move forward into the time and place for which God purposed us and to meet our day with unchanging, vibrant, unabashed truth.”
