Cultural World-Views

Matthew 28:16-20

Blessan Babu | Sunday January 20, 2019 | Miscellaneous

When taking the gospel to people from different cultures, we need to understand whether they come from an “innocence/guilt” culture, an “honour/shame” culture or a “fear/power” culture. We need to be careful of reading “honour/shame” passages in the Bible as “innocence/guilt” passages.

The Complaining Prophet

Habakkuk 1:1-2:1

Dan Maton | Sunday December 2, 2018 | Habakkuk

Habakkuk confronts God when it looks as if God has forsaken the covenant. Like him, our faith should enable us to wrestle with God when we are perplexed. This involves taking the problem to God, being honest with God about our questions, not prescribing the answers, and learning to wait when God does not respond straight away.
