10 Suggestions for Engaging Our Culture with the Gospel

From Josh Moody of College Church in Wheaton, Illinois:

1. Keep the Main Thing the Main Thing

2. Develop an Ear to Unbiblical Offenses

3. Understand What It Is about the Cross that Offends

4. Realize the Intellectual Shallowness of Most of the Critiques

5. Appreciate, but Don’t Overplay, the Moral Undertone

6. Understand the Rhetorical Power of Love

7. Have a Sanguine, but Realistic, Appreciation of the Limitations of Cultural Change

8. Understand What Is Truly (and What Is Not) Distinct about “Christianity”

9. Read Widely

10. Understand That Our Regular Hearers, Those We Preach to, Are Dealing with This on a Daily Basis Even if We Are Not

Go here to read a brief explanation of each.
