Knowing what culture is, how to relate to the culture, and how to think about it as it relates to the church and kingdom are crucial questions.Today, we find Christians attempting to divorce themselves from culture, though it is actually impossible; simply going with the flow of culture and not questioning it; or caught in the middle wanting to know how to understand, interact, and live within culture.
