The Kingdom and Our Culture

The Kingdom and Our Culture

How can Christians live for eternity without ignoring the present?
Single Session Bible Study

Overview

When Michael S. Horton looks at American evangelicalism, he sees a tradition whose global positioning system is out of whack. "Instead of being in the world but not of it," he writes, "we easily become of the world but not in it." As a result of this error, the church, society, and, especially, the children of believers suffer.

What is God's kingdom supposed to look like? How does the kingdom come into being? Where do God's children fit in? These are the questions we'll explore in this study.
