Out of the Culture – John Burke
The western Church is continuing to lose ground in terms of the culture becoming the church.
The average person in our culture doesn’t see that the message of Jesus is exactly what they’re seeking because there’s so much misconception on what it means to follow Jesus.
The church need to focus on how do we connect with the average person so that they can begin to see that the message of Jesus is actually what they’re really looking for? How do we show that deep love, joy, peace, contentment doesn’t come from out there – more success, more stuff, improving relationship with spouse or kids – but rather that it’s spiritual in nature and that’s what the way of Jesus brings.
So the church has got to bring that to the culture and then help the culture become the church.
