Culturally relevant or ashamed of the Gospel?

by | Mar 12, 2013 | Emergent Church, Podcast

aIn these increasingly uncertain times, we are seeing a whole new level of worldliness in the Church. We seem to have adopted a “seekermergent” model that focuses on being relevant to those who don’t know Christ, by looking exactly like the culture. But those who are lost already have the culture, so why would they need the Church?  Instead of telling them about our need for a Savior and preaching repentance for our sins and the forgiveness Jesus offered once and for all in His sacrifice, we talk of tolerance, acceptance and serving the world without evangelizing.

Joining us for our first segment is a man who knows those hard-to-reach people who desperately need to hear the real Gospel: The Muslim people group, of which Elijah Abraham was once a part. Born and raised in Baghdad, Elijah is now a born-again Christian and today is the founder and executive director of Living Oasis Ministries, reaching Muslims with the Gospel. Abraham is part of Biblical Missiology, a group dedicated to shining the light of truth on a movement called Chrislam, the blending of Christianity and Islam that has been infesting the Body of Christ and is a growing concern.
