The Diverse Cultural Church

The church of Jesus Christ has progressed from a small group of Jewish believers in Palestine over 2,000 years ago to a diverse world-wide body of Christians (totaling 2.1. billion) echoing the message of the kingdom of God to a lost world. The diversity of language, culture, and geographical expansion has only served to confuse not clarify the issue. Prophetically speaking we can never forget our Jewish roots, but we must not become slaves or worshipers of Judaism at the expense of short changing Christianity and making it one dimensional. I am not sure we are on the right track when we try to duplicate culture instead of grasping the emphasis and purpose behind various Jewish customs.
