What Sort of Christian Education Will Build a Truly Christian Culture?

Building a truly Christian culture is our God-given task (Genesis 1:26-28; Matthew 28:18-20; 2 Corinthians 10:5; Colossians 1:17, 18). All Christians must do what they can with the talents God has given them to transform the culture in which they live. They do this for God's glory, by his Word and Spirit, and with faith in his promises. The God-given task of Christian culture building is possible because Christ is the Savior, Lord, Restorer, and Judge of culture. His person and work have made culture possible again. Consistent Christianity must maintain that the unique person and work of Christ is the sole foundation for cultural progress, civil justice, and world peace. Only by turning to him in faith and repentance will Western and indeed world culture recover its purpose, standard, and motivation.
