There’s a debate in the church about how culturally relevant the church should be. Some claim that cultural relevance is of utmost importance, and others claim that it’s unbiblical. It’s curious that Paul, when he was addressing the people of Athens, drew attention to their statue to the “unknown god.” The people of Athens were very religious people, and they had statues to many gods. In their efforts to makes sure they didn’t leave any god out, they also created this one to the “unknown god.” Interestingly enough, Paul leveraged the people’s religiosity to help them understand the God of the Bible – the Creator God who made man in His own image. The argument seems clear for the church today: leverage what’s timely to teach what’s timeless – use the means of the culture to teach Biblical truth that transcends cultures.
