Culture and God’s kingdom

Regarding culture, I believe that God has divinely ordained nations, ethnic groups of peoples as his original design for cultural and ethnic diversity (Gen 10:32).

Culture has been affected by sin and because of humanity’s selfish desires, God confused the language of the whole world and scattered them abroad (Gen 11:9).

The church has been made up of many people from every culture since it’s beginning at Pentecost. It is in the best interest of all believers to share in celebrating the things about culture that help one another to best represent the gospel and worship God with others in their culture. Jesus is not the cowboy’s religion…but Jesus loves all the children of the world!

In the advent of Christ’s second coming and eternal reign culture will not disappear. There will be people worshipping from every nation, tribe, people and tongue standing before the throne of God (Rev. 7:9).
