Christian Faith Promotes Cultural Diversity

Cultural diversity was built into the Christian faith…in Acts 15, which declared that the new gentile Christians didn’t have to enter Jewish culture…The converts had to work out…a Hellenistic way of being a Christian. ¬†[So] no one owns the Christian faith. ¬†There is no ‘Christian culture’ the way there is an “Islamic” culture which you recognize from Pakistan to Tunisia to Morocco…
