A Game Plan for Post-Christian Cultures with Lennox Kalifungwa

Share This Post

At a Glance

How can we really build Christ-honoring cultures these days? How should our approach be different from past generations now that we live in a time when there is often a negative perception of believers? This week’s guest, Lennox Kalifungwa from Zambia, shares practical ways we can shape cultures that reflect the truth, goodness, and beauty of God’s Kingdom. We discuss an inside-out strategy, beginning with personal transformation that extends through our relationships and vocations. It’s essential that we see ourselves as builders rather than consumers of culture, being proactive rather than reactive to culture wars, and strategically choose which issues to engage in. 

Lennox helps us consider how we can influence more than our immediate circles and reminds us of the profound impact that biblical values can make through faithful generations. Lastly, we emphasize the power of joy, laughter, and even satire for believers living in sobering times. Join us as we aim to shape cultures that align with God’s original design for humanity.

Quotes

Joshua could be courageous to fight the battles he was called to fight not because he saw a strength or wisdom in himself or among the people around him. It’s because he knew the God he was fighting for. He believed the promises of God. And that’s where it has to begin for us as well, in recognizing who our King is, what He has commissioned us to do. – Lennox Kalifungwa [11:16]

The way we view ourselves is critical. We ought to see ourselves as culture builders and not just cultural survivors or cultural consumers. - Lennox Kalifungwa [1:03:30]

When the principles of the Bible are understood as a comprehensive worldview, it has tremendous power to work transformation in individuals, families, communities, and even nations. Too often, Christians are ineffective because they have absorbed cultural thinking that is not in alignment with truth.

Not all worldviews are equal. Some lead to brokenness and poverty, while the biblical worldview leads to God’s intended flourishing and the blessing of the nations.

Discipling Nations: The Power of Truth to Transform Cultures

The power of the gospel to transform individual lives has been clearly evident throughout New Testament history. But what of the darkness and poverty that enslaves entire cultures, even nations? Have Christians underestimated the power of God’s truth to transform entire societies? Have Christians underestimated the power of God’s truth to transform entire societies? In Discipling Nations, Darrow Miller builds a powerful and convincing thesis that God’s truth not only breaks the spiritual bonds of sin and death but can free whole societies from deception and poverty. Completely revised and updated for the third edition, Discipling Nations will challenge, reenergize, and equip Christians everywhere who labor to see His kingdom come, His will be done. Also available in other languages.

Dominion: How the Christian Revolution Remade the World

Crucifixion, the Romans believed, was the worst fate imaginable, a punishment reserved for slaves. How astonishing it was, then, that people should have come to believe that one particular victim of crucifixion — an obscure provincial by the name of Jesus — was to be worshipped as a god. Dominion explores the implications of this shocking conviction as they have reverberated throughout history. Today, the West remains utterly saturated by Christian assumptions. As Tom Holland demonstrates, our morals and ethics are not universal but are instead the fruits of a very distinctive civilization. Concepts such as secularism, liberalism, science, and homosexuality are deeply rooted in a Christian seedbed. From Babylon to the Beatles, Saint Michael to #MeToo, Dominion tells the story of how Christianity transformed the modern world.

In the fight to end abortion, changing policies is necessary, but it falls woefully short of solving the problem.
