The Danger of Being Assimilated

Speaker:
Passage: Hosea 6:11-7:16
Service Type:

The advance of Christ's Kingdom on earth has always included the great struggle of the Church against cultural assimilation

THE EXAMPLES OF THE DRIFT TOWARD ASSIMILATION IN BIBLICAL HISTORY
- Lot and Sodom (Genesis)
- Israel and Egypt (Exodus)
- The conquest of Canaan (Joshua)
- The people's demand for a King (Judges)
- Israel's Fall (Hosea)
- Judah's Fall (Jeremiah)
- During the time of Christ and the Apostles (James addresses)
- Ongoing struggle right up to present

NOTICE THE FEATURE OF CULTURAL ASSIMILATION IN HOSEA'S DAY
- Unfaithful Leadership
- Lack of the true knowledge of God
- Lack of repentance when confronted by God
- Mixture with the world

HOW MIGHT WE (THE CHURCH/CHRISTIANS) RESIST CULTURAL ASSIMILATION?
