Christianity is something that has come down to us through different cultures and different epoch in time. One thing about time is that change is constant. With its interactions with these cultures, there are bound to be changes introduced into what we practice today as Christianity. It is, therefore, necessary to strip off all the add-ons, to rediscover what Christianity is at the core.
This course is the first of a series in which man’s tradition will be stripped off so that we might grasp God’s original design and purpose for mankind when he gave us this thing we now call Christian. Most of what we do in our church sermons is interpret Christianity based on our present culture. We interpret ancient writings based on what we see in the modern world. Every communication and interaction happens in a socio-cultural context.
Therefore you cannot use a different culture to interpret something that happens in the context of another culture. That would only lead to all kinds of inaccurate conclusions. And indeed, we have been preaching many inaccuracies. In this course, we would look at Christianity from its historical and cultural context of those who initiated it. You will be shocked by what you will find out. This course will greatly enlighten you and transform your walk with God. Here you will learn about what you duty to God is, what we are meant to do in this age, what would take you to hell, how to fellowship with other believers, how to respond to a calling in ministry, the future of Christianity, and so on.
