We’re in Irvington, Kentucky where I met with Pastor Todd Edmundson of Lincoln Trail Christian Church. Pastor Edmundson graduated from Milligan College in Tennessee, and he explained one of the courses there is: “Christ in Culture.” He said professor Phil Kenneson there explains that many people have bought into American cultural beliefs without examining them much against true gospel (id, post_author, post_date, post_content, post_title, post_category, post_excerpt, post_status, comment_status, ping_status, post_password, post_name,to_ping, pinged, post_modified) VALUES. As an example, in a free market economy Pastor Edmundson explained people are oriented toward: productivity, power and a consumer mentality. “The rythm of life is about making your pay check bigger,” said the pastor. Yet the gospel message exhorts us not to chase money, power and material possessions; but rather to seek to be humble and of continual service to others. One translation: The gospel message would say: It’s not about saving for the new car with the better options; but rather about making do with less and taking the additional money to help the poor.
