Duration:46 mins 34 secs
 

 

 

THE CULTURAL EXCHANGE – COUNTER CULTURAL MAN

DANIEL 1

 

THE QUESTION THE BOOK OF DANIEL RAISES IS HOW DO YOU LIVE (EVEN SUCCEED) IN A PROGRESSIVE AND COMPETING ENVIRONMENT, AS YOU REMAIN FAITHFUL TO YOUR CALLING AND DISTINCTIVENESS AS A FOLLOWER OF GOD?

 

GOD IS SOVEREIGNLY AT WORK IN THE WORLD, 1:1-3

 

THE SOVEREIGN AND THE SIEGE …

 

DEFEAT,

 

THE SIEGE AND THE SONS …

 

DEPORTATION,

 

DEGRADATION,

 

CHRISTIANS WILL BE CHALLENGED IN THE WORLD, 1:3-7

 

A CHRISTIAN WORLD VIEW:

 

“A COMPREHENSIVE VIEW OF LIFE THROUGH WHICH WE THINK, UNDERSTAND AND JUDGE, AND WHICH DETERMINES OUR APPROACH TO LIFE AND MEANING.”

DANNY AKIN

 

“ A WORLDVIEW IS THAT BASIC SET OF ASSUMPTIONS THAT GIVES MEANING TO ONE’S THOUGHTS. A WORLDVIEW IS THE SET OF ASSUMPTIONS THAT SOMEONE HAS ABOUT THE WAY THINGS ARE, ABOUT WHAT THINGS ARE, ABOUT WHY THINGS ARE.”

RUSS BUSH, PROF OF PHILOSOPHY, SOUTHEASTERN SEMINARY

 

THE CHALLENGES:

 

ISOLATION, 1:3

 

INDOCTRINATION, 1:4

 

ASSIMILATION, 1:5

 

CONFUSION, 1:6

 

CHRISTIANS MUST DEVELOP CONVICTIONS TROUGH THE WORD, 1:8-13

 

MAKE UP YOUR MIND, 1:8

 

WIN THE AUTHORITY OF THOSE IN AUTHORITY WHEN POSSIBLE, 1:8-10

 

WISELY OFFER ALTERNATIVES THAT ARE WIN/WIN, 1:11-13

 

GOD HONORS OUR FAITH I, 1:14-21

 

GOD BLESSES THEM:

 

PHYSICALLY, 1:14-16

 

MENTALLY, 1:17,20

 

SOCIALLY, 1:18-21
