How to Navigate the Tension between Kingdom and Culture

To be a Christian is to live in tension; the tension between the now and the not yet, the is and the is to come, between what has been promised and what has yet to be fulfilled. And we experience this tension daily as we are called to live as citizens of the Kingdom of God exiled in a foreign land: the culture of the world. It’s a lifelong pursuit, learning to live in this tension with integrity and grace.

To help you deepen your understanding of the Kingdom of God and learn to engage with culture, we’re releasing two new Mobile Ed courses. And if you pre-order them today, you could save up to $200!

Explore the Kingdom of God with Dr. Nicholas Perrin

Develop a comprehensive and practical understanding of the Kingdom of God with Dr. Nicholas Perrin’s course A Biblical Theology of the Kingdom of God (B1301). Join Dr. Perrin as he traces the theological concept of God’s Kingdom from Creation, through the Old Testament, and into the New Testament. You’ll dive deep into Old Testament covenants, Jesus’ parables, and the New Testament Epistles to discover answers to questions such as:

  • What is the Kingdom of God?
  • How does the Messiah relate to the Kingdom?
  • Who does the Kingdom belong to?
  • What does the Kingdom of God look like?
  • How can I live as a citizen of God’s Kingdom in my daily life?

Discover what it means be part of the Kingdom Of God—Get Dr. Perrin’s A Biblical Theology of the Kingdom of God (BI301) today.

Learn to engage culture responsibly with Dr. Darrell Bock

Understanding how to live as Kingdom citizens is only truly complete when we learn to engage our surrounding culture with both integrity and respect. Discerning how to live out Kingdom values and how to love our neighbors—even and especially when their worldviews differ vastly from our own—is the task we face daily.

In Cultural Engagement and Scripture (CS121), Dr. Darrell Bock tackles this issue head on, introducing the concept of cultural engagement and laying bare the complexities and the biblical tensions involved in this difficult but important venture. Along with sound wisdom for navigating the potentially difficult situations that arise from these issues, you’ll learn key biblical principles for how to practically and effectively engage culture, translate theological concepts, and graciously challenge unbiblical worldviews for the good of the person and of society as a whole.

Dr. Bock will teach you how to navigate the complexity and tension of cultural engagement, and how to use Scripture to engage responsibly and respectfully. Pre-order his course today and save $60.
