Cultural helps and hinderances

Sam Tullock’s comments on the lesson offer a good outline of the background passage. He also states that Americans “embrace a gospel that has little place for confrontational preaching.”

Our culture both helps and hinders us as we seek to follow the Lord’s will. For example, consider how we value: (1) Individual freedom and liberty, (2) Technological advances, and (3) Wealth, health, comfort and entertainment.

Discuss with your class how these values can be a blessing and help us follow the Lord, or how they can deter us.
