Christ against Culture
Summary of the Important Points in the Approach
In Christ and Culture, Richard Niebuhr discusses important approaches and types of association between Christ and culture. In one of the approaches in the book, the author discusses the contradiction between Christ and culture in what is entitled as ‘Christ against culture.’ The approach affirms the authority of Christ over cultures and rejects the claim to cultural loyalty. In this perspective, one cannot be loyal to Christ and culture and the same time. When one becomes faithful to Christ, he or she appears to rejects the cultural nature of the society and vice-versa. There is a clear division between being a faithful believer of God and being an earthly person (Niebuhr, 1975).
