Idols and False Gods

From BBST 458: Theology of Mission

Dr. Allen Yeh considers the effect that foreign religions have on missions work and reviews Scripture to establish the gravity of idol worship. He also examines how Christians might contextualize the gospel properly. Yeh draws parallels to Abraham's interaction with Melchizedek and Paul's preaching in Athens, showing that borrowed language and concepts must be utilized to reach different cultures. In closing, Yeh lists many of the ways that Western Christian culture stems from pagan language and practices.
