Evangelizing During Cultural War

The Ascension Team

Instead of deciding whether to talk about Jesus or culture, why not discuss both? Today, Gomer and Dave “No Friends, No Fear” VanVickle discuss how we can integrate evangelization with heavy cultural topics, instead of pitting them against each other.

Snippet from the Show

“Calling people to evangelization is not calling people to a warm and fuzzy feeling. The evangelist must be prepared to be crucified.”

  • Appreciate hearing your thoughts on this topic. I’m not surprised you addressed the need to include moral teaching on sexuality with the kerygma, etc. But what is just as challenging to today’s culture and people are authentic Catholic/biblical teaching on “mammon”. I hope you can reflect on/learn about the faith issues of money/wealth/greed/stewardship etc. as well, and their effects on discipleship and family life.
