Holistic Spirituality: Part 33—Our Relationship to Society (#1)

Ken Boa moves into the final relationship arena in which our faith should intersect with practice: society. How (and how much) should our faith have a bearing on our social involvement/action? Based on Scripture, Ken advocates a both/and attitude toward truth-centered (or personal) holiness and deed-centered (or social) holiness. While the Bible does not teach that the mission of the church is to bring society in conformity with the expectations of God, neither does it suggest that a believer should keep faith as only a privatized, individualized matter.
