Now the LORD said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who curses you I will curse; and by you all the families of the earth shall bless themselves.” Genesis 12:1-3
God is calling to Himself a new creation, a new people, but we do not believe He is doing away with cultures that make peoples distinct. All peoples must become equidistant to the grace and the blessings of our living Lord and reflect His glory in worship.
