Gospel and Culture

Found this quote today, by Lesslie Newbigin, a pretty well-known English Missionary who went to India for years and came back and wrote some really top stuff.

We must start with the basic fact that there is no such thing as a pure gospel if by that is meant something which is not embodied in a culture…The missionary does not come with the pure gospel and then adapt it to the culture where she serves: she comes with a gospel which is already embodied in the culture by which the missionary was formed”

This has been put well...surprised that there have been no comments yet. We have to understand our own biases before we can do anything!
