The power of Christ to change the culture

Episode 3 of "Being Christian in today's culture"

April 18, 2024 -

In this third episode of our special eight-episode series called “Being Christian in today’s culture,” Dr. Denison discusses the necessity of faith in Christ as a pillar for biblical flourishing. He answers questions such as:

What is faith? How can a life transformed by faith in Christ transform the culture? What is the difference between religion and morality?

The conversation with Dr. Denison also covers the significance of the Holy Spirit in empowering believers to live out their faith, the challenge of maintaining Christian beliefs in an increasingly secular culture, and the practical ways Christians can influence society positively.
