Christianity has been made into a very western-centric religion and yet how does that perception reflect statements like the following?
“For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation”.
What does something like that actually look like from a non-colonialist viewpoint, where those from other tribes, tongues and nations don’t have to become like us (in the west) to fit into God’s Kingdom?
Especially when many of those “other tribes and nations” seem to reflect lifestyles more closely in line with biblical standards than our westernised lifestyles.
And then should we consider some of those highly questionable things with which “Christians” in the west have become identified? How many of those things that we think of as normal or acceptable in Christian life are in reality a result of following western cultural norms?
