Some people speak of three categories of Christian engagement of culture: receive, reject, redeem. And Brian Godawa has written about cultural gluttons vs. People using these categories, consciously or unconsciously, have inherited this kind of systemization from H. Niebuhr notices five main ways that Christians interact with culture. Radicals see Christ and culture in opposition: Christ against culture.
Tertullian and Tolstoy are presented as representativ Some people speak of three categories of Christian engagement of culture: receive, reject, redeem. Tertullian and Tolstoy are presented as representatives, although in each category, Niebuhr is careful to say that he is speaking broadly to determine types; Niebuhr acknowledges that those whom he calls representatives exhibit qualities of other categories as well.
This category corresponds to the "reject" category, especially regarding the withdrawal of Christians from society and the emphasis on 2 Cor. To an extent, the second wave of 20c. Christian fundamentalism could fit here, with its strong stance on separation.
Culturalists idealize the relationship between Christ and culture, seeing mostly an agreement: Christ of culture. Representatives could include Walter Rauschenbusch and others who were part of the social gospel, emphasizing the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man in an attempt to accommodate Christ and culture cf. Barth's "Cultural Protestantism". This is the "receive" category. Niebuhr lumps the next three together, and they would all fit in the "redeem" category.
But even as hybrids as opposed to receiving or rejecting , there are significant differences between the groups. Synthesists see Christ as the fulfillment of cultural aspirations: Christ above culture. They see pagans as having a fragmented light, and all they need is to be pointed in the right direction; it's as if unbelievers are able to climb up so far to God on their own, and Christ supplies the missing link to bridge the gap. Niebuhr puts Thomas Aquinas here, with his baptism of Aristotle.
Cornelius Van Til puts C. Lewis here. Dualists, best represented by Luther, view sin's effect on humanity as being too powerful for Christ and culture to be in complete synthesis: Christ and culture are in paradox. Society is unconquerably immoral , but at least Christians can live out the gospel.
The kingdom of the world has useful things in it, which Christians can be involved in, but this kingdom is always in tension with the kingdom of God. The kingship of Christ has little to do with the kingdom of the world, although most secular activities are permitted. Most importantly, there is no way to pursue secular activities in a distinctively Christian manner; that is confusing the two kingdoms, and it's like putting the devil in heaven and God in hell Niebuhr calls Roger Williams the best American example of this idea , especially in the separation of church and state As Niebuhr describes this category, "Man is a great amphibian who lives in two realms, and must avoid using in one the ideas and methods appropriate to the other" The emphasis is on "endurance in the expectation of a transhistorical salvation" Conversionists see Christ as the converter of man in his culture and society: Christ is the transformer of culture.
Although Augustine did speak about the City of Man and the City of God, Niebuhr thinks Augustine emphasized the transformative potential of the gospel enough for him not to be put in the dualist category. There is an emphasis on creation, fall, and redemption —not the creation-fall-redemption-consummation that dualists sometimes speak of, where God redeems individual souls before the Second Coming, but waits until later to actually fix the world.
Because of the fall, human culture has become disordered, but the work of redemption is to reorder creation. Niebuhr puts Calvin here: "Calvinism has been marked by the influence of the eschatological hope of transformation by Christ and by its consequent pressing toward the realization of the promise" Jonathan Edwards would be an American version Highly recommended.

Niehbur's book, Christ and Culture, presents five different views of how Christians understood Christ and Culture. The first is Christ Against Culture, which is best displayed by the anabaptists and the Amish. It is the separatist view. The second is Christ Of Culture.
This is best pictured by liberal Protestantism, and its efforts to interpret culture as if it were representative of Christ. These folks tend to interpret philosophy and science as if it is all good and teaches what Christ himself Niehbur's book, Christ and Culture, presents five different views of how Christians understood Christ and Culture. These folks tend to interpret philosophy and science as if it is all good and teaches what Christ himself taught. Thus, "Christianity so interpreted became a religious and philosophic system, regarded doubtless as the best and only true one, yet one among many.
This view takes a synthesist approach, there is a Christ, and there is a Culture. To culture we go to discern the laws of culture, because culture is the work of God. Reason and revelation are both equally sources of law and truth for living, dependent upon which area of life one is living in.
This is seen in the works of Thomas Aquinas. It is a move from culture and understanding through reason to Christ and understanding through revelation.
This is Luther's view, generally. It is dualist, although not in the Manichean sense. This view takes the opposite approach of Christ Above Culture. It does not move from culture to Christ, but from Christ to culture. Christ deals with the problems of the moral life, and then provides for man to carry on his work in life culture , but does not directly govern the external actions in which he does so.
Further, "No increase of scientific and technical knowledge can renew the spirit within us; but the right spirit will impel us to seek knowledge and skill in our special vocations in the world that we may render service. This view is seen in Augustine and Calvin, as well as others.

Richard Niebuhr and the Enduring Debate
This article analyzes H. Richard Niebuhr's Christ and Culture. Keywords: Christian ethics , God , Christian ethical history , faith.
This view was expounded by Thomas Aquinas, and has been a predominant position among Roman Catholics since. Christ Against Culture: this first alternative encourages opposition, total separation, and hostility toward culture,and a commitment to creating a separate, pure community that is, culture of Christians. No aspect of reality is alien to the kingdom of God. Tertullian, Tolstoy, Menno Simons, and, in the 20th century, Jacques Ellul are exponents of this position. Second, the Christ of Culture perspective is exactly the opposite of Christ against Culture because it attempts to bring culture and Christianity together, regardless of their differences.
The problem has challenged the church during the course of its entire existence: How are Christians to engage and relate to the surrounding culture? How should we then live? What does it look like to be in the world but not of it?

Нуматака улыбнулся. Похоже, он снискал благословение - шичигосан. Скоро Нуматек станет единственным обладателем единственного экземпляра Цифровой крепости. Другого нет и не. Двадцать миллионов долларов - это очень большие деньги, но если принять во внимание, за что они будут заплачены, то это сущие гроши. ГЛАВА 19 - А вдруг кто-то еще хочет заполучить это кольцо? - спросила Сьюзан, внезапно заволновавшись.
Не в этом дело, - дипломатично ответила Мидж, понимая, что ступает на зыбкую почву. - Еще не было случая, чтобы в моих данных появлялись ошибки. Поэтому я хочу узнать мнение специалиста. - Что ж, - сказал Джабба, - мне неприятно первым тебя разочаровать, но твои данные неверны. - Ты так думаешь.

Я решила ее издать. - Издать? - Он с сомнением покачал головой. - Издать. - Некоторые идеи о протоколах вариативных фильтров и квадратичных остатках. - Стопроцентный бестселлер. Она засмеялась.
Члены группы будут уверены, что производят облаву на наркодельцов. Стратмор, несомненно, постарается проверить все лично и найти пароль из шестидесяти четырех знаков. Затем он его уничтожит, и Цифровая крепость навсегда исчезнет из Интернета. - Действуй своим маячком очень осторожно, - сказал Стратмор. - Если Северная Дакота заподозрит, что мы его ищем, он начнет паниковать и исчезнет вместе с паролем, так что никакая штурмовая группа до него не доберется. - Все произойдет, как булавочный укол, - заверила его Сьюзан. - В тот момент, когда обнаружится его счет, маяк самоуничтожится.
Сьюзан нервничала: прошло уже слишком много времени. Взглянув на Следопыта, она нахмурилась. - Ну давай же, - пробормотала. - У тебя было много времени. Сьюзан положила руку на мышку и вывела окно состояния Следопыта. Сколько времени он уже занят поиском. Открылось окно - такие же цифровые часы, как на ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ, которые должны были показывать часы и минуты работы Следопыта.
Он не хотел, чтобы оно попало в АНБ. Но чего еще можно было ждать от Танкадо - что он сохранит кольцо для них, будучи уверенным в том, что они-то его и убили. И все же Сьюзан не могла поверить, что Танкадо допустил бы .
