EP 04 | Our Cultural Identities

In the 4th episode of Unfractured, Skot Welch and Eric Johnson discuss our cultural identity from a Christian perspective. They emphasize the importance of distinguishing between one's identity in Christ and the identity imposed by cultural norms and affiliations.

Skot and Eric highlight the significance of allowing God to name us. They stress that, above all else, individuals should identify as children of God, beloved and redeemed by Jesus Christ. Contrasting our divine identity with the various labels society may assign based on political affiliations, ethnicity, or other factors.

They delve into the complex interplay between personal identity and Christian culture. Arguing that the Church - like any other group - is responsible for curating its own culture, and this culture can sometimes overshadow the core identity of being a child of God. They encourage listeners to transcend and align their identity more closely with Christ's teachings.

Eric shares his concerns about the Church's response to social justice issues, noting that the Church's culture can sometimes lead to an "us versus them" mentality. Skot emphasizes the need for a shift in perspective to address these challenges effectively.

Throughout the conversation, Skot and Eric stress the importance of introspection and personal growth. They argue that individuals should start by examining their hearts and motives, recognizing that change begins from within. They caution against painting cultures with broad brushes, advocating for a more nuanced and individualized approach to understanding cultural identity.

This episode challenges us to take responsibility for our spiritual journey and contribute to cultural change. It reminds us that God holds us accountable for what we do - and do not do - during our time on Earth, stressing the importance of self-leadership and growth.
