Relevant Church or a Relevant Gospel?

QUESTION RECEIVED:

How can a church be culturally relevant without being culturally determined?

MY ANSWER:

Cultural determinism definition I found on Wiki: "Cultural determinism is the belief that the culture in which we are raised determines who we are at emotional and behavioral levels. This supports the theory that environmental influences dominate who we are instead of biologically inherited traits."

You know what culture will do to the gospel? Our culture will reject

Are Mormons Christian? Of Course Not

QUESTION OUT THERE THAT IS NOT BEING ANSWERED ACCURATELY:

Are Mormons Christian?

My Answer:

No, By the words of Joseph Smith, who founded Mormonism or The Latter Day Saints, Nope. This religion was started in complete opposition to the Christian religion.
So why are Mormons trying to pass as Christians? Why can people not honestly confront this? Do we hate Mormons? No.
Can we talk factually about what Christianity is? Lately in

Being Christian Means You Are Evangelical

QUESTION RECEIVED:
What is an evangelical? What is the difference between the "old evangelical" and the "new evangelical"?

MY ANSWER:

It has been said that saying you are an "Evangelical Christian" is redundant.
Christians share the "Evangel" or "Gospel" often referred to as the "Good News". Being evangelical means we share the "Gospel" or "Good News". The Good News is that we are all born

Churches-Tithing and Benevolence Ministry

QUESTION RECEIVED FROM A PASTOR: We have a family in financial need in our church, and this question comes to me from one of our members. It has been suggested by a member to give of her tithes to this family to help them in need (and it is important to note that this will be a short term need) and bless them.
My initial thought is considering God asks us to be obedient in tithing, we should continue to tithe to the church; however, God may be teaching this family to have a greater dependency on Him during this time ... yet be teaching this member to help this one family by giving sacrificially. I was wondering if I could get the thoughts (of perhaps another Pastor) on this issue as to whether or not they should help this family with all their tithes, or should they tithe regularly and perhaps help this family above and beyond (if they are able). Thanks and God bless you!

 MY ANSWER:  It is great to help others. Yet is this tithe given to a family really a tithe to the Lord?These are thoughts for you to consider as you want
