Defining Syncretism

This session introduces the significance of culture, explaining how we absorb certain features of society unconsciously.  Syncretism, mixing biblical and unbiblical values of culture, is defined and shown to have greater impact on our lives than we often assume. It explains why we must teach certain basic features of scripture clearly to avoid mixing truth with unbiblical values while establishing rock solid foundations on which to build our lives. Understanding the subtlety of syncretism forces us to ask probing questions about values we hold.
