In the past few years, Christian leaders like Platt have challenged Americans to consider how cultural worldview impacts our understanding of the gospel.

Christ commanded his disciples to disobey our cultures rule of self-obedience. From major life decisions to minor life decisions, God calls Christians to consistently deny themselves.
