Impacting Culture: The Bride, The Warrior And The Statesmen

Intriguing teaching here from Lance Wallnau. Focus and alignment need to somehow fall into place within the steams and movements in the church in order to create a focused critical mass to impact culture. I have always wondered how small groups within our culture with razor-focus can create such drastic change in the moral fabric of our nation.

Take a look at Lances ideas on this.

Note: I would probably not go with the name, “Killer Sheep” but I understand the spirit in which Lance shares it. Here is a link back to Lance’s Post.

Let me know your thoughts around this. Agree? Disagree? Is this explained accurately? Any ideas, thoughts or solutions? I’m interested in your thoughts. Leave a comment.

  1. Breaking through culture begins with understanding what it takes to influence culture. The church needs a generational vision for influencing the world. This means our children will need to be educated. We need modern day Daniels who are 10 times better than those around them. If we are going to change the culture we have to become salty again so we can season it. We have to teach our kids how to infiltrate darkness instead of how to avoid it. Those who are shaping culture have earned the right to do so. We will not be allowed in the arena without earning the right to speak into it.

    1. Dean, lots of good thoughts you shared here and I would agree with them.

      I enjoyed the segment from Lance though I think it falls short in offering some ideas on”how” we can do this. Sure, I can point my finger at what we are not doing and I see all the various streams and what they are doing, but somehow we need real strategy on what we can begin doing.

      Or do we?

  2. Fascinating … love Christ and culture stuff.
    As the stature of Christ rises withing his Body, how can there not be a transforming effect upon culture? Christ is supreme over all things. I see the transforming of culture as a “foretaste” and witness of the Age to Come (Heb. 6.5). Our challenge in transforming culture is that the sway of this world’s system is under the influence of the evil one: mainstream media, educational elites … really the 7 mountains that Lance talks about. So our need for focus and alignment is pretty critical. Every initiative we take must be sourced in Jesus via the Holy Spirit. I’m thinking of Gideon’s 300 men. They broke thru with consecration, guidance, and focus …
    Great topic!

    1. Thanks for the input, Brian. I agree. I think prayer is essential and devotion to the great commission is vital. One way to influence our culture is to create godly solutions for our cities and become a voice that has answers.

      Yet, I sense a “backing off” from truth in the pulpits and a growing diluted morality in believers. But I believe that the Lord is setting people, ministries and organizations in place to grow His kingdom in the midst of what we are seeing and hearing.

      I believe the Lord is providing heavenly council to many people and we will see greater alignment and focus in the coming season. We need to continue to pray for godly wisdom and divine strategy. 😉

  3. Presence + Policy + Political Articulation… Good summary combo but we’re still missing the quality cohesion in execution and delivery that speaks for itself; but I guess he makes his point of the body being ineffective and scattered since those things are only possible when all parts come together in unity.

    1. Hello Angel. You are absolutely right. At this point I don’t have many solutions to bring a united front converging all these streams. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. I see the gay community with one focus that its ok to be gay and if you’re against it we will make you ok at all cost.

    God is good. He is really really good. I think the world needs to experience more of His goodness.

    Just a thought greg. Good stuff!

    1. Hi Andrew. You are right on both counts. I think we can learn that a focused concerted effort can get the job done. The goodness of God is worth this kind of effort. I’m on board with this.
