Cultural obstacles are formidable barriers, yet the Word of God is powerful to transform the mind of man and teach him God’s way. We know that. We experience that in our own life, when God’s Word cuts to the heart of our own American cultural barriers and shows us how much higher His Way is than ours. But how can we share the powerful, life transforming words of Truth if they have not been translated into the hearer’s language? How can we explain profound spiritual concepts if our grasp of their language at best allows us to exchange information about material things and concrete actions? It’s like holding pure, life-giving water in your hands and not being able to transfer that cup of water into the hands of a thirsty person in front of you.
We have to learn to communicate!
