  1. April 5, 1998 AD Christianity in the Market Place Christianity and Culture, C.S. Lewis, 1940 ( Theology, Vol. XL (March 1940) Questions for Discussion (Culture (*): Food, Poison or Medicine? Low or High Activity?) 1 - What is the place (and value) of culture in the life of the Christian? 2 - If culture is a thing of so little value, how are we justified in spending so much of our life on it? 3 - Is culture necessary for the enlightenment of the soul? 4 - Does culture make us more sensitive and likely to be saved? 5 - Is the New Testament hostile to culture (Phil.3:8; 1 Co. 3:18)? 6 - What about St. Augustine, Aristotle, Plato, Thomas Aquinas, Thomas a Kempis, Milton, Newman,? 7 - Can the cultural / academic life be a Christian calling? 8 - Can we convert the heathen neighbors without knowing their culture? 9 - Why is the freedom proposed by Milton intolerable by the Christian? 10 - Can culture help us to be better Christians? 11 - Is culture harmless or even neutral? Can it be abused? 12 - Can culture give us pleasure in a normative way? What is the goodness of culture? 13 - Can we conciliate the values of Christianity and Culture? 14 - Is any road out of Jerusalem also a road to Jerusalem? 15 - What are the dangers of culture ( in the romantic / sehnsucht sense)? 16 - Can culture help to bring certain souls to God? What is the condition of America in 1998? 17 - Has culture any part to play in the life of the Christian? 18 - How should we then consider culture: food, poison, or medicine? 19 - Christianity is a culture in itself - the culture of permanent values! 20 - The Gospel commands us to bring culture (every thought) captive to Christ (the cultural mandate)!
