Cross Culture?

This morning’s meeting with the Moroccan pastor was interesting.  During the course of one of our conversations in the past months some questions arose about discipleship and whether God intends all believers to be disciples.
Are people really all that different in other cultures?  Thoughts at DTTB.
To answer that we looked at all of the passages in the bible in which the word “disciple” appears.  We went through them last week and made observations.  This morning we discussed what we found.

The conclusion was that discipleship is expected of all believers.  Some of the keys to that were Matthew 28:18 – 20 and Acts 11:26, among others.

During the conversation the pastor explained that there are a lot of Moroccans who want to be called Christian who are not interested in discipleship.  They are more interested in being in the group that actually developing a relationship with Christ (there is more to this but I will hold off on that until tomorrow).

So people who claim the label Christian who are not in the least bit interested in growing in their relationship with Christ.  No we do not have anybody like that in the States.  Must be a cultural Moroccan problem, right?
