Making Disciples in the 7 Mountains of Culture
Jesus told us, the Church, to go into all the nations to make disciples, Matthew 28:19, Jesus said to His disciples, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.” Bill Bright, with Campus Crusade, shared some great insight on our culture and broke it down into seven spheres of culture, which can be called mountains. And these Mountains of Culture can be found in every nation! God has called us to make disciples in each mountain and we call each mountain: Government, Family, Business, Media, Religion(Faith), Education, and Arts and Entertainment. It seems that there is much darkness in every part of our culture. When there are true disciples in each mountain then people who are actually doing what God has called us to do will transform their mountain and as true disciples are raised up each mountain will become healthy again. We may not be called to change the world, but we are meant to win the world to Jesus Christ by sharing the Good News, one by one, to those around us in our daily lives. America was founded by people who had a desire to follow God. America is based on all our rights coming from God. We need to ask God how we can impact each mountain of culture and how to impact the mountain we are currently in. At VFN Kingdom Business, VFNKB, we have mountain meetings to help you learn to impact your mountain and you can also stand with VFNKB and partner with us to help impact each mountain and the world! We want to hear from you and what you think about these mountains of culture.

God uses broken people to further His Kingdom, you can read our stories at Meet My Father to see that no one is perfect. We need to join together in unity as the Church to further God’s Kingdom in each of these mountains of culture. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a great example as a leader who joined together thousands of people in unity to help with the Civil Rights Movement. Dr. King had each of the participants who walked with him to sign an agreement to 10 commitments, so they were all in unity. In an interview with CBN, Reverend Jessie Douglas shares some of his personal stories while walking with Dr. King. As we are seeing the same rising tensions in America today, CBN asks Reverend Douglas how they carried this out. “The approach that you talk about with non-violence, with a Christian perspective, how did you get people convinced to go that route when it goes against human nature?” Reverend Douglas responds by saying, “Well, the persons who participated, had to sign papers promising that they would not violate our non-violent procedure of demonstration.” He continues by saying, ‘Dr. King got us to realize that hate only provokes hate and violence only provokes violence and love is the greatest force on Earth.’
At VFNKB we carry on these 10 commitments with small adjustments for today’s culture. You can stand in agreement with all those who are standing up for God by going to Civil Christianity.org. When you have done everything to stand, all you can then do is stand. Be encouraged and know that as you stand for what is right and walk in love you are furthering the Kingdom of God! We want to hear from you and what you think about this.
