 Theologian: Christians Should Ground Themselves in Scripture, Not Fads

CHICAGO – Christians need to recognize the primacy of Scripture in their lives and not be drawn to fads, a theologian told CP at the Pastorum Live conference this week.

Dr. Te-Li Lau, professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, told The Christian Post in an interview that, "If we lose the sense that scripture is authoritative for our lives, then we are going to be buffeted by every wind of the culture."

Another advantage to being grounded in scripture, Lau said, is that it helps unify Christians globally. Conversely, if Christian faith is grounded by issues unique to culture, then other Christians around the world will fail to identify with it.

Lau, who is from Singapore, noted that today Christianity is mostly centered in Asia and Africa.

"We need to be outward looking," Lau advised, not "thinking that America is the center of Christianity, because it's not."

Lau was one of the last speakers of the Pastorum Live conference, hosted by Logos Bible Software at Park Community Church in Chicago. The two-day conference ended on Wednesday.
