Problem

Culturally biased religion

Other Names:
Eurocentric religion
Claim:
Ecumenical texts remain typically western documents, rooted in the old cultural traditions of Roman Catholicism, Orthodoxy and Protestantism of the European continent. They present a rather stale, anachronistic, lopsided and introverted theological charter of unity of the western hemisphere. Their language, style and reasoning are based on traditional theological argumentation, hardly understandable to any non-European Christians with minimal catechetical instruction. Christianity in the First World has still to demonstrate that it is open to and can learn from missionary and independent churches which differently interpret the being and nature of the Church according to their own cultural heritage and experience.
