Private Christianity???

Christianity must never be identified with our private version of it, still less with our own social and economic background, that we assume is right.

Being an Americian does not make us a Christian. 
Too many of us forget that point and assume that all Christians must look like us. 
 There are Christians all over the world and most of them are not 
Americans and can never be. But thanks to be God who saves us all, 
we are all united under God's care and we are all one in Christ.

A Christian may make his or her religion a kind of projection of what we know. How can we think that all Christanity has to be like the church we belong to?

In 1Corinthians 9:19-23 Paul writes that he became all things to win others to Christ. He tries to find common ground with everyone to bring them to Christ. We can take this to heart and accept that faith in Christ works in all cultures.
