Many religions and some forms of Christianity believe and teach a sacred/spiritual split in life. They limit their religion solely to the spiritual dimension of life and live by another set of ethics in the material world where they don't believe their faith applies. American missionaries often carried this view abroad and the result was a limited Gospel that did not address cultural redemption. The Christian faith addresses all facets of life and that includes the cultural and life issues one encounters in the material world. Nancy Pearcey discusses this view in the video clip below.
