The Two Mandates
What is the relationship between the "Cultural Mandate" and the "Great Commission"? This is being discussed over at Gideon Strauss' blog. David Koyzis gives and answer from Paul Marshall. And see this discussion I had a couple of years ago with poet Aaron Belz.

In short, I argue, that the whole point of the Great Commission is to make disciples who will fulfill the cultural mandate - part of what it means "to observe all that I have commanded."
