Culture is religion externalized. How can Papua New Guinea´s many tribes with so many Christians now express their own tribal culture from a Biblical Framework? Reading, meditating, praying and studying God´s Holy word is a good place to start. Also coming to a clear understanding the doctrine of the Trinity, the Biblical One and the Many can help Papua New Guinea´s tribal peoples keep their unity as a nation-state and have the liberty to express their marvelous linguistic and cultural diversity. Only Biblical Christianity offers a philosophy of culture that permits UNITY with DIVERSITY. The Bible loves individualism from a Biblical point of view. Paul, Moses, Jeremiah and more recently Martyn Luther were all Biblical Individualists. But not like modern Western secular humanists who have made the liberty of individualism an excuse for license, sin and lawlessness. All cultures must examine their culture from the perspective of the Law-Word of God (Isaiah 2:1-4, 1 Timothy 1:5-11) and then be conformed to His ways and paths. But this will always permit the manifold (multifarious) wisdom and grace of God (Ephesians 3:10, 1 Peter 4:10) to be expressed through the many tribal cultures who are following Jesus the King and founder of all true culture.
