In Genesis chapter 1, we read of the so-called “creation mandate” that was given as a command to Adam and Eve. Much of the language from that mandate is repeated after the flood in Genesis 9. Furthermore, many have connected it with the Great Commission in Matthew 28. But what about Abraham? Did that command change? And how does it apply to us today? This talk will help us understand better the connection of the “cultural mandate” with the church as the church, rather than with other institutions we may find in our society.
