Cultural Christians are usually born into people groups that for the most part, share the Christian faith. They live around the world, but in Southeast Asia, you can often find them in places missionaries reached a long time ago. Sometimes, after the majority of a group decides to follow Jesus, their faith fades after many years. The people only pass down the title of “Christian” to their children instead of their passion for Christ. That is how cultural Christianity begins.
Cultural Christians may or may not go to church or know much about God or Jesus. They never decided to follow Christ, but believe He is their God because He is the God of their parents or their culture. Cultural Christians often believe that the point of their religion is to become a good person instead of living your life in the service of Jesus. They also rarely see the need to tell other people about Christ.
