Culture mediates relations between Christian principles, beliefs or norms, and reality. Tied closely to language, culture is crucial to the work of relating Christianity to reality. Since cultures vary and change, Christian worldviews will differ according to location and time. Without a viable culture, Christianity cannot be related to daily reality and will be misunderstood or misused.
