when bad contextualization happens to good people

In dealing with international circles, one is readily made aware that there are a number of ways of going about the business of cross cultural ministry.  The purpose of contextualization is to present Christ in the receptor culture in such a way that he is accepted or rejected on the basis of his true person and work and not on the basis of the presentation or the presenter.  Contextualization can go wrong in two ways.  The first is when the evangelist does not go far enough; the second, is when he goes too far.  I don't know which one the following video is.  I will let you be the judge.

Please don't hate me...
