It has been wisely said that “ideas have consequences.” Our particular contribution to the ongoing spiritual and cultural transformation of Latin America is to research, identify, and expose:
- The cultural assumptions – there are many unexamined cultural assumptions regarding the nature of marriage, family, church, education, business, and government that fall short of God’s best. Semilla identifies and exposes these unbiblical assumptions and offers the authentic presuppositions of a Biblical worldview.
- The historical context – when Latin American Christian thinkers and leaders gather to serve their continent, Semilla is often called upon to provide the overarching historical and spiritual background of the discussion, thus providing an indigenous and true-to-life framework for addressing the current issues with deeper insight.
- The call to true transformation – activism alone cannot transform a culture, but must be continually reinforced by a call to pursue integrity at every level. Semilla sees transformation as flowing from healthy relationships, beginning with covenantal marriage and family. Thus personal and relational transformation later can become corporate, regional, national, and continental, paving the way to cultural transformation.
