  19. 19. Naming & culture: God-given freedom counts against seeing culture as inherently or fundamentally evil, and for valuing of diversity (and so against 'one culture'). In fact, given we 'image' God socially, this implies the bonds of culture are part of being in God's image, and so 'it is good'.
