Occupying

Then he brought in that which was to his mind, reflective of the superiority of the Greeks. Thus language, architecture, learning, roads, postal service and currency was integrated or created based on the kingdom of Alexander- while simultaneously affirming the poets, songs, art, achievements of his conquered territory.

I think this is the model of Apostolic ministry in the earth. We should bring whatever is superior, from heaven, and replace or add it to culture. And we should celebrate and affirm all that man gets right about reflecting the ideals of the kingdom of heaven on earth.
