Our Changing Culture and Christianity

A few weeks ago, I was talking with some pastors in England. In spite of the fact that Britain has been outpacing the United States in the usual signs of secularization, one of the pastors said that developments in the last couple years, even in Britain, have had a new effect on people in the church. It seems now to many believers that true Christians hold views so different from the culture that they wonder if anyone can be converted.

I think this is a common feeling. Will deeply secular people, with little or no Christian background, see the moral implications of following Christ as so unimaginable that they treat Christianity as equivalent to the Greek myths of Zeus and Hermes?

Here are three biblical perspectives that make that kind of pessimism unwarranted in the church…

Eclectics in renderings, prose and poetry, rhyme and free verse. More info available in 'About Me' in my 'Hiding in Plain Site.' There is a small square box with three little dots inside, on the upper right hand side of every blog posted page,at the right side of title banner. Click on those dots to take you to a "hidden" site page with more info provided by me, including "follow" button and "About me." (I didn't design this.It came as-is). Also, WP has a mandatory banner at the bottom of the screen about privacy and cookies policy that blocks the visibility of a "follow" button that pops up under a "close and accept' of the privacy agreement. You must click the 'close and accept' to see the follow button. Things are becoming more complicated to navigation with hidden activations and complex instructions.

  1. Every Christian is a first generation Christian and faith depends upon the Holy Spirit’s calling and not on traditions. God doesn’t give us a spirit of fear and we should not allow fear to overtake us in the face of secularism. It is the culture born out of hearts hardened toward God and the consequences of it may melt some of those hard hearts. Either way, God’s work will be completed, for His glory and our greater good.—-Thank you for posting this to encourage Christians who feel marginalized. As the world is today, marginalized is a better place to be.:0)
