Should We Concern Ourselves With What's Going on in American Culture?
From the Show
Should we as Christians concern ourselves with what is going on in American culture?
Christians need to be more thoughtful, I think, even, for example, just about social media. It's not just the content, but the medium itself; not to throw it out but to ask, how are my habits changing, how am I becoming less hospitable, how am I becoming angrier, how am I becoming more individualistic and narcissistic, do I get out enough, am I with people who are not like me, people who don't think like I do, am I too quick to speak and not slow to listen? On the other hand, how can social media help us reach more people for Christ? [Just think] about things at a deeper level than if it is R rated or G rated, you know; are there four-letter words or not, is it artwork that we find beautiful or is artwork that disturbs us, and so forth. We're [already] immersed in the culture, the question really is, are we immersed in the Word of God so that we can analyze what we experience every day and take for granted? In the soup that we live in, are we able to evaluate it, or are we like a frog in the kettle slowly boiling without even realizing it? — Michael Horton
