Conform culture to fit the Bible.
Or conform the Bible to fit the culture?

by Joel Ramshaw (2022)

It seems like anytime a major trend goes on in the world, we Christians are the followers and not the leaders. It didn't use to be this way. Remember the era where the majority of anti-slavery activism was done by Christians and preachers and the Christian nation Britain banned it entirely? We invented hospitals for the sick and institutional charity for the poor. We were once the leaders and now the followers. Now the world comes up with heavy metal music and we want to "christianize" it by inserting “god” a couple times in the lyrics so we have "christian heavy metal." The world invents tattoos and we rush to pollute our flesh, ignoring the words that our body is the temple of the Lord. The world begins worshipping gays and churches now want to ordain gay ministers and cherrypick bible verses out of context to support it just so they can fit in with the world. If you teach a Bible verse that disagrees with anyone's lifestyle, rather than obey and repent they spout the words “judge not.” It seems the only two verses many Christians know are “judge not” and “love your neighbor as yourself.” Sure those are good verses, but its not a replacement for living according to the Word. Also, it seems that any person who promotes a biblical view will have immediate (attacking) comments from liberal Christians who are embarrassed of their faith and the Bible and who just want to fit in with the world. Question is how many of us actually believe the words of Christ and the apostles, and how many just see it as a burden and annoyance?

Luke 9:26 "For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels."
