Copycating contemporary culture — shouldn’t we take a higher view than monkey see, monkey do? Rather than taking rides on society’s hot and trendy tides, shouldn’t Christ’s followers be on His side and go against the tide?
According to Jesus, His followers are to be “in the world, but not of the world.” To quote Paul of Tarsus: “”Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” They aren’t supposed to be compromised and sold-out to society’s values.
Believers are not called to copycat contemporary culture; believers are challenged to live a countercultural lifestyle. Will you?
