How Is Today's Church Being Molded by the Culture?


Numerous Christian authors are now asking why many evangelical churches in the west look so much like the world contrary to the command of Romans 12:1-2. In spite of their honorable intentions to engage culture for the Gospel, evangelicals often undermine the effectiveness of their own message by not understanding culture. Although evangelicals have often stood against the basic philosophical features of non-Christian worldviews, at a practical level they have embraced much of what those non-Christian worldviews produced by way of pop culture. This talk looks at the social habits, fads, and trends to see how, when uncritically accepted by the church, they can be subversive to the Gospel message.
