A recent post on Facebook showed the New Your City skyline in 1956 with crosses illuminated on many of the buildings at Easter. It was a beautiful sight. The caption was, “There would probably be an uproar today.”
There is no doubt that our culture has changed.
In fact, it has been changing at an alarming rate, and in ways that we never could have imagined only a few decades ago. Being a Christian in the midst of this cultural revolution is not easy. The realities of a changing morality and ever increasing social problems face us as believers at every turn.
What are we to do?
How do we stay true to the Bible, while not alienating and rejecting the world that Jesus came to redeem? How are we supposed to act as Biblical Christians in the changing world in which we live? Fortunately, Jesus and the New Testament writers did not leave us without instruction.
Over the next several weeks, we will be looking at some of the cultural issues of our day, what Scripture has to say about them, and how Biblical Christianity can address them in a redeeming way. Now is the time for the church to be clear, both on what we believe and on the beauty of the gospel! Seeing crosses on the skyline is beautiful. What is even more beautiful is the cross shining through His people!
