The evolution of culture…

As cultures and nations evolve, they typically become more shame-based and less truth-based – and accepting cultural “norms” and not being rejected by your perceived peer group generally become more important than standing for truth.  And as this pressure to conform continues, Christians are much more likely to stop sharing the complete Gospel (especially the need to repent and be saved) — and are more and more likely to settle for merely improving people’s worldly situations (economically, politically, etc.), because this is less emotionally and culturally “risky”.  And at the same time, it is the greatest of tragedies.

“What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?” (Mark 8:36)
