Christ. Culture. Neil Diamond

"There has never been a more... time than now." Hyperbole? Yes, but as our experience of serving Christ in culture changes, hyperbole is one coping technique. For many of us, it FEELS like it's harder than ever to walk faithfully with Jesus. But the truth is, there have been many... disintegrating cultures, more divided countries, polarized politics, and challenging times to be a Christian. The reality is that every place, every time, every person has presented unique challenges to the gospel and unique reflections of God's common grace. We, like all churches throughout the centuries and across the globe, need to hear Peter's powerful reminder to some of the first generation of Christians of who we are, where we are, and how we are to live Christ-centered lives in an "I"-centered culture.
