The Problem With the Culture Argument

There are many things in the Bible that we do not adhere to in today’s church.  We do not teach them as commands.  We don’t encourage people to follow them.  We try to ignore that they are even in the Bible.  And we do this because they are counter-cultural and inconvenient.

And this is part of the reasons that Christians aren’t taken seriously.  I can’t tell you how many conversations I have gotten into with unbelievers that follow this basic order:

  • We’ve all sinned and the Bible defines sin.
  • The Old Testament says that you shouldn’t do XYZ.
  • You do XYZ.
  • Aren’t you sinning?

And then after trying to get out of that one, the real fun begins.

Are You Outnumbered?

According to the latest American Community survey reported in the New York Times, married couples now account for 49.7% of the living arrangements that people are having today.  The study itself shows a rise in both the number of people that are cohabitating and those that are same sex couples.

Of greater concern than the number of same sex couples should be the number of cohabitating couples and what our society is doing to encourage this behavior.
