In America, we profess to be predominantly of Christian faith. But maybe that more accurately describes our origins. We come from a lineage of Christians. But many of us do not appear to be Christians. At least, we don’t act like it. And it’s not popular to be a Christian in our culture. It’s easy to look around us and see what is popular. Look at the magazines displayed along the checkout lines at the grocery stores. Consider the content airing on prime time television. Listen to the lyrics of the popular culture music. One of the biggest attractions on the Internet today is pornography. People dress provocatively. Fornication and adultery have become the cultural norm, and more people are experimenting with homosexuality. These things are popular. Striving to be good, pure, virtuous or righteous is not popular. It’s old fashion. And speaking against the things that are popular in our culture is not popular. If anyone speaks against these things, they are accused of being judgmental. But no one can decide on the fate of another. Everyone’s fate lies in the hands of God. He will judge our actions. Those who get caught up in what the popular culture is doing may be in for a big surprise. If you are a Christian, you should live according to God’s standards. Christians should remember that they are supposed to be in the world, not of the world. This holds true even if Christianity is unpopular.
