A tension rubs against us when we so desperately want to fit in with the culture, but we perpetually fail. Could that tension be like iron sharpening iron?

Perhaps the tension remains because we should desire the things of God, not the things of this world. Is that truth a reality for us? Not always. Is it ideal? Yes.

So if the post-modern culture says, "If it works, then it's true" . . . where does that leave us? I think we need to revisit God's idea of culture starting today!

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rains came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against the house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock."
-Jesus, Matthew 7:24-25
