As followers of Jesus Christ we will often have a strong sense that we are going against the flow of popular culture. If we do not let God's Self-disclosure shape our understanding of current issues we will find ourselves swept away by that current, or flailing to combat the flow or hiding in the trees along the shore, hanging on for dear life. None of these responses represent the dignity and destiny of "God's elect - holy and beloved" who have been called and empowered "to walk in a manner worthy of God who calls you into his own kingdom and glory." The church is "the pillar and ground of the truth" - so let's rise up and be the church which has a solid foundation to be "the light of the world."
