The Christian who thinks that one must be like culture
in order to positively influence culture is sadly ignorant
of history, the true substance of conversion, and the clear teaching of the Bible.
“Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:1,2 — NASB)
