The example of Christian martyrs under the Roman Empire leads us to see that culture-making is an expression of worship, and that culture wars are won and lost first in the spiritual realm. The Christian's calling is not to cultural retreat, but to transform culture in obedience to God's revealed word.
Christ and Culture
Culture is inescapably religious and therefore it cannot be neutral. Defying all opposition, Christ's transforming power is re-making individuals and redeeming every area of life in terms of his kingdom purposes.
