Culture Shock

Sometimes I’ll tell you what, I am downright surprised about what I find in youth culture. The things that were “bad” in my youth such as The Simpsons, Cheers, Married with Children and Metallica are now pretty mild in comparison. Our teens see old shows like that as pretty mild and acceptable in their own lives! New shows like, How I Met Your Mother, South Park and Family Guy have taken over the airwaves and they are more edgy. Musicians sing about orgies, lesbianism, drugs and alcohol like they are normal ways of life. This new culture has taken liberty to a whole new level and I wonder if there won’t be a new move toward Puritanism is the near future.

In the Bible we are called to be in the world, but not of the world.
