I came across this quotation today while reading a book by Tim Ferriss. That statement seems very applicable to our life in today's society. It has the potential to make people of faith pause for a moment to ponder their own spiritual journey. Are we, as individuals, more influneced by the Church or by the culture that surrounds us? Is the Church transforming culture, or is the culture transforming the Church?
It is evident that there is a great divide among people here in the United States. That divide is currently being expressed in a public way each Sunday through the National Football League. Unfortunately, it seems that division among the people of this land has infiltrated almost every aspect of society. The consequences of a nation being divided are being felt in numerous ways. If we are adjusting well to this new reality, it may not be a good sign for our own personal health and well-being.
The relevant question to be asked is a simple one. How will we stay faithful to Christ and His Church in a world that strives to entice and lure us into sin?
