Worldliness, War, and the Epistle of First John

“Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.” (1 John 2:15-17)

Skip Athey has a post on his blog entitled Culture War? that I think is well worth the read. In it, he writes:

The fact is, that most Christians are following the same patterns as the culture, though perhaps ten or fifteen years behind. Our model of family today doesn’t differ greatly from the model set forth by the feminists fifteen years ago. We are running a few years behind the secular humanist culture and we think we are doing well! Tragic!
