If you exist in a culture, you are subject to it. No exceptions.
On August 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave a speech that would go down in history as one of the greatest speeches of the 21st century. In it, he implored America to re-think the way it had treated African-Americans theretofore and plowed ahead using the language of unity and equality.
The most forgotten parts of that speech are the warnings.
I see a troubling trend in the Evangelical Christian community that I would like to address. What much of Evangelical Christianity focuses on and what members are willing to overlook does not seem in any way reflective of the character of Christ. Evangelicals seem to focus on two offenses to the exclusion of anything else: participation in an abortion or committing homosexual acts. The message seems to be that if any segment of society involves itself in either of these activities, God’s punishment will be exacted on all of society as a result. Condoning is tantamount to participation.
