The Bible is Always Anti-Culture

The Bible has always been “Anti-Culture”. In the Old Testament when it was preposterous for women to anything more than cook, the Bible had Deborah and Jael who, despite being women, did great things for God.

In the New Testament when everything was about law and order and revenge and hating romans, Jesus came along and taught us to forgive and forget, again something that was outside of the culture of the time.

In today’s world (21st century) the new “motto” is: “To be all that you that you can be”, and “the world we have made for ourselves”. Once again the Bible has something to say that is quite the opposite: I can do all things through CHRIST who strengthens me. In the past people realised that there was something bigger than themselves, but nowadays people deny the fact that there is something bigger, they are too focused on themselves.

Who knows what the culture will be in the future, but I’m sure the Bible will have something to say about it.
