As a believer everything around you should reflect your beliefs that you’re Christian. Develop a culture or behaviour that represents who you’re and the people with whom you share those beliefs and practices with. Society and culture are intertwined, none exists without the other and yourself also can’t do without them.
You don’t exist in a vacuum, join a group in order to survive. Remember the word of our Lord Jesus Christ, “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:20). And Hebrews 10:25, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is ; but exhorting one another : and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”
The reason we live together is because almost every human behaviour is learned and adopted from other people of the same society. For instance the way people view marriage depends largely on what they’ve been brought up or taught. Behaviour based on learned custom is not a bad thing. Even Jesus, “when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.” (Luke 2:42). Galatians 4:1-6 says, “Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.”
But as Christian believers we’ve our own cultural ideals consisting of our ideas, attitudes and beliefs. That observe and do because those are the values that make up our Christian faith. As a Christian you should know those elements and forces that shape up our culture, society or faith. Probably let’s discuss these next time so that you won’t follow every wind of doctrine.
Good nyt folks,
