There is only one thing that has the power of God unto the salvation of man and that is the Gospel. The Gospel does not seek to transform culture. It is entirely indifferent to culture, as was Jesus. The church is the shining city on a hill because of the Gospel. Not because of some jacked-up moral code that we have gleaned is best for America. Our job is not to convict. Our job is not to give the increase. Those are the jobs of God. The problem is that over the past few decades the church has strived hard to become like the world. Through the purpose driven, seeker friendly theories of growth that eschew the Gospel for relevance we have created a church that cannot be differentiated from the world. This apostate church enjoys great privilege, honor and wealth within the machine they have cultivated. It is easy to see why they worship this world and this country. So coming back to the discussion that started all of this, a true biblical worldview is that this world is passing away. We are not of this world, despite whatever people like Gary DeMar want to sell you. You cannot escape the key verses nor even the life Christ led while on earth. Do not fall for the NAR dominionism that so corrupts the church today. This world is not our home. If it were, by default we would be going to hell. Get back to the Gospel while we still have time.
