Their land is also full of idols; they worship the work of

          their own hands, that which their own fingers have made.

                     (Isaiah 2:8)


Conscientious Christians should make an honest assessment of their culture. This would suggest that they should evaluate what everyone else reads, along with the lyrics of every form of secular music. The reality is simply that Christians can live in a culture and country claiming God but not know the God whom they claim. In our society, God becomes whatever is needed, whether it’s the god of capitalism, humanism, or secularism. But what’s really needed is for people to recognize that God is the creator, sustainer, redeemer, and keeper of all human existence.
