How should Christians respond to pop culture that contradicts biblical teaching?
A recent CHRISTIANITY TODAY article by Darrell Bock raises the issue of when and how Christians should react to popular cultural notions that flagrantly contradict Scripture. Should Christians attack false theories, engage in dialogue with the wider culture, or keep our distance? This study addresses these questions and examines how we should live as Christians in the world around us.

--Teaching point one: God made the world, and everything God made is good.
--Teaching point two: Due to human sin, the world is willfully rebellious against God. As such, it stands under God's judgment.
--Teaching point three: In spite of the world's sin, God still loves the world. In fact, he sent his Son into the world, not to condemn it but to redeem it.
--Teaching point four: Jesus' disciples are to live in the world, yet not love the world's sinful and rebellious ways.
--Teaching point five: Jesus' disciples are to be salt and light in the world, preaching the gospel, making disciples, and teaching them to observe the teachings of Jesus.
