Worldly Culture

“When taken together, Romans 12:2 and 1 John 2:15-17 forbid the adoption of patterns of thinking, modes of behavior, attitudes, philosophies, outlooks, grids of evaluation, affections, gratifications, priorities, and value systems that are sinful and a manifestation of the world’s perverted understanding of what is true, good, and brings lasting happiness.
