Cultural Influences

Last week I was at church camp for the first time. I didn’t necessarily learn anything new, but I did still learn a LOT. I wrote notes, and I wrote notes on my notes. I’ve gone over and am ready to share some of what I’ve learned.

If you aren’t already familiar with the story of David’s affair with Bathsheba, go read 2 Samuel 11-12. Within the culture of the time, David was fully within his rights as a king, but God held him to a higher moral standard. Like in David’s time, our current culture accepts and covers many actions, but God is still the same. God holds us to His standard, not man’s standard. We humans constantly change our minds based on how we feel and what we think is right, but God has always held the truth. God is the one who sets the rules. As Christians, Jesus should be our culture.
