So, SO True!
Once again Doug Wilson flat out nails it on the head:

There is something pathetic about how many Christians try to relate to the worldliness and supposed urbanity of pop culture. Many of the Church's current problems in doctrine, ethics, theology, philosophy, and cultural analysis really amount to this -- a deep ache for respect from the world. And the way people try to get respect when they have this problem is through fawning and flattery.

If we ever want to make a Christian Culture that matters in any real sense, we MUST grasp this truth. Cultural engagement without cultural antithesis worthless, flavorless salt. That is to say it is no salt at all...
