Do Not Be Conformed
More cultural wisdom from Doug Wilson:

We are not just entertained by our amusements, we are shaped by them. If those entertainments are worldly, the world behind them is working energetically to press us into its mold, and to make us conform to its wisdom.


But we want to come to worship God according to His Word. This means that we should frequently find our worldly assumptions affronted, sometimes insulted, and always challenged. Receive such challenges – such admonitions are oil upon the head. Remember that the kisses of an enemy are profuse – your entertainments are flattering you with countless lies. But faithful are the wounds of a friend. The worship of God in the beauty of holiness is the true friend of sinners.

Are you wounded by your worship?
