Edwin McManus writes concerning three different ways Christians interact with the secular world. 1. Christians completely run away from the culture, separating as much as possible, in order to not be tainted by the world, and, thus, be as safe as possible. 2. Christians completely envelop themselves in the world, making them feel as safe as possible. 3. Christians use the culture of the gospel to influence the culture in a positive way. To do this, the Christian must know and understand that culture in order to most effectively influence them to learn and know Jesus Christ. McManus states (and I agree) that the third option is the one that we have been called as Christians to be. He cites Jesus who dined with the prostitutes, the tax collectors, and the demoniacs. He mentions Phillip who has a long and deep conversation with the Ethiopian eunuch. He also talks about Paul who could speak to the Jews in the temple using their language and understanding, and this shift to speaking to the Greeks in their temple and reason. McManus calls this living the barbatian Christian life - that is, a life that is not safe. He asks the poignant question, "Are you as a Christian willing to give up your life if it meant that one Islamic person would be saved?" He also asks, "Are you willing to get to know the most deviant of humanity if it were to mean that he or she would learn to love Jesus Christ?" This question was posted earlier, and enda commented that, personally, number one is correct. Christians should be completely separated. From my understanding, those who would agree with number one would be most likely to be anti- praise and worship music. Those who would agree with number three would understand clearly how GOd can use such music to glorift His name.
