The topics of how Christians should interact with the wider culture, and how much should contemporary society be influenced by Christian values, have always been matters of much debate. These “culture wars” erupt whenever there is public debate over moral and social issues. Rising above the principled arguments from both sides, Dr. Franklin Pyles, President of the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada, wrote an excellent article for the November 2010 edition of Table Talk, a bulletin insert for Canadian Alliance churches. It is titled On Culture and Communities, and is a must-read.
