Musings on Relevance

Relevance might be relative. Man, that sure messes things up. Let me explain.

Actually relevancy is good to a point. We should not try to be relevant in every area since relevancy does use culture to determine itself. Culture shifts. Therefore, as we are relevant to culture we must always be rooted in Biblical principles. The Biblical principle will guide us in knowing when culture has went TOO far and thus the church cannot shift accordingly.

We must be cautious of our relevance to a value that can change. The world changes. We can still be relevant but not if that means we have to go to the same depths as the world. I think the jeopardy some speak of is, when in our attempts to be relevant, we become LIKE the world even more so. This is a compromise, and not relevance.
