Living as a follower of Christ in Corinth was an arduous task. The cultural influence of immorality of the culture around them oftentimes caused the church to live in a state of compromise, and they found themselves indulging in the sexual immorality that the Scripture had condemned so clearly. Their excuse was that everyone else was doing it, so why shouldn’t they? If they were going to reach their culture, shouldn’t they understand it, live in it and participate in it? The problem is, their culture had sucked them into corruption and they lost all biblical distinction. So what does it mean for us? In a culture similar to Corinth, how do we live in a way that is distinct and yet embraces our culture with a view of trying to win them to Christ? We have blurred the lines of holiness all too often and it’s time for the church to stand up, to be distinct and to recognize that just because everyone else is doing it doesn’t mean we should.
