One question this begs (see my most recent post) is what does one mean by “our”? Do Christians include ourselves in the larger culture in which we live, or do we define this away and try to explain ourselves in terms of a “Christian culture?”
This question takes me back more than a decade, when I was still in coursework for the PhD at Baylor. Once upon a time in a seminar, one of my fellow students went on at length about how the gospel of Jesus meant that he had more in common with a Christian in rural China than with a non-Christian who lived across the street from him.
In the words of Dave Barry, I’m not making this up!
