Non-Writing Related: The Effect of Society on a Christian

This is just a theory in progress that I came up with, so it may or may not be solid. In short: the worse society is, the better Christians have to be. In the Victorian Era, most of the people were pretty decent people, with their awesome clothes and carriages and gloves and dueling. Being a Christian in that time only meant that you went to church and showed love and kindness to everyone.

Today, it’s much harder. When every third word out of the average person’s mouth is a cuss word, when ‘teasing’ and ‘playing around’ is common, Christians have to be paragons of virtue in order to make an impression. One slip and you lose a lot of credibility.

Yeah. Just a thought I had. Society is in a sad, sad place right now…
