Cult - ure

What's the difference between a cult and a culture?

From modern vernacular a cult is a crazy something on the fringe of society that the general population isn't too sure about.  A culture is what a society produces, embodies, and (for lack of a better word) "is."

Is our job as followers of Christ to be a cult or to change the culture?

Maybe we should be a little bit of both: We shouldn't be afraid of being "weird" and we should also  seek to change our world.

I think the trouble comes when we focus on creating/maintaining/sustaining a Christian culture instead of just living the way Christ called us, even if that way feels a little weird to other folks.

Those three little letters (u.r.e.) make quite the change don't they?
