Culture is never so bad that it can’t be redeemed, nor so good that it can’t be critiqued. (Timothy Keller, popular preacher and writer)
We are often distressed by the degradation of modern society as reflected in coarse language, suggestive media productions, political intrigue, not to mention violence. A return to civility must begin with repentance and transformation of heart and soul. Even where a better level of integrity exists, there is room for introspection and improvement.
Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace (2 Corinthians 13:11). Live in harmony with one another. As far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone (Romans 12:16, 18).
