Countercultural Christianity

Doug Groothuis has an excellent post on theconstructivecurmudgeon about what it means for a Christian to be truly countercultural. 

He asks: “Do we have any sense of “Christian counterculture” today? One wonders. The pressures of conformity are massive, given mass and niche media. Biblical illiteracy is high; biblical behavior is low. Christians are far too much like everyone else when they should be different. … We must be against the world, for the world, under the Lordship of Christ (1 John 2:15-17; Romans 12:1-2). Otherwise, the salt has lost its savor.”

Doug offers a list of 10 requirements for a believer to be truly countercultural. Check it out here. I’d love to hear what you think about his list.
