So If...

So if...

Relevance = Worldliness


Irrelevance = Scripturally Faithful


I know I'm overly simplifying the idea here, but I tend to balk at these cause and effect formulas. I agree in principle with the article's conclusion:

"...the way to fight this collapse into worldliness is a firm commitment to God’s Word..."

But, I struggle with the article's implication that cultural adaptation (relevance) is automatically incompatible with scriptural authority (or at least on the "slippery slope" towards incompatibility).
