In Social Questions
I was recently wondering about the relationship between changing society and the adaptation of the church. Obviously the core tenants of Christianity stay the same generation to generation, but how can we figure out changing worship styles, church designs, and congregation formats to attract younger generations? I'm drawn to Paul in Corinthians: "For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a slave to all, that I might win the more. 20 And to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might win Jews; to those who are under the Law, as under the Law, though not being myself under the Law, that I might win those who are under the Law; 21 to those who are without law, as without law, though not being without the law of God but under the law of Christ, that I might win those who are without law. 22 To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak; I have become all things to all men, that I may by all means save some. 23 And I do all things for the sake of the gospel, that I may become a fellow partaker of it." 1 Corinthians 9:19–23 What do you think the context and application of this is?
