“...I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings” (1 Corinthians 9:22-23).Conclusion
If a congregation is wise in their approach to outreach and practice they will find ways to be as culturally relevant as they can be without compromising the Truth. Tolerating sin under the guise of being "relevant" is wrong and will always be. Neglecting to teach the Truth in order to "reach more" is actually reaching less. Culture is not bad, the church needs to work to find ways to mold and shape its expedient actions and practices in ways to best reach the society in which it exists.
