Christianity and popular culture are two major, yet opposing lifestyles for every Christian adolescent. The need to please God and look cool is a daily struggle most of the youth face, and the fear of being shunned, mocked, or isolated entirely haunts them; hence the choice for the latter. The author addresses various areas of pop culture including music, fashion, and social media and tries to juxtapose with God`s Word in the manual for Christians – The Bible, and outlines ways to deal with the “entanglement”.
Integrity should be a hallmark of every Christian. As Daniel kept his promise to never worship any other god than the Almighty, irrespective of the consequences, we must stand up to what is right and not just conform to the status quo. The marketplace – corporate environment, church, school, vicinity, etc present the greatest of life`s challenges especially when one decides to stand up to the right things of life. The author uses various characters and details how they lived lives of integrity in the face of extremely difficult circumstances and how those actions conform to our modern times.
