Wondering How Much the Bible Really Impacts Modern-Day Culture? The Answer Might Surprise You

Published

If you’re a Christian and you’ve flipped on the TV or opened up Facebook at all over the last several years, you’re probably of the impression that the culture at large has completely and totally abandoned the God of the Bible and the universal truth contained in the Scripture.

It’s not hard to see why someone might believe that. We now live in a world where Christians are persecuted for their beliefs over refusing to bake a cake. Where boys can pretend to be girls and gain access to the ladies room and where homosexuals parade around the streets in their underwear claiming to be “married” in the sight of the state.

It’s tough times for believers. Truly.

However, you might be surprised to find that pop culture simply cannot escape the influence of its ultimate Creator.

Ilena Madraso, content manager at the Museum of the Bible, recently told PureFlix.com’s “Pure Talk” that it is “kind of surprising” to see references to Scripture deeply embedded in our modern culture.

“The Bible has had such a large influence on so much of the world,” Madraso said.

“You wouldn’t think it was the Bible, and then it hits you,” she said.

From ex-NFL star Tim Tebow’s famous eye black featuring “John 3:16” to more random connections such as model Heidi Klum’s decision to dress like an apple and serpent for Halloween — a clear reference to the Adam and Eve narrative in Genesis — the Museum showcases where the Bible and culture have intersected.

“Music has such a rich history with having the Bible influence it,” Madraso added, noting that there are some truly surprising references such as rapper Coolio’s 1995 hit, “Gangsters Paradise.” The song has its roots in Psalm 23, with lyrics referencing the “valley of the shadow of death.”

“It’s really fun to find things that are hidden in plain sight,” Madraso said. “Themes, characters, and quotes — things that we even say in our everyday life. We have many of those things displayed here.”

There’s a mistaken belief by many well meaning Christians who tend to think the realm of pop culture and politics aren’t of interest to God, that the only business of the faithful is to preach the gospel and nothing else.

However, that’s not what God’s mission for His church is really all about. You see, Jesus is King of every area of life, arts, entertainment, and politics included. The first folks to receive the Holy Spirit in Scripture were artists, thus, these things matter to God.

Our job is to make disciples, which includes the gospel obviously, but it doesn’t stop there. It goes beyond that to teaching people how to obey the commands of the Lord and apply them to every area of their lives.

We are to be about the business of pressing the crown rights of Jesus Christ into every part of our culture. We cannot do that by sitting on the sidelines. Get back in the game, church!

What a horrible thing to say!

We’re just over two weeks into the new year and we already have a quote that may hold up as the most ridiculous of 2021. Remember, this guy was elected to office. What does that say about the people who voted for him? It’s because of people like Goofy McGoofball in the clip below that America has become such a liberal cesspool. During a Monday appearance on CNN, McGoofball said, “You know I was thinking, the Guard is 90 some-odd percent male. Only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden. You’ve got to figure that in the Guard, which is predominantly more conservative…there are probably not more than 25 percent of the people that are there protecting us that voted for Biden. The other 75 percent are in the class that would be in the large class of folks who might want to do something. There were military people and police who took oaths to defend the Constitution, who didn’t do it and were in the insurrection. So it does concern me.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1351196676036435972?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351196676036435972%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-democrat-argues-national-guard-members-who-voted-for-trump-may-be-a-threat-to-bidens-safety%2F From The Daily Wire: Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) added to the already deep divide in our nation during a online meeting with constituents in San Francisco on Saturday, claiming the Trump supporters who breached the Capitol on Wednesday chose their “whiteness over democracy.” Pelosi said, “When that assault was taking place on the Capitol, 3,865 people in our country died of the coronavirus, many of them people of color because of the injustice of it all. The next day, on Thursday, 4,000 people died of the coronavirus. Why? Because decisions were made at the highest level, months before in the Oval Office, of denial, distortion, delay, calling it a ‘hoax.’” She added, “I thought it was going to be an epiphany for…

WATCH: Melania Trump Delivers Powerful & Moving Farewell Message As First Lady

Gorgeous, as always!

She wasn’t unbearable like Hillary Clinton. She wasn’t as polarizing as Michelle Obama. But because she is married to Donald Trump, Melania Trump is the worst first lady in American history. That’s how the mainstream media will remember the woman who speaks five languages fluently; the former model whose mere presence is a sight for sore eyes. FLOTUS’s farewell message is one that should be replayed for decades to come. From New York Post: First lady Melania Trump on Monday released a nearly seven-minute farewell message urging Americans to choose “love over hatred” and “peace over violence.” The video filmed at the White House was posted to Twitter fewer than 48 hours before President Trump leaves office Wednesday at noon. “As Donald and I conclude our time in the White House, I think of all the people I have taken home in my heart and their incredible stories of love, patriotism and devotion,” she said.
