Waitsel's Christian Culture

Can you have Christian Culture without culture wars? I believe so. Culture is just an extension of a society. If that society has Christian values, their culture will reflect it. Culture influences upcoming generations. If we want our children to have values worth passing on, we have to embrace those values and communicate them through our culture. Values cannot exist in a vacuum nor in a hostile environment. They have to be nurtured in a culture that is friendly towards them. The purpose of this website is to help grow and protect such an environment. Contact me with comments and ideas for stories you'd like to see. - Waitsel
