HOW DO YOU LIVE BIBLICALLY WHEN EVERYONE AROUND YOU ISN’T? Or a lot of people around you aren’t. In other words, how do you live a counter-cultural life? Good question, huh?

We are in the middle of a series on how to be a counter-cultural Christian. In this episode, Catherine offers six guidelines to help you and your kids swim upstream in our downstream culture.

At the end of life, all that matters is our faithfulness to God. Did we stand strong? Culture is always flowing downstream. Always has been. Always will. Did we go with the flow, or were we determined to swim the other way?

If we want to swim upstream, we need to:

(1) Know the Word
(2) Find encouragement in those who swam upstream before us.
(3) Question everything.
(4) Expect opposition and even persecution.
(5) Listen intently for God’s voice.
(6) Maintain an ETERNAL MINDSET

If we can do these things, and if we can teach our kids to do these things, we will be swimming the right way.
