When Worlds Collide

The media-driven world places enormous pressure on people to conform to its secular point of view—and young people are especially susceptible to this ploy. Writing to a student audience, authors Mike and Daniel Blackaby (the grandsons of Experiencing God author Henry Blackaby) explain how Christians typically respond to this pressure in one of three ways, assigning names for each group: “Cave-Ins” are Christians who accept the world’s values and compromise their faith or abandon it altogether. “Cave-Dwellers” are believers who fear the world and seek to insulate themselves from it and its influence as much as possible. “Colliders” are the Christians who remain true to their faith yet effectively engage the world and are used by God to change peoples’ lives.
