Tim Keller, from Redeemer Church and Ministries, addresses the question, “Should Christians be involved in shaping culture?”, explaining that it is vital to keep God and his grace central in culture. Looking at history, Keller illustrates the problems that will arise if this is not the case.
"...when Christians work in the world, they will either assimilate into their culture and support the status quo or they will be agents of change. This is especially true in the area of work. Every culture works on the basis of a ‘map’ of what is considered most important. If God and his grace are not at the center of a culture, then other things will be substituted as ultimate values. So every vocational field is distorted by idolatry."
