Each August I watch the VMA’s to get a better glimpse of the culture. Where it is and where it is going. This blog is some thoughts from Walk Mueller on the evening.
Culture is a map and a mirror. As a map, it guides us through life. . . telling us what to believe and how to live in the world. As a mirror, it reflects back to us things that we might pass over, ignore, or otherwise miss. While it’s much more complex than this, youth culture in its most basic sense maps out life for our kids. For those of us who are adults, it helps us see the maps our kids are following so that we can offer biblical affirmation or correctives where needed.
Sadly, most will watch and enjoy as it’s all been normalized. Many will watch and learn. . . then emulate. It is more over the top than ever. I feel grief. . . and a sense of urgency regarding telling kids the truth. . .”
