Romans 10:17-18 (NASB) – So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. But I say, surely they have never heard, have they?
Indeed they have; “Their voice has gone out into all the earth, And their words to the ends of the world.”
GODLY LIVING, IN AN UNGODLY WORLD (Titus 2:11-14)Bruce McLain, March 31, 2019
Part of the GUEST SPEAKERS series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Since Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden, God’s people have often lived their lives in cultures dominated by ungodliness. Many Old Testament saints lived in godless societies that were diametrically opposed to their religious values. It was true in the time of the New Testament when Christians lived in the Roman culture and it is true of believers today who find themselves in many different cultures with varying degrees of animosity toward Christianity.
The Bible in its entirety helps us know how to navigate as God’s people in an ungodly world. There are some texts that address the issue directly, such as Titus 2:11-14.

11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. (KJV)
