Modern day common philosophy teaches us that our faith is a private matter not to be shared in the public sphere, or be labeled "intolerant" or what seems to be the favorite derogatory word nowadays ... "bigot".
In order to grow and be genuine as a person, one must reflect and sit with how they could personally infuse their faith "into" the culture as they are not opposing forces. Let us welcome all of our experiences and direct them towards the truth, goodness, and the light.
I refrain against the word used popularly in Christianity today "Anomaly" because it suggests that we are some sort of "glitch" in the system, or "against" it.
Christ said "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill." - Matt. 5:17
In the same way, I do not think we are "anomalies" but rather I think we are "trans-cultural" or "trans-systematic beings" meaning we are not against the culture or system but above it and seeking to direct it towards the more.
For me personally that means, "Hip Hop raised me, but Jesus saved me." I am genuinely both, but for you this may mean something different. Your culture may be different than mine, but don't be afraid to go out and become who you are being called to be. Pray on it and see where you are being asked to go, and what you are being asked to do.... With whom; in what way.
Heavenly Father, I pray that we have the grace to enculturate the places we live and dwell with the true faith we know from your Son. Holy Spirit guide us, and may our Guardian Angels protect us as we go. Through the intercession of Mother Mary, and St. Joseph. Amen.
