'The common approach of teaching people to living according to Scripture, without giving due attention to the formative influence of our cultural context, unwittingly and ironically succumbs to the modern illusion that we can choose our own reality, largely free from external influences. This myopic approach to cultural formation runs the risk of incorporating secular assumptions about human identity into our models of discipleship. Although this may be intentional, it undermines the formation of mature Christians who are able to sustain sexual practices that are faithful to the Christian vision of life. Basically, our inability to perceive the influence of cultural misinformation is undermining the power the power of the Christian gospel to guide and form people so they can walk its pathway to sexual maturity.'
Jonathan Grant, Divine Sex, p.22.
