Surviving in Babylon

When Peter is talking to the churches in 2 Peter 2 about Persecution, he brings up one interesting name: Lot. We don't often remember Lot for his goodness, but Peter says that his "righteous soul was vexed" by the immorality that was around him daily. Daniel was in the same boat. Exiled in Babylon after the destruction of Judah, Daniel lived decades in a land that was pagan in every sense of the word: religiously, culturally, emotionally, and physically. Many of us know how those two men felt. How do we survive in a pagan world that is hostile to all things Christ? The same way they did.
