Machen believed that culture (understood in the sense of high culture) was extremely important. The categories that one received from one's culture either enabled or disabled the understanding of biblical Christianity. Consequently, culture was far too vital simply to be ignored, and it could not be de-stroyed without doing injustice to our humanity.
