The apostle Paul describes a Christ-follower's role in this world.

Ephesians 5:10-11 Learn what is pleasing to the Lord. Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; (NASB)

Discover what pleases the Lord and set about living that way.  Part of the equation is a zero-tolerance for what does not please God -- and not just abstaining, but speaking out boldly and fearlessly against such deeds.  The Church, the Body of Christ cannot be silent!

Albert Barnes wrote:  "This is the business of Christians.  Their lives should be a standing rebuke of a sinful world, and they should be ever ready to express their [strong disapproval] of its wickedness in every form."  That's what being "salt and light", in this world, is all about!
