Choosing Right from Wrong, in a society where anything goes?

Recently at a birthday gathering some church members were joking about starting a pole dancing fitness ministry in the church, and how attendance would go up. The good thing was that persons feel freely to talk about their faith as it pertains to everyday life. The alarming point appears when we allow our theology to be swayed by popular culture. However I trust that God works in many ways and believe that our role is not to be judgmental as a Christians. Instead our job is to speak out of love testifying to who we know God to be. With all of this said I turn to today's scripture which reminds us to be true, just, honorable and worthy. Now breathe all of that in and look at the video in this clip- ( http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=news/local&id=8026078) -then ask yourself the question what's wrong and what's right?

Philippians 4:4-8 (NRSV)

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Is it harder to choose right from wrong today? WWJD?
