CONFORMATIONI find it interesting that Lutheran National Bishop, Susan Johnson, invokes this verse in support of the responsible resource extraction:
I wonder why are we not to be conformed to world in this context while, at the same time, being thoroughly and deeply conformed in matters sexual? The testing continues. Is the will of God more likely to found in human experience, or in Holy Scripture and the Faith once revealed? Where is the good, acceptable and perfect more likely found?
"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." (Ro12.2)
