If the Church is to be a new culture (which she is), doesn't it seem likely that we would be at odds with any culture that 'competes' with us? If we are proclaiming the gospel rightly, then isn't a battle inevitable? Didn't Jesus tell us that the world would hate us?
As we have it, the Church is at peace with the world around us. What does this say about the manner in which we are proclaiming the gospel?
