Daniel has much to teach us today about living an uncompromising Christian life in a post-Christian culture. When immersed as a young teenager into a pagan culture, with every opportunity and every temptation to do otherwise, he purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself. Babylon was the supreme kingdom of the world, capable of taking him to a level of materialism and self-indulgence beyond his dreams. But Daniel took a stand. He drew from everything he had been taught about Jehovah God.
