The question is:

Should Christians look to extract a Christian message from 'worldly' products and ideas?

A few further questions and thoughts to perhaps stimulate discussion...
Might this be in danger of causing more confusion than doing good? Does anyone have any examples, good or bad where extract a Christian message from 'worldly' products and ideas has been done?

I think it matters how this is done, and exactly what the example is that is being used. If the wrong thing is used, it can actually be detrimental to the Christian message despite good intentions.

Should a message be looked for that is so subtle that it needs a lot of explanation to be understood? The argument here is that the gospel and the basic message of the Bible can and should be presented in a way that is understandable by anyone - but does that make all other presentations invalid or wrong? What about creativity? Is creatively presenting the gospel (by this I mean, say, presenting it in a modern-day situation for example, or using a specific theme from which the essence of the message can be drawn, but not immediately obvious) a good or bad thing?

Should extracting a Christian message from 'worldly' products and ideas be considered a good way of 'evangelism' or presenting the gospel?
