One aspect that is continually reinforced through the Bible is the authority of God over His creation. This goes beyond ability to control events on Earth, into the realms of defining moral standards and concept of what is right.
On occasions, this concept may be offensive to some, but if the Bible is true it cannot be avoided. To the average nominally-Christian person, Western society would be considered to be largely following the standards of Christ and God. Once you start scratching beneath the surface though, the harmony starts to break down. From some of the events of the Bible, God would abhor the standard of the society, and the society would abhor the standards of God.
