The culture and mentality of every nation is created by its gods. When Israel just left Egypt, they did not have the culture we know from Bible. That was infused to the newborn nation by Almighty later (and even then, not 100% pure). So, if you think words of the Scripture sound like from another universe - remember, so they sounded to first Israelites and all their neighbors. Modern western culture is formed by deities of business, fashion, entertainment, consumerism, sex, feminism... No surprise many can not digest pure Biblical teaching and prefer to adapt it to this pagan context.
