Daniel also grew up in a culture that was into idol worship. The system, predominated by idol worship, was ruling at that time. Being under the leadership of the wicked king, Nebuchadnezzar, the identity of the Hebrew boys (naming and food) were forcefully being placed on the platform of compromise. But Daniel and his three friends determined not to defile himself by eating the food that was offered to them.
