Milk Toast Christianity

Proverbs 28:1 says..” The wicked man flees though no one pursues,
but the righteous are as bold as a lion.”

 Does that sound like the Church of today? Hardly. The battle lines have been drawn and the devil and the world are ready, willing and prepared for the fight. The Christian Church however, want no part in this war, and would much rather stay hidden deep within the safety of their foxholes. The proponents of Abortion on demand, gay marriage and those who desire to remove God from main street USA are here, they are vocal and they are organized. Those who say they oppose these godless issues are AWOL, they are silent and are indecisive. The Church is fragmented into many different facets, and the unity the Church used to boast about is all but gone. The Christians of today are too eager to make friends, blend in and assimilate into the world in direct contradiction of what God commanded. “I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified. (John 17:14-19) God declares that we are to be different, actually peculiar to the world around you. (1 Peter 2:9) But the modern Christian easily disappears in the crowd, and rarely lifts their voice to declare God’s truth on the issues we face each day. Fear has gripped the Church of the Living God, and the desire to present a “user friendly” and inoffensive brand of Christianity has taken the place of the Army of God we are meant to be. I would remind all Pastors and Church leaders the words from Revelations 3- "To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: “These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God's creation. I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”

The Laodicean church is a warning to us today. My prayer is that the Church will awaken and fulfill her mission to the world, and honor God once again with more than lipservice.
