A milquetoast Christianity has infected our churches and our faith. We have been lulled to sleep by decades of compromise. What passes for Christianity today seems normal to us and no cause for alarm. Brothers and sisters, the house is on fire and everyone is sleeping through it. We do the things the world does, talk the way the world talks, and pursue the same things those without Christ pursue.
We are called to live differently from those around us, to be a sacred priesthood (1 Peter 2:9). It is obvious we are not fulfilling our call. We have surrendered the fight in favor of obtaining the things of this world and the lusts of our flesh. The worst part is, most of us are so numb we don’t even know it. The battle is lost and we are oblivious to the tragedy.
