You cannot help but notice the drifting away from Biblical principles being manifested in the Western Church today. Decades of compromise are resulting in a Church that has little if any resemblance to the early Church we see in the book of Acts. The Church has never been perfect. Only Jesus, the head of the Church, has that distinction. But His holiness beckons each of His followers to strive towards His example.
He has given His Word to guide us in our pursuit of Him. The Word of God changes no more than the One who spoke those words and inspired men to write His message throughout the years. Culture changes. Circumstances ebb and flow. But God and His Word are timeless. We must never make the mistake of considering His Word to be out of touch with our modern lives.
