Lukewarm Churches & Christians Yoked with Unbelievers
Bible indicates that the Churches' beliefs are lukewarm. The below prophecy may relate to the church of the last 100 years, according to some scholars and historians who have matched the description of each church in Revelation 2 and 3 and related it to a particular time in history. The last church is the Laodiceans church. This probably corresponds to the last church of the age, and the description matches the church of today. As a result people who only believe the mainstream teachings are rejected. However, there may be some hot churches. "Rev 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15 I know thy
works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So
then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out
of my mouth. 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and
have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable,
and poor, and blind, and naked."
The mainstream church of today certainly fits this description. Most of the preaching is not deep and does not refer to the Bible enough. It is unlikely that people learn much about the Bible. Generally they hear things that they already know. God may consider some aspects of the mainstream Church of today the same as the Pharisees, which formed the mainstream church in Jesus' time. The Pharisees were proud arrogant people who wanted to show everyone how good they were. Jesus wants a humble loving heart that generously gives without showing off. He would not want one which openly gives a little often, for the purpose that it looks good to the congregation.
Also, verse 17 (above) states that the church will be focused on material things and money, more than doing God's will. This is very evident today, as people who go to church do the same things as the non-believers. They seek money and material things more than they seek God. They seek to be part of the same corrupt system as the unbelievers, instead of spending their time doing God's will. Much of the false church have or follow many of the worldly things that are not needed, cost money and take the focus away from God. Items are even sold inside the church. How would this compare to the time when Jesus drove out those people who bought and sold in the temple?
Are you satisfied with an apostate church that is disobeying God and will be spewed out of the mouth of God (Rev 3:14-17)? If you were a true Christian you would be standing up against evil and wanting to find the true church. A true person of God would not want to become part of the apostate church. In the New Testament, people of God spoke against evil and the mainstream church of their day who were the Pharisees. This could refer to all mainstream denominations. We can't compare today's churches with the Churches in Paul's time when there was a major move of God. Remember this is the last days (like the days of Noah) and mankind is generally more wicked now than they were in Paul's time. So all the churches we know of may be considered apostate in God's sight.
Remember: Make a change for the better by doing things God's way and not man's way.
