To many Christian's want a microwave popcorn religion. They want a message that tickles their ears, and not a message that speaks to their heart, convicts their conscious, and turns them around front and center with a Savior who is equipped to deal with every issue we encounter.
There was a time when being a Christian (don't challenge slave time look beyond that) when because of the very existence of true Christian's the moral barometer for this and every country had a standard. The standard has left. You can't tell a Christian from a non-Christian. It's like the days of the prostitute, you could look at her and just by the way she dressed you knew, "ah that's a hooker". Now our children are dressing just like hookers and we say they're just expressing themselves, but you can't tell them from a hooker. Modesty has been replaced by a new free spirit, that is justified in the churches, if not justified tolerated.
It's time for Christian's to represent! It's time for Christian's to reflect the nature of Christ! It's time for Christian's to speak in love, love with compassion, to seek mercy and grace for all and truly be ambassadors for Christ!
