This is statements coming from the book "Crazy Love" not a judgmental attitude of any kind. Just food for our thoughts this week.
Lukewarm Christians tend to choose what is popular over what is right when they are in conflict. They desire to fit in both at church and outside the church; they care more about what people think of their actions (like church attendance and giving) than what God thinks of their hearts and lives.
"Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for that is how their fathers treated the false prophets". Luke 6:26
"I know your deeds, you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead." Rev. 3:1
Lukewarm people rarely share their faith with their neighbors, coworkers, or friends. They do not want to be rejected, nor do they want to make people uncomfortable by talking about private issues like religion.
"Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven". Matt. 10-32-33)
Food for thought can choke us can't it? Let us all be in prayer and ask God to help us NOT to BE a lukewarm Christian. I am praying...are you?
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
