RODDY'S 66 .Highway 287 East .Clarendon, Texas James Brandon's RELIGIOUS THOUGHTS THE CHURCH AND TODAY'S MORAL CRISIS The moral weakness of our land can be laid at the door of the church. The Christianity of those who make up the church is weak. Church members are failing to live out the moral and ethical teachings of the Scriptures, The Church is not lifting up her voice against the sins of her members as Christianity works dtself out in the practical realm of everyday life. There has been a failure to apply Christian principles to life. We do aj/oor jobof living what we profess. ":,- Christianity has always been demonstration. Jesus Christ demonstrated by example the type of person a Christian is to be. The Apostle Paul said that the Christian is an example of the grace of God (Eph. 1:6). To the Thessalonian Christians, the Apostle said: "You were examples to all ... [I These. hT]. God hasn't changed His mandate for this generation of Christians. We too are to live as examples of what we profess to believe. Far too often, Christians today have said, "This I believe;" and then practiced something else. The Christian life has to be demonstrated to others. The Christian must live his religion. Jesus illustrated this by salt, saying of the Christian: "Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lest his savour, wherewith shall it he salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to he east out, and to he trodden underfoet of men" [Matt. 5:13]. The Christian is the world's seasoning. If we lose our flavor, fail to profess what we say we possess; then the world loses its example and can't find the way. The Christian, thereby, becomes useless and good for nothing. When Christianity becomes only a Sunday religion, it becomes useless as a seasoning for s6ciety. Our tendency has been to leave our religion at the church house rather than take it home with us, or take it to our businesses, our jobs, our schools, our courts, our government, or our places of recreation. Our reliou must he a way of life for us personally, or it is personally useless. It must-be a Monday vitality as well as a Sunday church going. The Apostle Paul spoke of the Christian "walk." He meant that faith in Christ is to be lived out in everyday life. The Apostle said to the New Testament child of God who faced the pagan world of his day: "Walk worthy of your vocation ,.," [Eph. 4=1]. He is speaking of the way we act; the way we live. We are to live so we can be counted worthy to be called a Christian. The Apostle said: "Walk circumspectly ..." [Eph. 5:15]. He means: "Be careful how you act ..." To live circumspectly in this world is to live accurately; it is to live pointedly concerning Christian principles. The Apostle said, "Walk in love" [Eph. 5:1], The love of which he speaks is that love and consideration that puts supreme value upon the other person and sees the dignity of the human soul. Live your religion, if you have any[ Be a real Christianl Dare to be the savor that makes life worthwhile, that improves your circle just because you're there. Be an example of Jesus Christi If you will, you will see a change in our society. Pentecostal Church in revival .The United Pentecostal Church of Clarendon is now in revival . , .  . i ' with Rev.
