RELIGIOUS THOUGHTS The Moral Weakness of the Church The moral weakness of the church has contributed to moral crisis. The church has catered to sin, sold herself out, failed to lift up God's standard in the land. You cala belon today's church and not be any different than you were when joined. Those outside the church can't tell any difference in way they live and act and the way the church members live act. New Testament Christianity, when Jesus Christ was here the flesh, was characterized by a marked change in individual's life. The tax collector, Zacchaeus, who climbed tree to see Jesus, who became the Lord's host for that c indicated the change that came into his life when he met "Behold, Lord, the half my goods ! give to the poor; and If i taken anything from any man by false accusation, ! fourfold. And Jesus said unto him, This day this house..." [Luke 19:1-9]. His religion changed his life. affected his business dealings; it affected his life at home; and affected his relationships with those whom he had wron Today's religion has failed in three areas that have taken starch out of Christian commitment: First, form in religion has been substituted for Down through the ages, the church has been plagued with problem The Reformation broke it apart, but it is with us Jesus Christ put it this way: "This people honor me with lips, but their heart is far from me" [Mark 7:61. The God in the Old Testament faced the problem and to obey God is better than religious observances, and to to God Is better than all your religloes offerings" [I Sam. There are many who are formally good Christians but who not vitally involved with Jesus Christ and their church. Second, Biblical teaching has been divorced from life. Christ said, "Why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the thing0] say" [Luke 6:46]. Morality and the Bible belong together. If divorce right from the moral foundation of the Bible, then have no basis for doing right. Nobody does right simply it is the thing to do. People do right because of the hig of the love of God as found in the Bible. Somewhere, they been motivated to do right because of a high standard lifted for them. It is possible to be good, but good for nothing. calls us to be good'for something, for someone. If we God, then we believe He said, "Love your neighboras yourself then we try harder to appreciate one another. There is no t for this kind of morality outside of the Bible and a faith Almighty God. Third, the church has separated the commission of Christ "make disciples" from morality and ethics (actions in every life) Jesus Christ and the Apostles spoke of a changed life w they called conversion, regeneration, or a birth of the spirit of j man that caused a difference in his life (John 3). Christianity has placed a superficial emphasis on salvation this type of getting right with God. Modern Christianity too little of this inward change brought about by response to the love of God. The church fails to call for on the basis of a personal commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord life. We are failing to demand of men repentance toward and personal confession of sin. This moral weakness of the modern church has resulted in lack of vitality in the Christian religion. The church must her members to be different on the basis of a changed life. was the charisma of Jesus Christ.
