The church is not perfect, but woe to the man who finds pleasure in pointing out her imperfections.
– Charles Spurgeon
Contemporary American Christianity has plenty to critique, but I hear many criticizing that are doing little about the problems.
It is easier to denounce the flaws in the church than it is to contribute to its spiritual health through Biblically valid membership. It is easier to decry the ignorance of modern Christians than it is to invest in developing their spiritual maturity. It is easier to debate the common doctrinal fallacies of the day than it is to promote an understanding of Biblical truth.
It is easier to sit back and curse the darkness than to get up and light a candle.
Most churches are not purposely unhealthy. Many Christians are not purposefully Spiritually immature or Scripturally ignorant. Not everyone that holds a false teaching does so knowingly.
Strike a match. Pour your life into your church and the people in it. Invest your time, talents, and energy into building up those who comprise the body of Christ. Light a candle in the darkness.
