Revelation 3:15-16 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
What is a lukewarm christian? It is a person who says they believe in the one true God but they have never read nor have a desire to know His word personally, the bible. They just believe what their church tells them or what they want to believe is biblical. It is a person who believes Jesus is the Christ and our savior but they don’t trust Him to rein in their lives. His laws and rules are no fun, discriminating, and intolerant. They haven’t fully given their life to Christ because they have so much more in common with the world around them. Fighting the good fight of peace and love. Breaking free from what they consider intolerance. They prefer to be in charge of their lives but still hold God at a distance just in case. They turn to God “if all else fails”. They don’t preach biblical truth out fear of being reprimanded or they may lose friends or it’s not the latest trend or it’s not politically correct.
Why do you fear the things and people of this world more than God? Why, if you truly love Him, don’t you want to know His laws and what He wants from you as His creation? Why are you afraid of being labeled and scorned in this life more than eternity in hell away from the presence of God? God would rather you not believe than to be a lukewarm believer because unlike non believers, you have something they don’t and you’re wasting it.
I came across this article and thought it was very accurate. Do you fall under any of these?
Would you prefer to be spit out by God as long as your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and strangers like you? If so, than go on with your life like God isn’t watching and will never return to judge you.
