Love Tramples Truth and Equals Lukewarm Christianity

Today’s lovey-dovey Christianity is repulsive to me. Christians have adopted their own version of political correctness. We’ve become so touchy-feely about not offending anybody that we’ve become lukewarm.

I understand not wanting to abuse Christian liberties that could cause weaker brothers and sisters to stumble, but we’ve carried it too far.

Here’s what Jesus had to say to the church at Laodicea in Revelation 3.

15. I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

Sickening, isn’t it? Who wants to be spit out of the Lord’s mouth?

One remedy for lukewarm Christianity is found in an article written by Harry A. Ironside, a great fundamentalist Bible teacher and pastor from last century. It’s called Exposing Error: Is It Worthwhile?. Click on its title to read it.

Why should love and truth be strangers?
