Lukewarm

“I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm — neither hot nor cold — I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.” 

— Revelation 3:15-17 (NIV)

Lukewarm water is disgusting to drink. Unfortunately, America has become like lukewarm water because it no longer stands for “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” and this indifference has led to apathy.

All across this nation there are people who believe that their material wealth and the number of personal possessions they own are a sign of God’s blessings. However by openly neglecting to stand for God before money or things, the U.S. has become hardened and self-satisfied and is now destroying itself.

Our wealth, our luxury and ease of life has left us complacent and vulnerable not only to outside forces, but extremely ripe for destruction from within. God is going to discipline this once great nation for our indifference towards Him and we should be fearful of His wrath.

One thought on “Lukewarm

  1. The U.S. under Barack Obama no longer stands for anything except “change” for change’s sake! He’s attacked our allies, tried to befriend our enemies and attacked our government, culture and religion! There are many names I have for him, not one is complimentary and not one is repeatable in polite conversation.
