Inoculated Against The “Real Thing”

My Pastor, years ago, said in a message, "Some people have just enough Christianity to be inoculated against the 'real thing'". If true, and it appears to be, how tragic! What does this kind of anemic Christianity look like? ( If it really is Christianity, it will not remain anemic.) Let's look at the profile of one victim of Laodicean lethargy. He (or she) is usually moral, at least in appearance. They probably attend a fair amount of morning Church Services. It would be rare to see them Sunday Night and even more rare to see them in Prayer Meeting. They give lip service to the Truth (some of it, anyway). They throw a little money in the plate, or sometimes a lot, if it makes them look good. They don't read their Bibles much. When, and if, they do, it is apt to be out of duty, not because of love for God or because they derive great pleasure from listening to God. Their mind usually wanders during the message. They don't want to be considered extreme by friends. They will sometimes help at church, if convenient. They give far more time to their "fun" than to Spiritual growth, maybe because there is no life to begin with. They are more comfortable with unsaved friends than with serious Christians. They are more apt to be in church for music or a meal. They are more familiar with their news than God's activities in our world. They know or care little about separated Godly lives. Selah!  Think! They might be saved, they might be lulled into a spiritual stupor, or they might be assuming an experiece they have never had.     Ron
