Woe To You Church Hypocrites

“In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” – Matthew 5:16

George Barna, in an article entitled U.S. Christians’ Influence Invisible, states: “Christians don’t impact America because their lives don’t reflect their beliefs…and they aren’t sufficiently different from the people around them to make a difference in the lives of non-believers.”

For more than a decade, studies have consistently shown that Christianity seems to be losing its influence in people’s lives. Rather than shaping the way a person lives, it seems to have little effect at all. Ironically, this occurs at the same time Americans are much more interested in spiritual things.

Hey Christians, wake up! Don’t you realize that the more our character and spirit reflect Jesus, the more people see Him and are drawn to Him?

Is your life more a reflection of the culture around you, the spirit and character of Jesus Christ? What would your neighbors say? Your co-workers? Your family? It’s something to think about.
