Revelation Unveiled – Episode 16: Letter to Lukewarm Laodicea

Laodicea is the Lukewarm Church. These cowardly Christians were so afraid of long their status, prosperity, and comfort, that they refused to take a stand on anything! They would neither passionately embrace Jesus, or definitively reject Him. They refused to make any choice at all!

They figured that as long as they didn’t move in one direction or the other, they could remain safe from both the condemnation of the World and the judgment of God. But they were wrong!

In His letter to this Church, Jesus blatantly said that He would rather they be evil than Lukewarm! Why? Because when you choose a moral direction, God can interact with you! If you choose righteousness, He can encourage and bless you. If you choose evil, He can admonish and correct you. But if you don’t choose ANYTHING, then there is no way for Him to interact with you. You are worthless to Him!

In fact, Jesus says that these Christians make him want to vomit!

Worst of all is that prophetically speaking, this Laodicean Church represents the age in which we are currently living! Out Postmodern Church is the Laodicean Church. Our dominant “theology” is the idea of being a “loving” (not true Biblical love, but emotional, subjective, human love), inoffensive, non-confrontational, non-judgmental, saccharine sweet, universally tolerant, superficially Biblical, Christian Country Club.

Is it any wonder that we make Jesus sick?

In this week’s episode, we look at the worst Church of all. Our Church.

    Im curious as to when you say you disagree with certain people using “God is Love” as their banner.

    Would you say that there is an issue with translation in these verses or that they are talking about something else?

    “Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
    ‭‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭8‬ ‭ESV‬‬

    “So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.”
    ‭‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭16‬ ‭ESV‬‬

      Hi Daniel,

      It is primarily an interpretation issue. I have a problem with people saying or implying that “Love” is God’s exclusive nature. God’s nature is that He is always and completely right and just. Love is an effect of God’s nature, not the cause. Also, when most people use the term love, they use an incorrect definition (some type of benevolent feeling), as opposed to the Biblical definition – giving (sacrificing) without the expectation of getting anything in return.
