If there is one thing abundantly clear about the church in America it is this: it is weak!
I grow weary reading all the research that indicates professing American Christians do not possess a Biblical worldview, or they are unable to articulate the basic doctrines of the faith in a coherent way, or that they seem to contradict themselves when it comes to core beliefs.
Several things come to my mind:
1) Spiritual leaders must keep the Bible front and center in the life of the local church. We need 45 minute sermons (maybe longer) and perhaps a great deal less music in the average church service
2) We need to emphasize the study of Scripture at home and in the church life
3) We need to actually preach and teach the fundamentals of the faith and perhaps cancel the next seminar on other matters of far less importance
4) We need to actually raise our children in Christian schools where Biblical literacy can be developed from one's youth
5) We need to have the expectation that those professing faith in Christ actually live for him! I am afraid the shallow thinking of those who call themselves Christians is indicative of a form of godliness that lacks the new birth
6) However, with that said those actually weak in the faith are to be received with an eye on discipleship that develops deep conviction. Believers are to be rooted in Christ and not tossed to and fro with every wind of doctrine (Colossians 2:6-7; Ephesians 4:14-15)
Are you a student of Scripture? If not, let's get busy! Read the Bible daily for general knowledge; next, find a godly pastor and actually sit under Biblical teaching and preaching; next, learn to study the Bible at home on your own. Move at your own pace, but STUDY!
