Q. Not even the Church is making much much protest, it seems that we, as a nation are just accepting it, why? Rhetorical question I know, but I would like your thoughts on it. Are we, I, the Laodicean church? It scares me to my core and all I know to do is keep praying, listening, hoping. I think that court decision may have been the tipping point for America and things will go down hill rapidly. I am comforted by the Lords message to the church of Philadelphia, I have considered myself to be of that church for a long time. I am almost 80 years old and love my Lord Jesus with all my heart and am grateful to Him beyond words.
A. There’s an interesting contradiction here. According to recent polls, the majority of Americans identify themselves as Christian and the majority of Americans also favor same sex marriage. So even in the Church it appears that opposition to same sex marriage is in the minority.
Rev. 3:8 says the church of Philadelphia will have little strength but will remain faithful, while the Church of Laodicea will consider itself to be rich and in need of nothing even though the Lord sees it to be wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked (Rev. 3:17).
These two verses show the division between the true church and the apostate church at the end of the age and explain why the church is not a powerful voice in our day.
