“Not those who are too hot and not those who are too cool — it is the tepid ones that God has spat out of his mouth.”
If there’s one good thing coming from the current state of the Church today it’s this: it’s becoming more and more difficult to remain lukewarm in the Church.
Let’s be honest, most of us have reached a place in our past where we were probably not as engaged in our faith as we are today.
Divisive events have occurred, and unfortunately, continue to occur in the Church. These events require a decision: stay or go.
If you stay, it’s near impossible to act like nothing happened or has changed. Staying means doubling down on our faith in Jesus Christ, and digging deeper into what it means to follow Him. And, it also means holding ourselves and our fellow Catholics to higher standards. But, with all of that comes hope.
By staying, we can have hope that, by God’s grace, we can re-right our course. All is not lost. But, to engage in that endeavor, we can’t stay neutral. We can’t remain lukewarm.
