I do not know if you would agree with me on this. But today, we do not have our spiritual basics right. We completely forget or dilute the first and last two commandments the Lord gave.
Let me ask a simple question. Who should ideally teach a child about Christ and His love? A parent or the Sunday school teacher? Now I have had a lot of justification and reasoning from brethren around saying, that the parents might not be 'well equipped' for this and that is why there is a need for a ‘Sunday School’. By stating that, you have negated:
- Ephesians 6:2-4
- 2 Timothy 3:16
Do not get me wrong, I am not against a Sunday School or any other ministries. This is just an example to show you the dilution that is in the church and why we are not focussing on the basics given. Therefore, we stumble and soon, fall.
A wise missionary (not mallu. And I think for many of us, fortunately) who spoke to me recently said: “Everyone is an evangelist. Salvation given to mankind is equal to all. When you speak about the Lord, you ideally should NOT say - let me take you to a person who can explain about the Lord. But rather, you should do your part however little. Because His grace and His word has been given to you as well.”
If you are not equipped or if the church is not equipped, or rather if you/church don’t wish to be equipped by meditation and prayer. How do you see anybody put a stop to all of this?
These are all signs of the end. Therefore, your obligation if you consider to have one, is to pray that the Lord enlighten everyone.
