Idle Hands in the Church
Many Christians think of Bible doctrine as irrelevant to everyday life. This is why many churches are abandoning some fairly straightforward biblical teachings in favor of more culturally acceptable and popular beliefs. Failing to connect teaching right doctrine (orthodoxy) with right Christian living (orthopraxy) is not something new. The Apostle Paul addressed it in the Thessalonian church in the early 50’s AD. The words the Holy Spirit led him to pen 1,950 years ago are as applicable to us today as they were then.
