The church as a whole is too timid to call sin a sin and to recognize the full authority of the Bible (Revelation 3:16). That’s why the last two mainline Presbyterian USA churches we were members of seceded (at great financial cost) from our parent denomination and formed/joined a new Presbyterian ECO denomination which recognizes the Bible as the final authority (2 Timothy 3:16) and calls out sin as sin from the pulpit and exercises biblical accountability amongst our leadership and members. Churches in general today are too timid to follow Biblical authority and instead bow to cultural relativism, partly out of fear of increasing the already substantial outflow of members (Romans 1:18-20). It is, however, encouraging that there is a thirst for Biblical truth amongst some in this society and the world (Matthew 5:6). Good news! He that is within us Christians (the Holy Spirit) is greater than he that rules this world (the devil and his demons). (Luke 12, Romans 8:28, 1 Corinthians 3:16, Revelations 2:7)
