The next fifty years in this country (the UK), and the U.S. — the West in general especially really — is going to be very interesting for society; for the Church. Mainly for the Church. Society is going through a major shift, almost on a global scale. A great divide is coming and will hit the Church over issues of sexuality and marriage. More so than it might already seem.
Only one side will come out of it as the dominant "winner". The other, to reside in obscurity in the annals of embarrassing history. Everything is being done under the guise of "love" — almost as if to try and shame the Church into looking as though it's not being or preaching "LOVE" as it's meant to. But it's not love, not truly, it's hedonism with a 'love-mask'.
It is lust and desire renamed as "love". The only way the world will be put right is if the Church truly lives out and demonstrates TRUE LOVE. Not fairytale Disney "true love" but real, actual, LOVE.
No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13
The Church needs to step up, stop squabbling, and demonstrate true love.
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. John 13:35
Stop worrying about how The World acts and lives, and manage your own house.
For what have I to do with judging those outside? Is it not those who are inside that you are to judge? 1 Cor 5:12
Act in love towards one another and let that bleed out INTO the World. Let them know us by our love and watch them come.
God's house will stand in spite of us.
