If as a Christian, you're finding it increasingly difficult to maintain integrity in your daily walk, don't fret, you're not alone. In these days and times, practicing Christians, as a whole, are increasingly facing the daily challenge of swimming against the current of the world.
This is not only true for individual believers but also so for the churches we attend as well. Churches are coming under increasing pressure to conform to the ways of the world in order to attract new members, increase the size of their congregations and satisfy the demands of church goers who expect and demand to see the same things in their church as they see in large and affluent churches.
Quite a number of churches have gone so far as to rely on market research data to custom tailor their programs and messages to suit the trends and the tastes of society. In turn many pastors are being led by the sheep, completely disregarding the "old fashioned" bible based notion of being led by the Spirit.
A.W. Tozer said the following,“Religion today is not transforming people; rather it is being transformed by the people. It is not raising the moral level of society; it is descending to society’s own level, and congratulating itself that it has scored a victory because society is smilingly accepting its surrender.”
Jesus said," if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.” John 12:32
