I've been wondering something. Maybe you can help me out. How dangerous is apathy? Is it more or less dangerous in the church?
Recently, I was reminded of how Satan attacks. Many believers believe Satan to "play fair." To think Satan is on the "up and up" is pretty foolish. Satan rarely attacks from the front. He attacks from the side and the rear more often. Worse yet, if Satan can get believers to think no attack is coming at all, he's close to victory.
I'm convinced that apathy is one of the many ploys Satan uses to attract believers. How many of us are sitting in churches just "going through the motions"? How many of us are sitting in church because that's just what we do? How many of us think church is a building somewhere? How many of us are passionate about hobbies, our favorite sports team, or our families and yet the passion wanes when it comes to a relationship with Christ?
Since Adam and Eve ate from the tree, there's been something missing. The problem is mankind isn't really sure what that something is. We attempt to fill the void with things of the world. When those things don't work, we relegate ourselves to complacency and apathy.
Could it be that apathy is even more dangerous than doing something wrong? Thoughts?
