A wayward child, as many can testify, is grief to a parent. This however is a case of the blind leading the blind or the dead leading the dead. Clearly this church does not carry the hope of even Laodicea for it is not indifference it is guilty of, but rather calling evil good and encouraging others in it. It markets itself as the bride but it is a prostitute that beguiles men using culture as its attractionAs a prostitute she beckons men to build upon her soil but as alluring as she is her ground is useless and incapable of supporting a strong foundation. The structures attempted upon it will not withstand the litany of elements that will test it. So ground, foundation, and structure are all incapable of housing the One who should dwell within them.A great sadness indeed.
