The Modern Church's Importance in Society

While the Church has been very active in the past as an authority over the kings and rulers and a power over the people, in our new millennium, new century, new decade, the ancient power of the Church has been made decidedly irrelevant. The Church no longer takes an active part in standing up for the metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, and aesthetics of our Christian worldview, the core beliefs and presuppositions of our faith, making it no longer a strong force in society. As it goes along with a dilapidating society, the Church morphs into whatever the culture dictates. Is there a solution?

  1. Why is it that the Church no longer stands up for these things do you think? Is it fear of the congregation from the Pastor? Is it the way we have been conditioned to so completely (but mistakenly) seperate Church from the State? Or is it merely a laziness on our end when it comes to the church educating itself on current and ongoing issues?
