Cultural Adventism is a Waste of Your Life!

Are you a cultural Adventist?  Or we could ask are you a cultural Christian? Either way let me share this with you: if you are, then you are wasting your life!

A “cultural Adventist,” is someone who, by his/her own admission, is an Adventist solely because he/she was raised and educated in the church.  Let me tell you, if this is your position you’re wasting your life and time!  I personally believe to be “cultural” anything is a waste, but my wife says I am intense in all areas, so maybe that is a little extreme.  It is not extreme though to say that “cultural” Christianity or because of my belief system Adventism is leading you no where but eternal separation from God.  How and why do I say that?

Revelation 3:15 & 16–

“‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.”

This text is a description of “cultural” living.  “Cultural” living is living with no passion, simply going through the motions for the sake of going through the motions.  That is what was happening with the church at Laodicea. The Laodicean church was simply going through the motions, no passion, doing Christianity just for the sake of doing Christianity, not because they were truly following Christ.  And Jesus said, “Because you have no passion I will spit you out!” It sounds to me like being spit out is pretty much the description of a wasted life. 

So are you a “Cultural Adventist Christian” ?  Would you die for Jesus?  Would you die for what you believe in?  Is your greatest passion Jesus and your second greatest passion the mission of Jesus, seeking and saving the lost? As you learn things from the Bible do you ask how can I live more like Jesus? Who can I share this with?

Folks don’t be anything just cause it is the culture, especially Christianity!  Be passionate for Jesus and the truths you believe or be nothing, but don’t be cultural, it will just get you spit out!
