IMMORALITY IN CHURCHES: ISSUES AND THE WAY FORWARD

  • 1. International Institute of Christian Theologians Scholars and Professionals

Description

The church is deemed a sacred place and a source of example for biblical principles and practices that glorify God. It is apparent that immorality among Christians in churches is on the rise despite the proliferation of churches and preachings, teachings and godly counsels by men and women of God on numerous social media platforms as well as in-person or physical spaces. These efforts are supposed to shape the moral lifestyles of followers of Christ as Christians described as the light of the world are but we seem to be failing as a church. There are issues of fornication, abortion, adultery, embezzlement, polygamy among others that are being speculated about the church. These issues cannot help their church to achieve its great commission enshrined in Mathew 28: 16-20. These have raised the curiosity of the researcher to delve into this topic and unveil where exactly the church is failing and how society thinks about the church currently. James 3:11 states ‘can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring?’. This gives us a cause to consciously discipline ourselves wherever we are so that we can reflect Christ as society expects of us. Christians misconduct among believers is catastrophic to souls. The researcher will look at definition of terms, some immoral practices in the church, what the causes are, and what we can do to salvage the situation. He will use questionnaire and observation method as his research methodology. The researcher will conclude by giving conclusion and recommendations.
