“So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth.” – Revelation 3:16

Here’s a look at Pope Francis’ meaningful words about how many of today’s Christians are too “wrapped up in [their] petty things, [their] jealousies, envy, careerism, in going ahead selfishly.”

According to the Pope, “lukewarm Christians without courage” are too enveloped by a “tepid atmosphere.” He adds that “because tepidness draws you inside, and problems arise among us; we have no horizons, we have no courage, neither the courage to pray toward heaven nor the courage to proclaim the Gospel. We are lukewarm.”

How do you feel about the Pope’s comments? To what extent might you consider yourself a “lukewarm Christian?”
