In Diluted Faith
When we think of watering down something, in essence we are diluting it, decreasing something. When it comes to our Faith how can we interpret what that means and what it looks like because frankly its a problem and one that isn't just exclusive to our day. Christian's throughout time have struggled with reconciling this belief and the problems it creates. I don't think that anyone would argue that multitudes of people have turned from God based on their experiences and let downs from Christians who have allowed their faith to become so watered down that the effect often results in a person who professes to be a Christian yet allows themselves the excuse of continuing to sin; a hypocrite. In my experience when the Holy Spirit took root, my heart began to change. I felt different towards sin. Slowly over time I was able to overcome many bad habits and the desires that came with them and with the journey God gave me the strength to continue to resist. One thing I find hard to tolerate are those who profess to be Christian but continue to make excuses for continuing to sin, especially my all time favorite excuse "I'm human and I can always ask for forgiveness. The damage to oneself and to those who look to you as an example, is far more reaching than people think. It can ultimately have the effect of turning people who are searching for answers and meaning in the God we profess to follow, and leading them away. Who wants to believe in your witness of a God if what you say is very different from what you do. Watered down faith, in my opinion, is a wolf in sheep's clothing; Hypocrisy
