Blame the Church

Your country is in a mess? Blame the Church. Politicians are stealing resources? Blame the Church. HIV/AIDS is on the increase? Blame the Church. Your tooth aches? Blame the Church.
The blame on the Church is now on the increase, as violence and corruption and all that is wrong is on the increase.
The Church is under attack and rhetoric of the church not doing enough to combat the ills of society are being shouted from the roof-tops.
The society believes the Church needs to reformat itself and implement programmes similar to those practice outside the Church, but if these are working so well, why the turn to the Church for answers?
The Church for as long as I can remember, has been speaking out against the wrongs of society. It has tried to warn the society according to the Word of God of the fruits of their deeds, and what these deeds would culminate in, but to no avail.
The Church has been pushing ideas such as love your neighbour as you love yourself. Fear and love the one true God. The love of money is the root of all evil. Sex outside of marriage is a sin. Sex should be between a man and a woman.
Although the Church has touted these ideas through blood sweat and tears. The society has been programme to do the opposite by the media.
The media has touted the ideas that it is you against the world, and the more you have the better for you. There is no God, and that we are all gods once we tap into our true potential. Money is the root to all happiness. Sex is good in all forms and fashions. It has also gone as far of late to proclaim that it is cool to be gay.
With this increase radical doctrine by the media the morals in society are on a radical decline. Respect and trust are things of the pass. All types of diseases and crimes are on the increase. The society on realizing this decline in values and has turned to blame the church for not warning them enough.
This can almost be liken to a child who runs when despite its mother saying not to run. Yet when it stumbles and falls, it runs to its mother seeking solace.
The only blame which the Church would have to concede to, is that of trying to warn the world of the effect of its actions.
