"We have been filled with grief as we have witnessed the decline of the North American Church that was once filled with missionary zeal and yet now seems determined to bury itself in a deadly embrace with the spirit of the age"

About this Quote

This quote by Peter Akinola talks to the decline of the North American Church. It is an unfortunate and sobering reminder of how far the Church has strayed from its original mission of spreading the gospel. The Church has ended up being too comfy in its present state, and has actually accepted the spirit of the age, which contrasts the teachings of the Bible. This has actually led to a decline in missionary passion and a decline in the number of individuals attending church. The Church has become complacent and has actually lost its passion for ministration and outreach. This quote functions as a reminder to the Church to return to its initial objective and to be filled with the same missionary passion that it once had.
