Has the Church gone down the toilet??

 Loud music, bright flashing lights, huge video screens, young-hip pastors, beautiful people only, complicated choruses, screaming guitars and pulse altering bass and drums.

Has the Church become a 'paradox', a contradiction of the values and purity earlier generations instilled so vehemently into it?
Only fifty to sixty years ago the church condemned those who went to dances, or listened to rock and roll. Women were expected to wear long dresses down to their ankles and tops buttoned high up to their necks, and tight clothes were a complete no no!
I spoke with a lady today who was passionately opinionated about the fact that the modern church is heading down the gurglar! And she felt it was her 'duty' to be a conscience and challenge to our wayward journey.
The Truth and reality is that the 'Church' is the body of Christ whether we agree or disagree with its current state, it is very much in the hands of Almighty God!
Over the past few decades the church has expanded to become multi denominational, embracing every culture, style and belief. It has evolved into a modern, culturally sensitive and relevant machine. Often berated for its teaching on money and criticised for being too modern, the church in all its many forms seems to be regularly attacked from within. Almost like a fast moving cancer that attacks its own body, the church is most guilty of not looking after its own.
So what does God think about what the Church has become? He says in His Word, that wherever two or three are gathered in His name, there He is in their midst. So I hazard to suggest, that maybe God really doesn't care about the 'politics' of the Church, and even the 'way' we do church. I think He cares more about what's going on inside the heart of a man or women within the church.
I think maybe He must laugh at all the hang ups we get as well-meaning Christians in berating our fellow brother or sister for things that don't hold an eternal weight; when there are souls living right next door to the 'church' that have never even heard about God!
The Church may annoy, trouble, or even upset you in it's current form, but our job is not to worry about the 'Church', that's God's job. He will have His way with His Church.
Our job is simply this:- "Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone, everywhere. Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. Mark 16:15,16.
