Are you reluctant to share the truth of Christ with the people around you even though you know they will end up in hell without Him?
Do you stand by passively when others mock Christianity or blaspheme your Lord and Savior?
Are you afraid to defend the Bible on issues like abortion and homosexuality for fear of being called a bigot or hater?
Do you feel embarrassed or ashamed when a Christian leader suggests publicly that natural disasters or other calamities could be the judgment of God?
Then you may have a condition called Low Spiritual Testosterone, or “Low T.”
As Christian societies age they pass through stages. They start out like the Church of Philadelphia (Rev 3:7-13), growing in the blessings of security and prosperity that come from worshipping and praising God. But over time they become complacent, self-serving and ungrateful like the Church of Laodicea (Rev 3:14-22), having “a form of Godliness but denying its power” (2 Timothy 3:5) .
This corrosive environment can rob individual Christian believers of their spiritual testosterone, leaving them feeling weak and powerless; easy prey for bad doctrine or moral compromise (Ephesians 4:11-14).
In extreme cases believers with “Low T” can contract spiritual diseases such as NicerThanJesusitis or the cancerous Emergent Churchanoma. Increasingly we’re even seeing a susceptibility to the hard-to-treat Gay Theologica Psychosis in which sufferers begin to insist that God wants people to reject the Bible and embrace sexual sin (Isaiah 5:20)
If you suffer from any of these symptoms there is still hope for you.
The remedy is found in the pages of the Bible.
As Jesus told the Laodiceans, “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see. Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent.”
Just take these simple steps to restore your spiritual testosterone.
1. Be Prepared. “Put on the full armor of God…” Ephesians 6:10-17
2. Be Purposeful. “Go ye into all the world and make disciples…” Matthew 28:18-20
3. Be Bold. “Let your light shine before men…” Matthew 5:14-16
4. Be Aggressive against evil. “The weapons of our warfare are mighty for pulling down strongholds…” II Corinthians 10:3-6.
5. Be Uncompromising with sin. “Break down their altars…” Deuteronomy 7:5 (spiritually, not physically, per II Cor 10)
6. Be Courageous. Fear God, not man. Matthew 10:26-28.
7. Be Resolute. Remain faithful through tribulation to earn your reward. Revelation 2:9-11.
Taking these steps daily in conjunction with a Healthy Diet of Scripture reading, and Regular Exercise of your faith through evangelism, good works and community activism is absolutely guaranteed to raise your spiritual testosterone levels.
Don’t let “Low T” rob you of your power and authority in Christ. Get back to the Bible!
