Evaluate Church’s Health

Unhealthy Church Examples

Jesus Christ’s words to the seven churches in the book of Revelation are not just ancient history. They reveal the spiritual condition of God’s Church and local congregations throughout history.

The letters to the seven churches as commanded by Christ through John contain important lessons! If we heed these lessons, we will gain a reward from Jesus Christ. Christ advised all seven churches: “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches” (Revelation 3:22). Let us examine how these lessons apply to the church today.

The Seven Churches from Revelation might be viewed as examples of sick, unhealthy and possibly dying churches.

The Danger of Diminishing Love (Represented by the church at Ephesus)

The Danger of Fearing, Suffering (Represented by the church at Smyrna)

The Danger of Doctrinal Compromise (Represented by the church at Pergamos)

The Danger of Moral Compromise (Represented by the church at Thyatira)

The Danger of Spiritual Death (Represented by the church at Sardis)

The Danger of Failing to Advance (Represented by the church at Philadelphia)

The Danger of Luke Warmness (Represented by the church at Laodicea)
