At the time Malachi was written, the priestly tribe of Levi had stopped administering the law as prescribed by God, permitting intermarriage with foreigners, idolatry and hypocrisy. Today, the church in America, in its commitment to lukewarmness, has likewise become largely irrelevant, despised and humiliated. We are called to lead others in obedience to God's Word, and to obey it as we lead. But do believers today look any different from unbelievers? Are we aware of the consequences?
