Jesus Christ, the source of Revelation points to three temperatures for churches and people: Hot, Cold, and Lukewarm. According to this letter, Christ makes it clear that he is sickened by those who proclaim their Christianity but who live a life of lukewarm hypocriscy. There is no more important message that we all need to own up to and question we all much ask ourselves and our churches - Are we lukewarm and loving it!
