In our culture today there are medical diagnoses’ for everything. From depression, to stress, to allergies, to sleep problems, and more. There are lists upon lists of medical diseases and almost every America has been labeled with some sort of diagnoses or another. Including myself. But one thing we tend to overlook as Christians are spiritual diseases.
Today, the church has welcomed many spiritual sicknesses into the body, but one that seems to have stricken harder than the others is apathy. In fact, apathetic Christianity is a real disease infecting the body of Christ.
So what is apathy? Well, the definition is simple. It is the mindset of, I don’t care! It is having a lack of concern for others, ministry, spiritual growth, or what God wants of us. In a nutshell, it’s impassiveness about God.
