When tracing any theme through Scripture, it is always wise to check out how it all started. What were God’s original intentions?
When God called his people to “turn from their wicked ways” in preparation for his revival, we would think that they were involved in all sorts of evil practices. In comparison, we are mostly behaving okay and we feel that God is fine with us. We are off the hook. The church in Ephesus was just like that.
