“Wheat and Tares” or “Least, Last and Lost?”

There is a tension always present in the church. Think about the “wheat and tares” analogy. Like wolves in sheep’s clothing, people infiltrate the church and begin to break down our morals, our values, our beliefs until we compromise away the essence of who we are to be “relevant” to the culture. However, you could also see “wheat and tares” as the constant internal struggle we each must face to follow Jesus or follow our own desires.

The challenge for the church is the constant discernment between Christ and Culture. What is core to the beliefs of Christianity versus what our culture feels is “normal” or “proper” and therefore what God approves? Outsiders constantly require us to remember our salvation story and grapple with their new ideas and ways of looking at the world. Look how the Gentiles (outsiders) changed the Jewish members (insiders) inside the early church. We must remember that we belong to the “Least, Last and Lost” except for Jesus.
