If you read church news or online blogs, it’s easy to get disillusioned: there’s so much bad news.
Combine this with a bad experience with Christians or a church and it’s no wonder that over 50% of Americans no longer affiliate with a Christian denomination.
After all, the church seems to have proven itself to be full of hypocrisy and self-aggrandizing.

The readings from these past few Sundays serve as a warning for us today that we have to walk the Way or else we’ll become just like the religious authorities of Jesus’s day who turned the Temple into a den of thieves.
The Bottom Line: The Good News is that even when institutions go bad, the message of Christ’s resurrection still breaks out!
