I know this is an odd name for a blog but for some of you who don’t know what it means to recalibrate, let me definite.
• to determine, check, or rectify the graduation of (any instrument giving quantitative measurements).
• to divide or mark with gradations, graduations, or other indexes of degree, quantity, etc., as on a thermometer, measuring cup, or the like.
• to determine the correct range for (an artillery gun, mortar, etc.) by observing where the fired projectile hits.

As a retired pastor I’ve had the opportunity in the past months to visit several churches and hear numerous online messages. Moreover, as one who has been in ministry leadership and saved for over 45 years, I’ve noticed there are some distinct differences in the messages being delivered in today’s culture.
Amazingly, culture has slowly advanced into the very fabricate of the church. As we see more Christians today instead of being true witnesses for Christ through their lifestyles, they are virtually silent on many issues. I call it the Silence of the Lambs. There are areas of our culture that have become no go areas.; moreover, a number of sins have become acceptable in Western Christianity.
The average Christian today does not share the same views as those of past generations. Many Christians today literally turn their head to ignore what used to be called sin. unfortunately, sex before marriage is now acceptable, homosexuality is an acceptable lifestyle where many advocate tolerance, drinking alcohol is no longer an issue and abortion is basically a woman’s right and taboo in the pulpit. While there are a remnant of churches that are standing on the wall with the true Word of God; there are far too many that have compromised with the culture.
I came from a generation where divorce was sneered upon. It’s time for the church to return to its’ foundation. We need to recalibrate our spiritual and moral compass to reflect the Word of God and not the world. Remember the Word says, “Love not the World nor the things of this Word.”
1 John 2:15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him, 16 because everything that is in the world—the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the arrogance of material possessions—is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and its desire, but the one who does the will of God remains ⌊forever⌋.
Pastors and leaders it’s time to develop a Biblical Worldview among Christians so we can properly discern the wiles of the devil as he desires to deceive the church. Check your moral and spiritual compass and stay on the right track toward the will of God and his destiny for your life.
