    Hello Mel,
    The verses 15,16 --The church is likened to lukewarm water, or as being virtually worthless. Christ says He will spew the out, or eject them from His company.

    The hot waters of nearby Hierapolis were known for their medicinal qualities, where as Colossae as known for its cold pure water. But Laodicea was forced to receive water by aqueduct from other areas. By the time it arrived at Laodicea it was lukewarm and provoked nausea. The works of the Laodicean Church were as worthless as the citys lukewarm water.

    The description does not refer to a back slidden condition, but rather to their lack of genuine faith.

    God bless!
    In Christian Love.......

    Hi Mel. I have often thought about that passage and often worried that my heart was not warm enough to God. Lois has given me a great insight there and has told me a lot of things I did not know. Thank you Lois.
    Luke warm water is vile if you have ever drunk it!
    God bless

    Ok, although I would rather err on the side of conservatism and keep fanning the flames, I cannot argue with the interpretation offered. I am sure that others will study this in greater depth. Thanks, Lois.

    In Christ,

    Mel
