The Problem, Response and Solution to Sin in the Restoration Community
For all the progress that was made by the restoration community, there was a serious problem that threatened their entire existence. How could things get so bad?
Ezra discovers that the community had allowed themselves to become critically compromised by intermarrying into the surrounding pagan nations.
It seems that all their external actions of worship had not produced the inner transformation that Ezra knew was essential before God.
As Christians, external actions must begin with a heart that is transformed by the gospel of Jesus. If not people will make emotional responses to religion but fail to be truly transformed by God’s grace.
