These deficits are such that the overall appearance of 21st Century Western Christendom mirrors that of the Laodiceans; in which (if we understand the letters to the seven churches in the Revelation to be a prophetic view of the Church Age), we are hard pressed not to see ourselves in this seventh letter.
