Why the Church Shouldn’t Change!

So many people want the Church to change, to become more modern, and to abandon some of its teachings. This would make the Church more popular but what good is a popular Church?
In Matthew 7:14 Jesus said narrow is the way that leads to salvation. Does that sound like an endorsement of modernizing the Church? The way to heaven is narrow, in other words not what everyone else is doing.
The job of the Church is not to be popular but to lead people to salvation, to heaven. What good is a Church that doesn’t lead you to heaven? Do you really want a Church that says you can do anything you want and ignores Jesus teaching about the narrow way?
The Church can not change and stay true to its mission of leading people to salvation. It can not shift with every change in American society. Some day we have to face God who will judge us on eternal values not the political correctness of Modern America
