The Bible and Science – Why Cold or Hot

The Bible and Science – Why Cold or Hot

Revelation 3:15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were cold and hoteither one or the other! (NIV)

I want to look at the idea of cold and hot from the aspect of food/germs. Hot food will actually kill germs while chilling food will not kill germs but at least make them inactive. But the “lukewarm” temperature in verse sixteen it is just right for rapid growth of many germs that can harm a person. The temperature extremes of cold or hot will render unwanted organisms “safe.” The lukewarm condition will let all sorts of harmful things grow inside of you.

This is definitely a metaphorical example because the context is “deeds or work” that you are doing in your life. So your deeds should be wholehearted or not at all but doing them halfheartedly will lead to problems.

∞ Father, may my works be done with a good attitude and directed for Your glory. Amen.
