A cut flower can be beautiful for a period of time. But since it has been cut from its roots its beauty will soon fade away. 

I have a personal concern that the church today is becoming more a cut flower church that has been cut from its roots. Either deliberately or from outside worldly pressure it begins to lose its foundational beliefs: More entertainment than spirit-inspired worship; more philosophy that replaces solid Bible teaching and preaching; more socializing than deep spirit-filled fellowship where we ministeer to each other deeply; significant prayer being replaced by rituals and empty ceremonies. 

Our roots are slowly being cut and we try to maintain the beauty of God's church but slowly fade into a worldly display that has no spiritual significance.
