Why are our churches languishing?

We have forsaken the Lord, and are become slaves of honor. We are no longer able to rebuke those who are under our rule, because we ourselves also are possessed with the same fever as they. We, who are appointed by God to heal others, need the physician ourselves. What further hope of recovery is there left, when the very physicians need the healing hand of others?
John Chrysostom, Homily on Ephesians 4:4

They are just following their shepherds.
