The Then Dead Man, The Now Dead Spirit?

One woman in her 40′s died of swine flu just one week ago in the church here in Berkamsted. Leaving behind a husband and three children. At the same time a woman in her 80′s here is baffling doctors as the terminal cancer she was diagnosed with has vanished without a trace.
It has become apparent that to work a life in the ministry, you need to live a life filled with the Spirit. I have begun to notice that simply living a life aspiring to be the good guy simply isn’t good enough. What is making me angry is the Church crawling without the Spirit, relying on religion to guide the way. Content with an apparent ideology of a scripture-only faith. One where God is dead – living in the mourning of Jesus and the desperate hope of some kind of afterlife.
Why isn’t the Church living the Spirit filled life of Acts2? Is it that God has changed, or is it that we have changed?
