There was a time when the Church was very powerful … In those days the Church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society. Wherever the early Christians entered a town the power structure got disturbed and immediately sought to convict them for being “disturbers of the peace” and “outside agitators.” Things are different now. The contemporary Church is so often a weak, ineffectual voice with an uncertain sound. It is so often the arch-supporter of the status quo. Far from being disturbed by the presence of the Church, the power structure of the average community is consoled by the Church’s silent and often vocal sanction (approved action) of things as they are. What is the main idea of this paragraph?

Where can he go to escape endless sorrow? For Adam’s sin must die of nature. 145 EVERYMAN. Death, if I should this pilgrimage take, And my reckoning surely make, Show me, for saint charity, Should I not come again shortly? DEATH. No, Everyman; and thou be once there, 150 Thou mayest never more come here, Trust me verily. EVERYMAN. O gracious God, in the high seat celestial, Have mercy on me in this most need! Shall I have no company from this vale terrestrial Of mine acquaintance that way me to lead? 155 DEATH. Yea, if any be so hardy, That would go with thee and bear thee company. Hie thee that thou were gone to God’s magnificence, Thy reckoning to give before his presence. What! weenest ° thou thy life is given thee, 160 °think And thy worldly goods also? EVERYMAN. I had weened so, verily. DEATH. Nay, nay; it was but lent thee; For, as soon as thou art gone, Another a while shall have it, and then go therefrom 165 Even as thou hast done. Everyman, thou art mad! Thou hast thy wits five, And here on earth will not amend thy life; For suddenly I do come. EVERYMAN. O wretched caitiff! whither shall I flee, 170 That I might ‘scape endless sorrow? Now, gentle Death, spare me till tomorrow, That I may amend me With good advisement. ° °warning DEATH. Nay, thereto I will not consent, 175 Nor no man will I respite, But to the heart suddenly I shall smite Without any advisement. And now out of thy sight I will me hie; See thou make thee ready shortly, 180 For thou mayst say this is the day That no man living may ‘scape away. (Exit DEATH.) EVERYMAN. Alas! I may well weep with sighs deep. Now have I no manner of company To help me in my journey and me to keep; 185 And also my writing is full unready. How shall I do now for to excuse me? I would to God I had never been get! To my soul a full great profit it had be, For now I fear pains huge and great. 190 The time passeth; Lord, help, that all wrought. For though I mourn it availeth naught. The day passeth, and is almost a-go; I wot ° not well what for to do. °know To whom were I best my complaint to make? 195 What if I to Fellowship thereof spake, And showed him of this sudden chance? For in him is all mine affiance, ° °trust We have in the world so many a day Been good friends in sport and play. 200 I see him yonder, certainly: I trust that he will bear me company; Therefore to him will I speak to ease my sorrow.
