The following are a list of ten things which Christ confronts the modern church of. This comes from a great article which you can see by clicking the link below. The article goes into each point with greater detail. Worth a read - More than worth a self-examination on.

If we are not moving forward, trying to present ourselves more like Christ, we are standing still. If we are standing still, we are moving away. There’s only one of two directions - toward God or away from God.

1. There are onerous rules and regulations some call legalism (Matt. 23:1-3).

2. The church leaders serve to receive prestige from men (vv. 5-7).

3. The leaders crave titles and moving up the ranks of hierarchical religious systems (vv. 8-11).

4. The leaders have an entitlement mentality (vv. 11-12).

5. The leaders become a stumbling block to others seeking the kingdom (vv. 13-15).

6. The leaders value and love money and wealth more than anything else (vv. 16-17).

7. The weightier matters of the Word are neglected (vv. 23-24).

8. Ritual is valued more than inner transformation (vv. 25-28).

9. They honor the departed saints without living like them in the present (vv. 29-32).

10. They reject the prophets and wise men who confront their false systems (vv. 33-37).
