In a study of why people go to church, the results open a window on Americans attitudes.
|This is an experience of entertainment. Fun.|
“It keeps me grounded and inspired.”
“It helps me with spiritual growth and guidance.”
“For the fellowship of other members.”
But look at something subtle about them. Specifically, look at who benefits from them. There is an awful lot of “me” in those statements about why we go to church. And an awful not lot of God.
Which could explain much about the state of the church in America.
