There is a very interesting article by BY JIM DENISON, who is a CHRISTIAN POST COLUMNIST. He writes about a survey given to adults asking what grows their faith? People listed prayer, family , friends, reading the Bible, but going to church didn’t even crack the top 10.
Then he goes into why he thinks that is. He states that half of us (49 percent) say church attendance is “somewhat” or “very” important, but half (51 percent) say it is “not too” or “not at all” important. The younger we are, the worse the numbers get. Only two in 10 adults under the age of 30 believe church is important; more than a third take an anti-church stance.
Also it states how church attendance has changed… “Regular” attenders used to go to church three or more weekends every month. Now those who show up every four to six weeks consider themselves regular churchgoers. While 43 percent of those who attend church say they go “to be closer to God,” 40 percent of those who don’t attend say, “I find God elsewhere” and 35 percent claim that “church is not relevant to me personally.”
