The Charlotte Observer published an article this weekend describing how Christianity has become more of a ‘roll-your-own’ practice. Believers pick and choose whatever they like including borrowing from other religions that were historically seen as competition.
Quoted in the article was David Kinnaman of the Barna Group; “Most Americans have one foot in the biblical camp and one foot outside it. They say they are committed, but to what? They are spiritually active, but to what end?”
But this statement echoed what I’ve thought for a long time; “Why would so many Americans – seven out of ten – say they have made a personal commitment to Jesus but show so little evidence in their lives?”
The many distractions of this ‘pop-culture’ world has caused religion to change so that it doesn’t get lost in all the noise. I doubt the various founders would approve.
