Are you looking for the missing piece? Is your religion lacking? Your Church? Your Worship Service? You are looking to get closer to God – but something is just missing? Like that last piece of a puzzle -
This Sunday – we heard statistics from 2005 – from a survey taken by Protestant Evangelical Christians – of who is Spiritual – Who Reads their Bible – and Who thinks Jesus is the way to Salvation – or if you can find the Hope and Peace of Forgiveness in being Good and leading a Good Life. The majority questioned said their friends who did not believe in the Name of Jesus – who led good lives and served well – will be saved – in Heaven – after they die.
I did a quick look up this morning and found this article:
Key findings in the phone survey, conducted in August and released today:This was conducted in 2010.
•65% rarely or never pray with others, and 38% almost never pray by themselves either.
•65% rarely or never attend worship services.
•67% don't read the Bible or sacred texts.
Many are unsure Jesus is the only path to heaven: Half say yes, half no.
Why are people so unsure of what they believe? Are they afraid to speak truth? Are they afraid to offend? Are they afraid of standing up for truth? If you are expecting the path of life to lead to heaven – and you believe in God – and you are wanting Hope of Salvation and Christ’s Return – Then following the Word of God – is your first step.
How many of you are in the Word daily? Have you read the bible? If you do take the time to sit in a church service a few times a year are you content with the offerings of a verse here and there, possibly taken out of context?
What happens when Jesus isn’t Enough?
What more do you need to believe in? What other rituals and practices and cultural experiences do you need to be complete?
