Questions For Christians Series #1: Christian Image

I’m launching a new series called Questions For Christians. These questions are compiled from personal conversations and research from non-believers.

QUESTION:

If Christians are so worried about their faith, why is it that 10% of Christians now go to church just to say they can without actually going to LEARN?

ANSWER:
Christians who are “worried” about their faith usually fit into just one category: those that go to church to learn and to grow their faith and their relationship with Christ. Typically, Christians are even more worried about the faith of others*.

While there is no way to accurately determine the percentage of Christians who attend church for an appearance, I can assure you that it is probably fewer than you think. There are vocal Christians, and there are vocal and acting Christians.

Christians who are vocal tend to vocalize their faith in Jesus but they don’t feel the convictions or obligations to abide by Biblical laws or even try to. These people may fall under the idea you have of attending church to say they did. Christians who are both vocal and acting, will not only vocalize their beliefs but in many ways follow the Bible and better themselves and who have a relationship with The Lord. These Christians may be in the minority now-a-days but it our job as Christians to keep each other on the right path with God (Matthew 18:15-17, Galatians 6:1-2, Luke 17:3.)
