Church Attendance Back to 'Normal' Since 9/11 Attacks

DALLAS ‚ÄĒ The emotional pain and search for answers after Sept. 11 had many flocking to religious services like never before. But, like many of the initial post-attack phenomenon, church attendance has since returned to normal.

A surge of spirituality occurred as Americans examined just how fragile life was and evaluated what was really important. Answers were hard to come by in the months that followed the attacks, and many sought solace in a higher power.

"After 9/11 we had 20-some odd thousand people show up," said Senior Pastor Ed Young. "The largest crowd in the history of Fellowship Church…and when I walked on stage I looked around and said, 'Where have you guys been? It takes something like this for you to show up to church?'" ...

>>Isn't this simply because people were seeking comfort, but NOT seeking Christ?

Exactly. After 9/11, when it seemed that everyone around me was praising America's "return" to God, I was skeptical (and rightly so, apparently). Returning to church is not the same as returning to God. And even if some lonely souls were truly seeking God, as I'm sure many were, would they even find Him in today's apostate mainline churches?

Pray for true repentance and revival--first in the churches, then in our nation. God is the only one who can save us from enemies within and without.

Thanks, Thomas Gormley, for your comments.

Let us also read the prophets, and realize that most of Israel did not return their faith to Him until the Babylonian captivity. It takes a LOT to get a man's attention, it seems.

Let us therefore preach Christ, realizing that we may be modern-day Jeremiahs.

Isn't this simply because people were seeking comfort, but NOT seeking Christ?

The real question to be addressed is: What is the Church offering to people in need? Offering comfort without Christ is (as proven here) only a short term provision.

I sense that many have been presenting churches (small "c") which are merely institutions of fallen men and women instead of presenting the Church (big "C") with Christ as its head.
