Study: Americans Not All Flocking to Bigger, Contemporary Churches
Most Americans change churches throughout their lives, but a new study shows that they are not flocking toward one particular house of worship. The American religious landscape remains diverse and not one worship style or form of church emerges as the dominant choice for the country's faithful.

"The findings show a lot of individual change, but not a lot of broad trends,” said Ron Sellers, president of Ellison Research. “Most people go to a place of worship that’s a different size, but there’s no strong trend toward finding smaller congregations or larger ones. There’s also a lot of change in worship styles, but not a big overall trend toward going someplace more contemporary or more traditional."

In a study of over 1,000 American adults, released Monday by Ellison Research, 69 percent of all Americans who currently attend worship services have attended more than one place of worship - which ...

Several pro-life student organizations across the country banded together to demand
IN AN OPEN LETTER TO RICK WARREN
that Warren raise the issue of sanctity of human life at his upcoming forum. Don’t hold your breath.Abortion, which has taken the lives of nearly 50 million Americans, is about as likely to get addressed at Saddleback as Obama’s well-documented past relationship with OBAMA'S COMMUNIST MENTOR Frank Marshall Davis. That is to say, it won’t be addressed by Rick Warren. That Barack Obama would have voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act in Illinois more than once says everything a Christian needs to know about his values. That John McCain would consider a
PRO-ABORTION RUNNING MATE
tells me everything I need to know about him. That these two men are the best both political parties can offer for leadership tells me everything I need to know about America.

Stand up for Jesus, stand in His strength alone;The arm of flesh will fail you,ye dare not trust your own.

Jim,

I've appreciated your links from your posts in the past. So, thank you. And, I've listened to your pastor, and read some of his writings that you have linked.

Here, he makes a statement that one who is not in the local church is not a christian. That is too broad a statement, and one that should be re-thought.

Something else - his emphasis is on "going to church" rather than "being the church." No where in N.T. Scripture do we find Christians "going to church" - rather, they are called the church. They function as a living organism, not an organization, though they are given instructions for organizing and using their God-given gifts.

Too much emphasis has been placed on "where" one "goes" to church rather than "being" the church.

We have been "members" of 2 churches over the past decade. One moved toward antinomianism, and the other toward mysticism. These would call themselves evangelical.

Your pastor did not consider a situation like ours, nor others, when he made his broad inclusive statement.
