Is there a trend to stop regular church going denominations, toward spirituality that does not involve going?

Karmageddon asked the question:


“Americans for years have been moving away from belonging to a denomination and toward a general spirituality that may or may not involve regular churchgoing.”

    Yep. It’s been going on for well over a generation.

    Ironically, I think lower church attendance is due to people taking religion MORE seriously. Namely, taking it seriously enough to realize that there’s no point in forcing oneself to go along with the same religion their parents had if it’s something one doesn’t believe in.

    If you already have the polling data in front of you, why are you asking the question?

    Love is in the air, well no!. A person not belonging to Christ cannot send away the dark one.

    Maybe, but it has its drawbacks.

    The institutional church enables people to contribute to orphanages, hospitals, schools, etc, in an organized way, and keeps the momentum up. I’m all in favor of sleeping in, but I know myself well enough to know that if I’m not in a program, I won’t be self disciplined enough to get anything worthwhile done.

    It is true. The reason is because people are sick of no answers to their questions and being dictated to by a person with their head in the clouds. Unrealistic unattainable demands on people usually end up in the bin where they belong.

    1 Timothy 4:1
    But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons,
