I was listening to a message recently that listed the top four reasons people give for not going to church. They are as follows:
Services are boring
The people are unfriendly
They just care about money
The questionable safety of their children
I know I’ve felt all four of those things at one time or another, but I still love church.
Do you think those reasons are valid? Can you think of any other reasons why people don’t like to go to church? Feel free to list them in the comments.
But hold on! Not so fast! It’s no good listing faults if you can’t suggest any solutions. What are some realistic things the church can do to remove these excuses? Let’s hear your best ideas!
