Polling Yourself

According the most recent Gallup polls on religion, updated June of 2007, 63% of Americans claim to be a member of a church or synagogue. When asked about attendance, only 31% admitted that they attend worship services once a week. Another interesting question, "As a whole, is religion gaining influence or losing influence in America?" 55% believed that religion was losing influence. Hmmm, I wonder why?! 63% claim membership and only 31% attend weekly. It is so difficult to figure out why religion is losing influence! How about this folks - "Go to worship!"
"Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you..." (James 4:8).

  1. A lot of times, people even lie about attending church. When asked if they attend, most say yes, because in the last year or so they showed up once. The first step to taking your faith seriously, is showing up for worship.
