Back in the early 1990’s when Christianity
was dominating others forms of religion, a lot
of people flock to church. But those numbers
seems to reduce over the years. The reasons
are put below, though some are assertions.
1. CHURCH ARE FULL OF HYPOCRITE.
No need to debate on this fact as its all clear
and decipherable. Perhaps, even in-
eradicable. We all say one thing and do the
other, we all criticize people and still turn
around to indulge in the same acts we were
vehemently against. The church is full of this
set of people, thus making people lack the
desire to go to church. Yes.. I am an
hypocrite, but with all due respect, you are
also an hypocrite.
2. THE CHURCH IS BORING.
You could chose to debate on this. Since when
was the church meant to be entertaining?.
Well! The church has witness a dramaticall
change over the years, and to some people,
this assertion is true.
3. THE CHURCH IS EXCLUSIVE.
The church has an exclusive message, which
is for everyone. The thing is, every one knows
the message, “Jesus brings salvation” etc. So
why bothering going to church to hear a
repetition of it?. This is also one of the reason
why people stay back from church, to them,
they know the message the bible and church
4. THERE DON’T HAVE TIME.
This is undoubtedly any major point. Simple,
they don’t have the time or are two busy.
People who are on work shift during the
weekend also fall into this category. This is
priority issue, but a valid reason nonetheless.
5. THEY DON’T HAVE CLOTHES.
Though this shouldn’t be an excuse for
Christians to stay back from church as they
worship the Lord and not men, it is a reason
why some people stay back from church.
I know of a church that laughs sadornically at
members that repeat clothes and attire. The
act alone is appaling. Instead of being laughed
at, some people choose to stay at home and
avert such mortification.
6. LIFE IS BETTER WITHOUT RELIGION.
This is an assertion but With that perspective,
people tend to neglect church since its the
“pillar” of religion. Going by the norms and
commandments of the church by being a
Christian are hectic for others. For me, i don’t
care much about religion but a better
relationship with God. Some people that
neglect church also hold to this assertion.
7.THE CHURCH WANT YOUR MONEY.
This is undoubtedly another congent reason. If
you go to a church that talks more about
offering and ransom than sermon, you’d
found this a valid point. Maybe the church is
faced with financial difficulties.
I think The Leaders should do more about
praying and trusting, for God will provide.
However, am ain’t advocating that members
shouldnt give to the church but It appalling
for leaders to “CHALLENGE” members into
giving, it should be a thing of the mind.
If you have a different perception of the
amazing nature of the God who created you,
you should find ways to reorganize your
priorities around such a wonderful God.
