A new study says people who continue to move from church to church to satisfy their felt needs – do not grow. Do you agree? Socialist studies say that North America’s spiritual life is stunted because of our meager committment to the church. Studies have concluded that we are a radically individualistic society, and more “”me-centered” than any other culture or people in world history. Faith has become all about me and about God’s wonderful plan for me, my spiritual gifts and how God can meet my needs. Thus, people move from church to church in search of what will better satisfy them and their needs.
Persons who remain connected with their brothers and sisters in the local church grow in self-understanding and mature in the ability to relate in healthy ways to God and others in Christ.
