WEB Notes: They never really answered the question. People do not note why they stopped attending church in polls or the last time they enter the church doorway, they simply are no longer attracted to the message. Why is the question?…
It has a lot to do with what is taught these days and how the Gospel message is delivered. You could have the whole truth, but if you are unable to relay it to the people of our time, they are not going to receive the message.
You have to be intuned with the modern era. You have to use the tools of the modern era and go to the people. Just like in the days of old. Go to the people, give them that message at their level and then they will come to Christ.
South Carolina churches are shedding thousands of members a year, even as the state’s population grows by tens of thousands.
In the place we call the Bible Belt, where generations have hung their hats on their church-going nature and faithful traditions, an increasing trend of shrinking church attendance — and increasing church closings — signals a fundamental culture shift in South Carolina.
At least 97 Protestant churches across South Carolina have closed since 2011, according to data from the Lutheran, Presbyterian, United Methodist and Southern Baptist denominations. An untold number of other closings, certainly, are not captured by these statistics.
