Do-It-Yourself Religion

By Chuck Colson, BreakPoint

We often hear that most people in the United States believe in God, and if you trust the opinion polls, they do.

However, when you dig down a little bit, you’ll find this good news isn’t so good after all. According to a new book by George Barna entitled Futurecast, America is filled with people who are do-it-yourselfers when it comes to religion — either making up God as they go along or dropping traditional beliefs and practices, like going to church. Barna tells USA Today, “People say: ‘I believe in God. I believe the Bible is a good book. And then I believe whatever I want.’”

A nice reference to my book All That Jesus Asks in this good commentary from my friend Chuck Colson. Thanks, Chuck!

Here is the podcast.
