Pollster George Barna has published a new book, Futurecast, that tracks changes in America’s religious views over the last decade. One alarming trend is the decreasing church attendance, Bible reading, prayer and worship among professing Christians. The category “unchurched” has grown from 24% to 37% in the last ten years. Yet more people claim faith in Jesus as their savior and expect a heavenly reward than ever before. What caused this enigma? Barna blames it on the Sinners Prayer. For too long multitudes of preachers have told people that all they have to do is repeat this little prayer. But conversion is not about parroting a prayer, it is about transforming one’s life and thinking. It is about becoming a new person. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
