The percentage of Americans identifying themselves as 'Christian' has decreased from 86% in 1990 to 76% currently. Mainline Protestant churches have slipped from 19% to 13%. Clearly, churches are not doing a good job of offering something meaningful to spiritual seekers. Maybe that is because we have abandoned our core teaching about sin and the crucifixion in favor of feel-good lessons on spiritual puppy dogs and unicorns. Maybe, in an effort to make church "enjoyable", we have dumbed it down to the point that it offers no challenge to serious seekers of spiritual growth.

Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Kentucky, was built on the casting floor of a 19th Century iron blast furnace. We use "The Casting Floor" as an image for the power of the Spirit to form us. Visit us at http://communitypresbyterian.org.
