They went on to say that a 2010 survey was conducted which asked if people attended church regularly and regularly was defined as twice per month. Forty percent of the respondents said they attended regularly, but when they checked with the churches regarding their attendance, the percentage dropped to 21%.
I got a little smile on my face when they said that neither of the hosts attended church regularly because they liked to sleep in on Sunday and watch football. One of hosts said that he believed in God and that on judgment day it was his hope that the few times he attended church on Christmas and Easter would give him extra points.
They said that people who only attend church on Christmas and Easter were fakes and they should not go tomorrow because they won’t know what they are doing and they will most likely embarrass themselves.
The reason for my smile is that I have grown up in the church and it feels like a second home to me. I certainly don’t go to church for points and I hate to think that anyone would. I go for the relationship with my Savior, fellowship with my fellow Christians and I can’t imagine not being there.
Easter is a perfect time to go to church, whether you are used to it or not. But so are all of the other Sundays each year. I hope that no one feels that they have to go to services tomorrow, but if they do go, I hope they will find a warm Easter welcome that will cause them to come back again and again!
