Many Christians would rather feel holy/spiritual/righteous/good than actually be holy/spiritual/righteous/good.
Church becomes a place that makes sinners feel better about themselves without addressing their sin.
Since sin isn’t addressed, people go home and sin. Then they feel bad because deep down they know sin is bad. They feel guilty.
What shall we do with the guilt?
Ooo, ooo! I know: Let’s get together and sing happy songs and exchange happy thoughts until we all feel holy/spiritual/righteous/good again!
Awesome! All the guilt goes away. We all feel loved and fulfilled. All ready for a new week of sinning!
This goes on week after week until finally the person just gives up. They know the whole thing is a sham. Church practice shows that sin isn’t that big of a deal anyway. I did my time. God loves me, the church has told me that for years, so, I’m out.
