 Many lie about going to church


Did you attend a worship service last weekend? Really?

God knows if you're telling the truth -- and so, in a way, does Philip Brenner, University of Michigan research fellow with the Institute for Social Research.
Brenner plowed through 400 surveys and time diaries across four decades with three quarters of a million respondents in 13 nations to find that Americans exaggerate their church attendance more than anyone else.

About 23% of Americans actually do attend church "regularly" (two or three times a month or more) according to time diaries (in which people account for 24 hours of recent activity). But 35% to 45% say they attend regularly when asked on surveys. ...

 Re: Many lie about going to church

I have not heard any real good sermons on lying in a long time. Does anyone know of any that are on here that shed light on this sin, and analyze it well from lots of facets? I have noticed over the years that it is a big deal in scripture, but I do not here many people or preachers hit this topic real hard. (That is not to say that they don't, my exposure is just not that broad.)

There is this one from Carter Conlon. I have not listened to it myself yet though.

We could start a thread on the topic. God has given me some insight into lying in order to keep me from sinning.

God Bless

 Re:

I was shocked when I read this Scripture. This will help keep us on the straight and narrow.

Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
