Do you ever wonder why mega-churches are so on fire? People pour into their stadium seats week and after week (and on Wednesday nights too!) to hear a message, fill up and participate in fellowship. But, I suppose you – ideally – can find those things at any community gathering or church, right? So, what is it about these churches?
We are a world of sinners looking for solace. We want to know that it is ok. We want to know that we are good people. And we want to feel that we are doing good deeds. But, these churches promise these feel-good messages in bulk. And, they are often able to do so without what many have coined “Catholic Guilt.” Who wants to feel bad about themselves when deep down we know we are full of error? Isn’t Jesus supposed to make us feel better?
Well, yes. But.
The reason I am Catholic might be the reason that many stay away. Head over to A Modern Grace to hear what it is that I love about Catholicism. This post ran about a month ago, but I want you to read it. Got it?
