Christianity Lite

"I'm spiritual, but not religious is a common refrain heard today..." Riiiight. "...why people feel that Christianity is lacking as a source of religious meaning and transcendence." "This Christian-lite church is good at living the zeitgeist, of sleeping the sleep of secular man; but when a person wakes up and is hungry for real meat and thirsty for real drink, Christian-lite doesn't satisfy..." Interesting article on those that claim to be 'spiritual' but not 'religious'. An excellent example of this, even within Christianity itself, is the Lakewood mega-church here in Houston, Texas. The pastor is Joel Osteen and Victoria Osteen. Listening to Joel Osteen is like listening to Cardinal Mahony (of L.A.) or any number of priests here in the Houston-Galveston Archdiocese where they fail to mention 'prayer', the 'Bible', or anything 'Christian', except for 'feel-good' ministrations! God bless Joel Osteens heart, but I don't believe he has even read the Bible through or understand many of it's theological underpinnings. He speaks like a politician, always avoiding the 'meat-and-potatoes' and charging head-strong into fluffy cakes and cotton speeches. For more on Christianity lite, click here.
