Professing to be wise, they became fools, and

 changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image

          made like corruptible man.

                 (Romans 1:22-23)

 

Humanity is not disinterested in religion. In fact, all human beings at the core of their souls are homo-religioso. That is, every person is attempting to find something, someone, or some experience that transcends the temporal—besides what Pascal describes as “trying to fill that vacuumous space with the presence of an eternal God.” But when the church begins to look, act, and sound like every other place that people can go, no distinction can be identified between Christianity and the culture. Thus, people walk away.
