God only wanted in times of trouble

If you ask someone if they believe in God, chances are the answer will be yes. Now ask that same person if they go to church on a regular basis. The chance of that person saying no is bigger than a skyscraper.

So why is it that so many people will claim a belief in God, yet they won’t take the time to go through the whole church, prayer and Bible thing? There’s always the debate that God is just this higher power and that he’s everywhere, so why go to church? But then again one can argue that without church, Christianity is a lie. Well seeing as how this is an opinion column, I’m going to give you my honest opinion about it all.

For some people, God, or a god, is just a figment of their imagination. Someone to thank when an exam is passed, or someone to curse when you stub your toe in the morning. The fact of the matter is that people are fickle. We only want to think about a greater power when it suits us: times like natural disasters, economic downturns, or child birth.

So the question is posed to you, as a participant in this game called existence. Are you a God follower or just looking for the next big cosmic force?
