These days, it’s cool to look for God—just as long as you don’t find him.
Today, our culture is all about “being spiritual, but not religious;” all about eternally seeking the Divine, but never claiming to have “found God.” The answer, we’re told, is to just keep asking the questions. From movie stars to academics to corporate gurus, the wisdom du jour tells us that, when it comes to spiritual things, the journey is important—not the destination. We value having the conversation, not reaching any conclusions. Looking within ourselves, not without. We’re into doubt, not certainty. In fact, if you think you really know something about God, you’re doing it wrong.
Churches have even begun to echo this spiritual fad. We’ve moved beyond the dogmatism and exclusive religious claims of ages past, and into a more flexible, organic spirituality—one more suited for today’s world. We’ve embraced the best aspects of the world’s faith traditions while rejecting the antiquated, narrow-minded elements of organized religion. After all,every religion teaches basically the same thing.
We’ve spiritually evolved.
So, why are people feeling emptier than ever?
Maybe we’ve missed something. Something big.
Maybe we weren’t meant to float from spiritual fad to spiritual fad, patching together a god of our own design. Perhaps we were intended to land on some answers. Perhaps God created us with some destination in mind, not just an aimless journey. What if he intended for us to actually find him? If that were the case, would you want to know?
