“I hear some people say they are ‘spiritual’ but not ‘religious.’ What do they mean?”— Judy
The place to start is to ask your friends what they mean by this statement. Absent their response here, we can make a few general observations.
Some individuals who say this often are expressing their rejection of “institutional” religion. They may have been burned by an unpleasant “church” experience or perhaps simply consider themselves above the mundane, human-shaped thing which often passes for “church” in our day.
Their critique is not entirely unwarranted — there is plenty of room for improvement if not radical change in the way “church” often appears in our culture.
