Why is church so boring?

Is church the way God intended it to be....

Why are their so many rules in today's church. There seems to be more rules than their our lives being transformed by Christ. A church is the Body of Christ and Christ being the head. Could it be that where living in our indivalistic lives that we become so numb to ourselves we can't feel the rest of our body.

Church should be a lifestlye where we come to God with our own dead skin and want to come alive in Christ. Romans 6:8-11 talkes about being made alive in Christ.

Why are their so many Pastors getting divorces because of having an affair with anothor women, struggling with pornography, having sexual assults? Where is the holy living at? What does your church look like? Is it fully engaged with God's word and growing through God's people? Are we so blind that we can't see a lost world out their in darkness or do we even care about what is going on around us, or even care about God's word? Why are we picking and choseing what we want to beleive and live by in the Bible?

Is this why time speeds up as we age?

We take fewer mental pictures per second.

Mind & Brain
  • Recent memories run in our brains like sped-up old movies.
  • In childhood, we capture images in our memory much more quickly.
  • The complexities of grownup neural pathways are no match for the direct routes of young brains.

In Switzerland, gun ownership is high but mass shootings are low. Why?

In the face of seemingly unstoppable gun violence, Americans could stand to gain by looking to the Swiss.

Politics & Current Affairs
  • According to a recent study, the U.S. had the second highest number of gun-related deaths in 2016 after Brazil.
  • Like the U.S., Switzerland has a high rate of gun ownership. However, it has a considerably lower rate of deaths from gun violence.
  • Though pro-gun advocates point to Switzerland as an example of how gun ownership doesn't have to correlate with mass shootings, Switzerland has very different regulations, practices, and policies related to guns than America.

Why are so many objects in space shaped like discs?

It's one of the most consistent patterns in the unviverse. What causes it?

  • Spinning discs are everywhere – just look at our solar system, the rings of Saturn, and all the spiral galaxies in the universe.
  • Spinning discs are the result of two things: The force of gravity and a phenomenon in physics called the conservation of angular momentum.
  • Gravity brings matter together; the closer the matter gets, the more it accelerates – much like an ice skater who spins faster and faster the closer their arms get to their body. Then, this spinning cloud collapses due to up and down and diagonal collisions that cancel each other out until the only motion they have in common is the spin – and voila: A flat disc.
