"Many unreligious Americans are willing to go to church, but not for the reasons you would think. …unchurched people are not attracted to church for the worship set or to learn more about God. Instead they are more willing to come to a church service or event if faith is not explicit. For example, 62 percent would attend a church meeting about neighborhood safety, community service event, 51 percent, sports or exercise program, 46 percent, concert, 45 percent, or an all-inclusive neighborhood event at a church, 45 percent. …Invite unchurched people to those kinds of events, and many say they will attend," he concluded. However, only 35 percent are interested in attending a worship service, 25 percent would attend a recovery group, and only 24 percent would attend a special seminar on a spiritual topic." –Source
Students of prophecy have been declaring this prophesied event about the modern day churches for many decades. It's sad that some organizations have to do a demographic "study" first before opening their eyes to the obvious that was written long ago. I have all sorts of blog entries, sermons and even some videos outlining how the churches in America and around the world are unable to bring the people in using Jesus Christ and His Word because most people simply don't want to hear it. They are more interested in their pastors participating in bare knuckle cage matches in the church as well as concerts, plays, beer nights and even tattoo nights in the churches. And who do you supposed they learned this from? Of course it was Satan himself prompting them to "tickle their ears" so as to ignore their hearts in the first place, but he used his favored man of sin in Rome to get the ball of confusion rolling.
All roads certainly do lead to Rome even today and this also includes the paths wreaking of apostasy. It was the Roman Catholic church that first came up with the idea to do Bingo nights and Las Vegas nights in their churches. And get this.. none of the 'unchurched' people that attend such events ever return for the church services, and Rome knows this after watching the stats on this the last few decades. So, why do they continue to do it anyway? For the money! That's why all the other churches do it as well. They have no choice in fact. Reason being is, none of them are obedient to the Lord and so none of them have the slightest clue as to what the Lord would have their pastors preach and this is why the mega-churches use sermon services and literal ghost er.. um.. demon writers to pen their notes for their weekly sermons. If they use the Bible instead of the ear tickling preachertainment they notice a major drop off in attendance and so that book (the Bible) is only used to circulate a flavor and or essence of Christianity so as to make those sitting in the pews assume they are doing their Christian duty by simply sitting there each week.
Prophecy will be fulfilled and in this case it was actually fulfilled decades ago. But because most preachers and pastors refuse to obey God so as to understand His prophetic Word, none of them could see this until decades later after they hired someone to do the demographic research for them. Students of prophecy only needed to open a Bible and read it. For it is written in… Isaiah 30:10 that many will, "say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:" And it is also declared in 2 Timothy 4:3, "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;"
