Behind the wondering, for every believer, is the underlying question: "What if circumstances (or worse, I) messed up God's plan for my life?"
Generally speaking, you are not going to get most dropouts back into church by asking them. It's the stronghold – the false belief system they have bought into - that is preventing them.
A believer has all the opportunities that life provides through circumstances to disconnect themselves from the body of Christ.
The dropout believer once actively practiced his Christian faith in a community of believers, but no longer.
When I actually got quiet with the Lord, I discovered that this totally unexpected thing is totally biblical. It is totally God.
There are more dropout believers than those who are actively engaged in the church today.
There is a problem – a major problem – for all of us in the church in the West.
