Bible Belt

Matthew 7:21-23.
I was born and raised in the Bible Belt. Everywhere you look there are churches, crosses, Christian books stores, God Loves You on bumper stickers, little fish symbols on the back of 4 out of 5 cars, everyone goes to church, everyone claims to love Jesus, everyone is talking about this Bible study or that Bible study......BUT why has none of these people came and knocked on my door out of love and concern to share with me Jesus Christ? The answer is that everyone here in this blessed region of the country thinks because their neighbor goes to church and can paraphrase some scripture that it means they are saved. A thing that happens many times here in the Bible Belt is we are taught the answers to the questions BEFORE we understand what we are being asked. I came across this article via Notes from the Trail and I thought it was a very good read.
