Here we discuss to the common saying “”I am Spiritual, but not Religious.” This has become all the rage and is a very popular alternative spirituality. In their recent book Good Faith: Being a Christian When Society Thinks You’re Irrelevant and Extreme, David Kinnaman and Gabe Lyons document that 84 percent of Americans believe that “enjoying yourself is the highest goal of life.” Further, 86 percent believe that to enjoy yourself you must “pursue the things you desire most.” And 91 percent affirm this statement: “To find yourself, look within yourself.” These issues just feed into the common saying “I am spiritual, but not religious.”
