Four Obstacles to Spiritual Depth

George Barna identified the following four obstacles to spiritual depth in American Christianity:

1.  Commitment:  Although American Christians say they have made some kind of personal commitment to Christ, their lives do not reflect this priority.

2.  Repentance:  Although they have repented of their sins and asked forgiveness, they continue in the same pattern.

3.  Activity:  Although busy with many activities, they do not engage in such spiritual growth practices as sharing their faith, fasting, solitude, extended time for prayer and medition.

4.  Spiritual Community:  Although they generally find comfort and connection at church, they do not share at a level of vulnurability and accountability.
