Christianity has over the centuries been corrupted by false doctrines and traditions. As it is now, much of it is based on false premises: there is a tritheistic definition of God, where He is divided between three persons, many are taught that they just have to believe and do nothing, many do not believe in an afterlife and await some future resurrection, and there is no logical foundation for defining what portions of scripture are Divinely inspired or not. The Church is divided. Anyone who examines this will see the problem, and most churches are unable to address it. The end result is that many have left the Church. They either become a “spiritual independent,” or become a secular materialist, or if they keep looking will be tempted by other false ideologies or religions.
