The number of people adhering to the Christian faith in America has been on a steep downward spiral since the advent of the current century. That trend is only accelerating. It will not be long and people identifying themselves as Christians will be a distinct minority in this country.
Here are snippets from a recent CBS report: Christianity has remained at the forefront of the nation’s political and social conversations for centuries — but new research shows that could be changing. A new report by Pew Research Center and the General Social Survey published on Tuesday found that the large numbers of people in the U.S who practice Christianity are declining. The religion’s demographic has been dwindling since the 1990s, the report said, as many adults transition to an identity of atheist, agnostic or “nothing in particular.” In the early ’90s, about 90% of people in the U.S. identified as Christians, the report said. In 2020, Christians accounted for about 64% of the U.S. population, including children. Meanwhile, those who are not affiliated with a religion have grown from 16% in 2007 to 30% in 2020, according to the research. All other religions, including Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism, accounted for about 6% in 2020.
The almost universal adoration of evangelicals for Donald Trump has cost the Church millions of adherents. Think of it: The only two Republican presidents of the 21st century so far are Donald Trump and G.W. Bush.
What Bush started Trump accelerated.
And it’s really not so much Bush and Trump themselves but the hysterical—almost fanatical—adulation that evangelicals have heaped on these men that disgusts people so much.
What’s at stake here is not the future of evangelicalism, but the future of FREEDOM.
As I have said over and over: America’s problems are not political, they are spiritual. And that means the solutions are spiritual. And that requires the action of spiritual men.
