latest survey on American religious viewsThe LATEST NUMBERS ARE IN....drum roll please...they are getting WORSE for Christianity in America...shocking I know. While people who desire SPIRITUALITY is said to be increasing (according to some research), those who claim to be CHRISTIANS (called religious) are dropping.
Many are leaving the faiths of their childhood to switch to other faiths or abandoning all together. I wonder how much the CHURCH has to do with that? We are still getting freakin' criticized for trying to help people find the SAVIOR and grow in HIM. While some churches throw stones, we are out actually fighting the battle...trying to introduce people to the SAVIOR. Not just build attendance.
If churches in AMERICA (and elsewhere) keep hiding out and building bigger sheep pens and keep flinging sheep dung at those outside the pen...we are in a WORLD of hurt... well, we already are. WE HAVE GOT TO WAKE UP. WE HAVE GOT TO JOIN TOGETHER IN JESUS NAME.
Ghandi said it best (something like this)..."I like your CHRIST, it's your CHRISTIANS I don't like." Is your CHURCH and is NEW HOPE doing all we can to reverse this trend? God help us be like you. We want to look like you. That's our cry.
blessings and peace.
