The U.S. Has Become Less Christian

I believe we as Christians need to come to a harsh reality about our country; We are walking away from God. Now, I know that all don’t agree with me, but I believe this fact to be true. The Los Angeles Times published an article last year that was titled, “U.S. has become notably less Christian, major study finds”. In this article it stated:

“The U.S. has become significantly less Christian in recent years as the share of American adults who espouse no systematic religious belief increased sharply, a major new study found. For what is probably the first time in U.S. history, the number of American Christians has declined. The erosion in traditional religious ranks seems likely to continue. Among Americans aged 18 to 33, slightly more than half identify as Christian, compared with roughly 8 in 10 in the baby boom generation and older age groups, the new data show. Over the last seven years, the number of people who identify as atheist or agnostic has doubled.Moreover, in a reverse of previous patterns, younger Americans do not appear to be adhering more to traditional faiths as they become parents. Just the opposite seems to be happening — members of the millennial generation have grown less religious as they age.”

I appreciate your right to disagree with me on this point, but I pray that you will agree with me to be in prayer for our country. Take time each day to pray for the Holy Spirit to be poured out on this country like never before. Pray for people’s lives to be touched and moved in a way they have never experienced. Pray that our country will no longer be “significantly less Christian”,but become “significantly more Christian”.

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
