WEB Notes: The subject appears to lean more towards, ‘since church attendance is declining, is that making Christians have anxiety’. The answer is “no” to that statement. However, church attendance is and has declined, this article even points that out. I am not here to puff up your sails with lies, I am here to tell you the truth…
Look folks, we have homosexual pastors and teachers these days and you honestly think church attendance is going to rise? There is a reason for Christianity’s decline and it has nothing to do with God, but how we, as teachers and pastors relay God’s Message to the world. We have corrupted His Word as a people, making excuses for sinners so their sin is not only accepted by the church, but they have become religious teachers.
There are some Christians out there whose elevator still tops out and they see this filth and recognize it is not from God or sanctioned by Him. So they leave the church. They go home and read the Bible to themselves or they find websites like ours and study with us.
That is the way it is.
We cannot sugar coat it, we cannot hide it. We should point out why Christianity is declining to root out the problem, not mask it over.
The problem is, there are not many people out there willing to address the problems, because it is just a little too unpopular. If you are not man enough to tell it like it is then you have nothing to tell the people, so sit down and let someone else do the job. God does not need fakes, slackers or whiners. He needs men and woman to share His Word with the world, and all of it, not just the parts that do not offend.
“Meanwhile, a widespread decline in churchgoing and religious affiliation had contributed to a growing anxiety among conservative believers.” Statements like this are uttered with such confidence and frequency that most Americans accept them as uncontested truisms. This one emerged just this month in an exceedingly silly article in The Atlantic on Vice President Mike Pence.
Religious faith in America is going the way of the Yellow Pages and travel maps, we keep hearing. It’s just a matter of time until Christianity’s total and happy extinction, chortle our cultural elites. Is this true? Is churchgoing and religious adherence really in “widespread decline” so much so that conservative believers should suffer “growing anxiety”?
