Here is an interesting article about the so-called spiritual decline in the USA. Interesting how some folks think themselves less “spiritual” if they entirely abandon any and all so-called formal religion; while others are in hot pursuit of answers wherever they can find them, so long as their felt-needs are met. And so the pendulum swings….
The findings in this article are not all that stunning actually, but appear to be further confirmation that, what once claimed to be at the religious helm in the USA was nothing more than an empty shell. Folks are finally beginning to realize this sad truth; the mask is being pulled away from religion(s) that has long been just skin deep.
Though there is reason to lament here (being that what was claiming Christ’s name, lacked Christ’s grace and truth), there is reason to rejoice. The house is being cleansed.
Superficial religiosity, no matter how well meaning or busy, will always be found out. Preaching everything but Christ crucified will wear out with using, no matter how “helpful and good” it initially appears. In the end…it’s never worth its salt.
