VerbosityCat Posted September 16, 2018 Share Posted September 16, 2018 This information is made even more enjoyable to read by the fact that it's posted on some fundie blog, and it's nearly a decade old (but that means the news is probably even better): http://signsofthelastdays.com/archives/the-decline-of-christianity-in-america My assumption is that due to the freeflow of information and the churches in decline, even more evangelical churches feel greater and greater pressure to preach a "feel good" message and avoid topics like hell or exclusivity because let's face it EVERYBODY knows an unbeliever now. Or has a gay family member of friend or etc. We are not the homogenous "Christian values culture" of the 50s. In order to keep butts in seats and fill the offering plate, my bet is many churches feel the need to soft pedal most of these issues, maybe thinking they will delve deeper in bible studies once they get people more committed to church. Except all they are doing is hastening their own demise because how far is it between "Jesus isn't the only way to Heaven" and "What the fuck am I getting up so early on Sunday morning for then?" 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
