The snide politics of Christian decline


Christianity in the United States is in decline
Mainline churches have consistently lost members since the 1950s
During the 1960s one could brush off the vocal evangelicals
Now evangelicals are vocal but their very vocality is a symptom of decline
They have sacrificed their Biblical anchor for a right wing agenda
This is snide politics
It cannot conceal decline
In 50 years the evangelical churches will suffer the same losses as the  mainline
The world is moving to a universal spirituality based on willed values
Democracy tolerance helpfulness non-idolatry
Jesus himself had no desire to foster a religion
Or to be an object of worship
He instructed worship of Abba alone
He had no interest in snide politics nor in a right wing political agenda
