Pew: America is Giving Up On God

This news from Pew Research should be troubling to us all...but not surprising.

Pew: Americans giving up on God, miracles

Half of Americans who have left their church no longer believe in God, leading a surge of nearly one quarter of the nation who have no affiliation with any religion, according to a new survey.

Pew Research Center said Wednesday that 49 percent of what they term "nones" left their church and religion because they "don't believe." Another 20 percent said they don't like organized religion. Other reasons included "common sense" and a lack of belief in miracles.

The survey is the latest from Pew that demonstrates a growing trend in America: more and more people are junking religion and many are giving up on God.

Pew interviewed several respondents to try and find a reason. Pew Said for example:

"About half of current religious 'nones' who were raised in a religion (49%) indicate that a lack of belief led them to move away from religion. This includes many respondents who mention 'science' as the reason they do not believe in religious teachings, including one who said 'I'm a scientist now, and I don't believe in miracles.' Others reference 'common sense,' 'logic' or a 'lack of evidence' – or simply say they do not believe in God."


The Bible says in Psalms 33:12;
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.

Believe me and believe will NOT GO WELL for America as we head down the path of godlessness.  If this trend continues, we can expect to see more murder, more lawlessness, more abortion, more fornication, more perversion, more natural disasters, more financial calamity, more suicide, more hopelessness.

It's just what happens when the majority of citizens reject their Creator and refuse to abide by His Word and a healthy FEAR OF THE LORD.
