Bad News: Religious Followers are Becoming a Minority as the Secular Society Becomes the Majority 9/7/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

The UK National Centre for Social Research in a survey of 2,942 adults found that 53% of those polled said they have no religion and among those 18 to 25, 71% said they have no religion. Among those 75 and up, 75% of them were religious and those that were born into a religious household, four in 10 are no longer religious. Here in America, AP reports on a poll conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute that showed that the number of whites that identify as Christian is only 43% now.

These recent trends should not surprise anyone as we have seen our culture become more secular and religious practice decline as the society has grown more secular. This is a disturbing trend though, especially for millennials that so many are turning away from faith because this will only cause more problems and greater conflict in our society as people move further from the light, the greater that darkness will grow and as a culture we are going to become more self-centered, more heartless, more immoral, and we are gonna have more problems than we could ever imagine because if we don’t have a moral, religious foundation of principles in which we live, then anythingwill be ok.

Actually I believe the anything goes culture is already here and look at how many problems and broken lives and families we already have. If this trend continues, imagine how bad society will be in ten years.
