Christianity in Decline? Not Exactly

A few weeks ago we wrote about a new study by the Pew Research Center that suggests Christianity in America is in decline. As we noted, the fact is that younger Americans are significantly less likely to identify with a religion than older Americans, but there is more to the survey than meets the eye (nominal Christianity is no more Christianity than RINOs are Republicans, for example). And as Washington Post writer Wes Granberg-Michaelson points out, globally Christianity isn’t so much dying as it is shifting. “While Christianity may be on the decline in the United States, the world is becoming more religious, not less,” he writes. “While rising numbers of ‘nones’ — those who claim no religious affiliation when asked — claim the attention of religious pundits, the world tells a different story. Religious convictions are growing and shifting geographically in several dramatic ways.” Among the changes: “In 1980, more Christians were found in the global South than the North for the first time in 1,000 years. Today, the Christian community in Latin America and Africa, alone, account for 1 billion people.” You can read more about Granberg-Michaelson’s findings here, but suffice to say, not all is at it seems — or what the mainstream media wants you to believe.
