People delaying religion: study
Not only are longer life expectancies allowing people to postpone retirement, they feel less rushed to make peace with God, a new study suggests.

Research out of the United Kingdom links the decline in religious participation in developed countries, where life expectancies are high, and the idea that time isn't running out as fast on people's chances to secure a place in heaven.

"Many religions and societies link to some degree the cumulative amount of religious effort to benefits in the afterlife," said Elissaios Papyrakis, an economist at the University of East Anglia and one of the study's authors. "We show that higher life expectancy discounts expected benefits in the afterlife and is therefore likely to lead to postponement of religiosity, without necessarily jeopardizing benefits in the afterlife." ...

Well, I don't know that "religion" has ever really helped anyone, but it is foolish to presume upon the future and put off repentance.

Isaiah 55:6-7 - "Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon."

II Corinthians 6:2 - "(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)"

""Many religions and societies link to some degree the cumulative amount of religious effort to benefits in the afterlife," said Elissaios Papyrakis, an economist at the University of East Anglia and one of the study's authors."

I wouldn't believe anything religious which came out of the UK today anyway - Now that the UK is the United Kingdom of Sodom and Gomorah.

But "religious effort = benefits in the afterlife" - Liberalism, Roman Catholicism and JW'ism etc all peddle works based religion or salvation by works as its known as. So this is probably where they get their daft ideas from, for this daft conclusion.
