Is Religion Losing Influence in America?
Is religion losing influence in the U.S.? Most Americans say it is, but also think society would be better off if more people were religious, according to a recent poll.

A Gallup poll of 1,535 adults conducted earlier this month has revealed that 77 percent of Americans believe religion is losing its influence on American society, while 20 percent say its influence is on the rise. The poll results are the most negative evaluations of religion's influence in America since 1970.

By considering how often survey respondents attend church services or how highly they value religion, researchers determined that those who are considered "highly religious" and those who aren't religious are nearly equally as likely to believe religious influence is on the decline. Among those who attend church weekly, for example, 77 percent said religion is losing its influence, as compared to 72 percent of those who ...

I wouldn't say religion is losing influence but I definitely see christianity is . That's not good. I don't know what else to say. We can't even get along on sermon audio. Just what the devil craves. Division among believers. We only have ourselves to blame.

UPS, I liked your comment, but it fell down a little at the end because there's always The Inadequacy of Moralism. Muhammadan societies are really more corrupt than Western societies because of their perverted codes of conduct sanctioned by Islam's founder.

The Gospel Impacts Society, but only one person at a time. While the U.S. may had hit a peak of Christian influence in the 19th century. A Civil War, and the mistreatment of several groups of people would make one wonder how really deep did the current of a "Christian" society actually run? I would say, you might have found more individual acts of Christian behavior during that time period, which was very important, but a religious influence? If one was just looking at "religious" influence, the Romish Church has gained steadily in influence, much to the detriment of the country. The Perils of Popery.

I would say don't shoot the messenger. Obviously, we have never been a theocracy with the Lord God as our head. Sin has always been and will always be a corrupting factor in society. There was a time in our history when the population in general was more God--fearing and held to stricter moral values. That was part of the Judeo--Christian ethic that permeated our culture. That influence is being felt less and less in our day, and that is probably that to which this article is referring. It is a sign of the last days as our Lord said it would be like it was in the days of Noah (Matthew 24:37), and we know that in his day the imagination of the heart was only evil continually. Scripture also says things will become worse and worse (II Timothy 3:13)(sorry all you post millinialists) We are today becoming a society in which everyman does that which is right in his own eyes, this is due somewhat to the walking in the counsel of the ungodly philosophy of moral relativism being is taught in our schools and over the airwaves.

Influence? What influence?

Sin is the primary influence in America's life, always has been, still is.

God does not bless America because she kills the unborn infant in millions annually and even most of her churches have ditched the Bible to keep the sin.

With sin dominating the population and therefore most going to hell for eternity Satan has an increasing influence on the life of the nation. Government and bureaucracy demonstrates the wickedness of fallen man even more today than in previous history, ergo the decline is prominent and precipitate.

"Religion" today therefore is a vacuous entirely human game played out in a variety of nescient conjectures with no achievable object, and certainly no spiritual outcome.

"While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage." 2Peter 2:19.

Christianity may well be called The True Religion, but it isn't the only religion in the USA. As a religion, Secular Humanism is healthy and well.
