US Not a Christian Nation, But 'Fertile Ground' for Evangelism, Say Christian Leaders
After surveying a number of selected Christian leaders across the U.S., the National Association of Evangelicals has found that although 68 percent of these leaders do not believe the United States is a Christian nation, they do see it as one of the most fertile grounds for evangelism.
"Much of the world refers to America as a Christian nation, but most of our Christian leaders don't think so," Leith Anderson, the president of the NAE, said in a press release.
"The Bible only uses the word 'Christian' to describe people and not countries. Even those who say America is a Christian nation admit that there are lots of non-Christians and even anti-Christian beliefs and behaviors," he added....

Methinks we'll not see fields white unto harvest ever again. The coming of the Lord draweth nigh, but until then, we are to "preach the gospel to every creature".
During the course of my pilgrimage, I've only known one in fifty who would even think about doing such a bizarre thing as telling people about the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ. It's also a pity that discipleship is neglected in these last days, when even new converts are not encouraged to go out and about with the gospel.
For the encouragement of those who ARE going, the Lord Jesus promises to be with YOU, even unto the end of the world. And there is a rich reward for ALL who obey God in the Great Commission.
If it is difficult to find a "Christian Church", begin one in your house with one other, and focus ALL your thinking and teaching on the Lord Jesus Christ, and what he has done for sinners. God will bless it.
