Reading Time: 4 minutes After I’d read PRRI’s writeup of their survey, I wondered what those Christians were saying about it. So I went looking. Today, I’ll show you what I found — and maybe we’ll figure out why white evangelicals have been silent so far about this survey.
Reading Time: 5 minutes Recently, the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) released a huge, absolutely groundbreaking survey of Americans. This survey revealed some eye-opening shifts in how Americans practice Christianity — and how the religion’s demographic makeup has changed in the past 7 years. Today, let me show you this survey, and let’s talk about its major findings.
Reading Time: 6 minutes Today, let’s explore Ed Litton and his strange opinion of QAnon, and then let’s see why he’s dead wrong.
Reading Time: 10 minutes Ed Stetzer wrote a recent post seeking to reassure his tribe, the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). He wants them to stop panicking about their kids’ disengagement from Christianity. But this attempt backfires in the end, just like everything else the SBC is doing to halt its decline.
Reading Time: 13 minutes Recently, some irresponsible folks over at Newsweek let him and a pal blather at length about how they perceive the SBC’s decline. Come see these two ear-ticklers get set straight!
Reading Time: 12 minutes White evangelicals are standing behind their chosen champion through all manner of scandals. I was surprised at first that this scandal is sticking so hard to our Jerkweed-in-Chief, but really, it isn’t all that surprising–and I’ll show you why it isn’t.
Reading Time: 10 minutes The 2017 PRRI study, America’s Changing Religious Identity, has brought the religion’s leaders yet more bad news. And their response has been predictable.
Reading Time: 13 minutes We are in the midst of a vast change in morality that is every bit as epochal as the Great Vowel Shift that brought us modern English pronunciation. This Great Morality Shift is sweeping us into a new era of Christianity, defining its adherents’ behavior and goals for years to come. Like most huge changes, though, this is one that is difficult to see while it’s happening. It took me a while to notice it myself. But now I see clear indications of where the religion is heading. I’ll show you one of the biggest indications of that change here today.
Reading Time: 11 minutes They’re doing everything they know how to do as best they can, and yet they are not being rewarded by Jesus with their free boyfriend or girlfriend.
Reading Time: 8 minutes Christian leaders themselves can spin-doctor the latest bad news as much as they like (and oh, they have been!), but reality is unfolding in their ranks whether they like it or not. Their flocks don’t have the luxury of denial. They’ve had to come up with strategies for dealing with the new reality of Christianity’s demographic shift, most of it in direct defiance of their leaders’ demands.
