In the west, Christianity is dwindling rapidly. In the late 1970s, 90% of adults in America identified as Christians. A recent survey by Pew research discovered that only 65% of adults identify as Christians. That’s a 25% drop, and In a country that boasts more than 258 million adults, 25% is not a trifle. It’s a whopping 64.5 million.
Now the question is, why in tarnation, if 65% of voters are Christians, is abortion still legal? Are some of these Christians brainwashed into believing that killing 45 million babies every year is just totally fine? For reference, 11 million people died in the holocaust. They are making Hitler look like a fetus (or whatever they are calling babies these days.)
So do you ever wonder why we are losing? Why is homosexuality allowed? Why is abortion is legal?
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” — Sun Tzu
Sun Tzu said it. “If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” The church in America needs to get back to the Bible. If we don’t read the Bible, how are who we follow? We need to know who we are as Christians.
We are losing because the church forgot the Bible.
"Visit many good books, but live in the Bible." — Spurgeon
Are you living in the Bible? If you are not reading the Bible every day, as much as I hate to say it, you are part of the problem. God didn’t give us the Bible to decorate our bookshelves. He gave it to us to read.
We are all pawns in this Crazyhouse chess game for world dominion. It’s a pitched-out battle, and the Good Book is our fighting manual. If we don’t read the plans, how are we to succeed? When the pawns are all marching to the beat of their own tune, it’s no wonder we are losing the battle for America.
