Author reveals alarming stats about Christians

Post by ccm2361 on March 8th 2018, 3:53 pm

check this out guys.

Jonathan Bock, co-author of “The Way Back: How Christians Blew Our Credibility and How We Get It Back.”

Bock and co-author Phil Cooke looked at statistics from Gallup, the Pew Research Center and LifeWay to get the data on how many so-called Christians are living out their faith. Did you know that 40 percent of Christians who go to church “rarely or never” open their Bible?

“We were absolutely shocked,” Bock said. “All of the things that non-Christians are saying about us, that we’re hypocritical … it’s true.”

Here are some of the numbers he cited:

   While 70 to 80 percent of Americans call themselves Christians, just 20 percent go to church.
   That 20 percent counts people as “regular” church attendees if they go just 19 times a year.
   37 percent of Christians who go to church don’t think prayer is essential.
   Of the 20 percent who attend church, only 10 percent tithe a tenth of their income.


That is sad Crying or Very sad  no wonder our country is such a mess

Many are called but few are chosen.

I'm reminded of how Europe's birthrate is negative. When you remove the Muslim immigration factor, Europe is dying off. You could say the same thing about Christianity outside of Africa and Asia. Christianity's "born-again rate" is negative. For a variety of reasons, fewer and fewer Christians, especially as a percentage, exist in North America and Europe. What does Christ call us to do?

Great apostasy falling away must come first.
