The hearts cry of every born again, child of God should be:

“Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:25-26

But - Charisma News reported a couple of years ago that, according to Barna, Eighty-four percent of Americans say they believe in the deity of Jesus Christ. Forty-five percent claim to be born-again Christians. Seventy-seven percent believe their chances of going to heaven are excellent. Thirty-three percent believe one day everyone will go to heaven. 

And according to USA Abortion 2,219 abortions are performed daily in America. It is estimated that ten [10] percent of the American population is homosexual. There are upward of forty murders daily in America and thousands of robberies [reported] daily. According to 2001-2002 statistics there were 17.6 million American adults who abused alcohol or were alcohol dependent. In 2008, there were an estimated 7 million drug addicts in the United States, [what must the numbers be today?].

Nearly two-thirds of today's marriages will end in divorce or separation. Forty-five percent of all first marriages end in divorce. It has been reported, erroneously, by George Barna  that born-again Christians have a higher rate of divorce than do nonbelievers. They quoted statistics of eighty seven percent of those were divorced after accepting Christ, presumably aware of the biblical teaching on divorce. As Christians we are called to come out of the world, not be a statistical part of it.

Evangelical leader Francis Schaeffer warned in the 1970s that affluence is spiritually dangerous for Christians. He pointed to the ancient words of the Hebrew prophets and said that those who need never to wonder where daily bread will come from soon stop praying for it — and turn to immorality.

No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and……” Matthew 6:24-25

America, I think you have arrived.!!.


  1. The divorce ratio is all wrong. I've read how they come up with such figures and they really don't make sense. A lot of it is counting marriages and divorces, and then comparing these as a ratio. But many divorces are multiples with the same persons, many are also short time marriages while others are long-time marriages. The claim that Christian marriages are at a higher ratio is also based on false comparisons. This problem has been well known for decades and yet they still use fallacious comparisons.

    Other than the numbers, it is a fact that divorce is more common nowadays, due to the laws making it so easy. And Christians are just as guilty - not more guilty - in refusing to hold faithful to their spouses.

    Otherwise, the problem with society is just as you note, and it is certainly going to get worse and worse as those proclaiming the name of Christ (but are actually liars) accept more and more of the world's immorality as right and proper.

  2. Thanks for updating the information.
