"“What we are experiencing is not the loss of Christianity, but the loss of Christian culture in the larger society,” he said.
Until relatively recently, Christians, their churches and practices have enjoyed center stage treatment in the U.S. and some other nations.
Pluralism has made religion one of many factors.
“It is the loss of Christian privileging in Western societies,” Leonard said." http://bit.ly/2k4KcdE
Europeans, it seems, are wondering if American Christianity has pretty much gone off the rails. A recent editorial in Great Britain’s The Guardian newspaper raised the question after describing the role faith has had in the “social and political convulsions” the U.S. is experiencing. Tha

"It seems to me that the vast majority of Americans have an approach similar to one of these two conditions when it comes to things that are going on in our nation and world. Many people I know are either overreactive/sensitized or dissociated. We seem to be either hyper-connected and ultra-sensitive, seeing each new story or event as the end of the world, or largely disconnected, overwhelmed by what we see and hear and retreating back to our private lives." #BNGcolumn by Corey Fields http://bit.ly/2jZW6FR

"First dividing ourselves into black and white churches, now Democrat and Republican or liberal, moderate and conservative, we have identified ourselves with politicians. We have made the results of an election cycle the message of God’s eternal kingdom. And it is too late to wash our hands of it now, to fire the swindlers, to admit that we do not see this new clothing." #BNGcolumn by Starlette McNeill http://bit.ly/2k4L6XA

“In America today, who is in the best position to generate a healthy conversation on challenges facing our society?”
The results show that less than a quarter of the adult population believes presidents are in the best position to spark those “healthy conversations,” LifeWay said in the report titled “American Views on Healthy Conversations Regarding Challenges Facing Society.”
Pastors came in second, but still low, overall. Only 11 percent of those surveyed said ministers are best suited to generate those conversations, LifeWay said.

Whether or not they voted for him, most Americans likely will not view Donald Trump as the solution to the nation’s problems once in office. And pastors enjoy even less confidence than presidents as the potential solution to the country’s woes, LifeWay Research discovered in polling conducted
