(CNN) -- America is a less Christian nation than it was 20 years ago, and Christianity is not losing out to other religions, but primarily to a rejection of religion altogether, a survey published Monday found.
The article says:
One in three Americans consider themselves evangelical, and the number of people associated with mega-churches has skyrocketed from less than 200,000 in 1990 to more than 8 million in the latest survey.
The rise in evangelical Christianity is contributing to the rejection of religion altogether by some Americans, said Mark Silk of Trinity College.
"In the 1990s, it really sunk in on the American public generally that there was a long-lasting 'religious right' connected to a political party, and that turned a lot of people the other way," he said of the link between the Republican Party and groups such as the Moral Majority and Focus on the Family.
So the question is: which way is it gonna go? Will society polarize? Will one group or the other lose out? I think that in that case, the religious folk stand to lose ground in the long run.
There is a reason the Bible preaches that pride is a sin. The problem, as I see it, with evangelical Christianity is that it emphasizes pride way too much. Makes people haughty and arrogant and that will ultimately be the end of it. Alternatively, it will continue to attract a certain element of society.
