Is America Becoming An Anti-Christ Nation?

Once upon a time, America was a Christian nation.  I know that many on the left cringe when they read a statement like that, but it is true.  

For most of our history, the population of the United States was overwhelmingly Christian, and the values that governed our society were primarily Christian values.  But of course everything has changed in recent decades.  

When Barack Obama boldly declared that "we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation" in 2009, he was speaking the truth.  We are no longer a Christian nation and we haven't been for a very long time.  So if we aren't a Christian nation at this point, what exactly are we?

According to the Pew Research Center, 64 percent of Americans still considered themselves to be "Christians" in 2020...

About 64% of Americans call themselves Christian today. That might sound like a lot, but 50 years ago that number was 90%, according to a 2020 Pew Research Center study. That same survey said the Christian majority in the US may disappear by 2070.

If nearly two-thirds of your people consider themselves to be "Christians", that would seem to indicate that you are a Christian nation.

But we obviously aren't.

Just look around.

Many of the signs and symbols and messages that we see all around us are overtly anti-Christian.

So what in the world is going on?

Ultimately, there are lots of Americans that still identify themselves as "Christians" even though they have completely abandoned everything that Christianity represents.

Joe Biden is a perfect example.  He says that he is a "Christian" and he attends church regularly.

But then the rest of the time he is working very hard against virtually everything that the Bible teaches.

Of course he is far from alone.

According to George Barna, 6 percent of Americans had a "biblical worldview" in 2020, and by 2023 that figure had dropped to just 4 percent...

The first national study of Americans' worldview since the COVID-19 lockdowns shows that the incidence of biblical worldview has fallen to a mere 4%--a drop of one third from the 6% recorded just three years earlier.

In fact, the 6% benchmark measure recorded in January 2020 may prove to be the high-water mark of biblical worldview among American adults for the foreseeable future, according to a new report from the American Worldview Inventory 2023 from the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University.

I wish that I could tell you that his numbers aren't accurate.

But I can't.

Barna says that there is a second group that has "a substantial number of beliefs and behaviors consistent with biblical principles", but unfortunately that group fell from 25 percent of the population in 2020 to just 14 percent in 2023...

The number of adults who don't possess a biblical worldview, but still hold "a substantial number of beliefs and behaviors consistent with biblical principles," has also fallen dramatically. Only one of every seven adults (14%) belong to the category of what Barna identifies as an "Emergent Follower." That number was 25% only three years ago.

When you add the first two groups together, it comes to a grand total of 18 percent of the population.

That is just depressing.

So what about everyone else?

Well, just about everyone else would fall into Barna's "world citizen" category...

The bulk of the American adult population--82%--falls into the "World Citizen" category, described as people "who may embrace a few biblical principles but generally believe and behave in ways that are distinct from biblical teaching." According to the report, this group has grown substantially from the 69% registered in 2020.

I think that the term "world citizen" perfectly describes most people these days.

Sadly, on at least some level the vast majority of the population has embraced the new values that are constantly being pushed on us by the western elite.

And this is clearly showing up in the poll numbers.

Survey after survey has shown that close to two-thirds of the U.S. population disapproves of the Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe v. Wade.  Here is just one example...

About two-thirds (65%) oppose the 2022 Supreme Court decision, Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, and 34% approve, numbers that have remained effectively unchanged in CNN's polling across the nearly two years since the ruling. Those who strongly disapprove of the decision continue to outnumber those who strongly approve by a more than 2-to-1 margin.

We live in a country in which nearly two-thirds of the population claims to be Christian, but nearly two-thirds of the population also wants Roe v. Wade back.

That doesn't make any sense at all.

Surveys on other topics tell a similar story.

According to a Gallup survey that was conducted last year, 71 percent of the population approves of gay marriage, and a Gallup survey that was conducted earlier this year discovered that 22.3 percent of Generation Z adults now identify as LGBTQ+...

Overall, each younger generation is about twice as likely as the generation that preceded it to identify as LGBTQ+. More than one in five Gen Z adults, ranging in age from 18 to 26 in 2023, identify as LGBTQ+, as do nearly one in 10 millennials (aged 27 to 42). The percentage drops to less than 5% of Generation X, 2% of baby boomers and 1% of the Silent Generation.

Bisexuality is the most common LGBTQ+ status among Generation Z, millennials and Generation X. Fifteen percent of all Generation Z adults -- representing more than two-thirds of those with an LGBTQ+ identification -- are bisexual.

What values are being relentlessly promoted by just about every major institution in our society?

Is it Christ and His values that are being promoted?

Or is it the opposite?

At this point, even the U.S. military is systematically promoting values that are directly opposed to the values that we find in the Bible...

Judicial Watch announced today it received 25 pages of records regarding drag shows, drag story hours and other pride events for military personnel and their dependent minors organized and paid for by the U.S. Air Force.

The documents were obtained through a May 5, 2023, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request submitted to the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) by Judicial Watch and CatholicVote Civic Action. The Defense Department issued at least half a dozen "no records" responses to the FOIA request prior to finally releasing these records.

Jesus said that you would know a tree by the fruit that it produces.

Needless to say, the fruit that America is producing is not Christian fruit.
