Is Christianity dying? you betcha it is but it is hardly a new thing. In the U.S. A growing number of the population hasn't actually lived up to the
title of thier religion in decades. It is a call to follow the teachings of Christ, how many Christians have you seen that actually doing just that?
Today the typical Christians are to caught up trying to obtain material wealth, instead of practicing the hallmarks of their faith; chairity,
tolerence, and forgivness. All one really needs to do is turn on the T.V. to see what the once venerated preacher has turned into, little more than a
salesman selling a get rich quick scheme. Not to mention the Catholic sex abuse scandals. Not to mention that for some reason people run around
believing that salvation through Christ is a blank check to run around acting as heinously as they want, offer a half-hearted I am sorry and its ok
mentality. Now having these images associated with your faith it is very easy for one to become disenfranchised with it. Then to top it off you have
the ones trying to hijack the Government of the U.S. and turning it into something it is not. The purpose of the Government is to ensure that all of
the citizens of this country are protected and treated equally and fairly under the law(for those of you still paying attention this falls under
tolerence) nothing more nothing less. Christianity as a whole would be better served by the supposed adherents actually living the example instead of
trying to legislate it.
