A Decline in Religion

I have taken notice of the decline in religion occurring in the USA. A new survey says just 48% of Americans actually participate in an organized religion - that is the lowest number ever recorded in this country. 

Now, there are a number of reasons why. Number one, secular values are heavily promoted in the entertainment and news industries. In fact, often traditional religious Americans are openly mocked. We all see it. And that filters down particularly to younger people whose lifestyle and belief systems are not fully formed. 

Number two, more and more people do not want to be held accountable for their behavior. Religion does that - the concept of sin. There's always an excuse for wrongdoing, a rationalization. 

And third, it's all about me these days, is it not? Nothing higher. Whatever is good for me is good in general. Well, that's not what theology says. Theology says on the Judeo-Christian front, you got to look out for your neighbor. You got to treat people the way you want to be treated. It's not all about you.
