Christianity drops in the US: View the latest stats

The Pew Research Center carried out a seven (7) years research exercise in the US and found out that Christianity between 2007 to 2014 have experienced a fall from her chats in an unlikely manner. Below are the analysis as gathered from the Pew Research Center:
During the seven-year period, the percentage of Americans who say they believe in God fell from 92% to 89%, the percentage who said they pray daily fell from 58% to 55%, and the percentage who attend church at least monthly fell from 54% to 50%. Monthly church attendance is much more prevalent among those born before 1946 (67%) than among adults born in the 1980s (27%) or 1990-96 (28%). Between 2007 and 2014, the percentage of Catholics who said they attend church weekly fell from 41% to 39%, and the percentage who attend once or twice a month declined from 19% to 18%. However, the percentage of Catholics who say they read the Bible at least weekly rose from 21% to 25%.

  • Before those who were born in 1946, there were strong Christianity among the Catholics and other faiths who believed in God was strong. Now, I have seen some switch another faith and young people are less care about going to church. Parents tried when they were younger. I thank my Irish mother who really made the effort to drag her 7 children to church every Sunday. My father was left at home because he was not Catholic. Years later, he surprise my mother by converting into Catholic because he was felt left out while all of us went to church. All of my 6 siblings except the 2 brothers are not practicing their faith. My three children are not practicing their Catholic faith, only they believe God in their heart. I pray and hope they can turn themselves around. Same for the others who had turn away from Catholic faith. Besides going to church and listen to God's words, read the Bible as much you can, 5 minutes is all you can spare and God knows that you are doing your best. Hope and pray all of you go back and learn about Jesus. It is not too late. God bless all of you.
