All this is a result of only 37% of Pastors in America having a Biblical Worldview! We are seeing America fall as a Christian nation right before our eyes. I hate to think what America will look like in another 6 months!
From Christianity Today:
Pew Research Center isn’t ruling out a future religious revival in America.
But given the country’s steady trends away from faith affiliation, experts don’t know what it would look like.
Analyzing surveys about religious identity and religious “switching” going back to 1972 and trying to project the American religious landscape out to the year 2070, they can’t even say what demographic signs might indicate a coming swell of conversions.
“We’ve never seen it, and we don’t have the data to model a religious reversal,” Pew senior researcher Stephanie Kramer told CT.
Mainline Pastors Drive Growth in Pastoral Support for Same-Sex Marriage
Marriage was designed by God and is defines by God, not man.
Marriage is at the center of God’s purpose for mankind.
God joined a man and women together so that together they would mirror His image.
He called this union marriage. Their oneness reflects the character and unity of God. Matthew 19: 4-6, John 17: 22-23
Their oneness is a living picture of this intimate relationship with JESUS and His followers. Eph 5:22-33.
From Lifeway Research:
By Aaron Earls
Approval for same-sex relationships has grown among Protestant pastors, but a majority still disapprove.
A new survey from Nashville-based Lifeway Research asked Protestant pastors their thoughts on same-gender marriages and civil unions.
In the most recent survey, 24% of pastors say they see nothing wrong with two people of the same gender getting married. Almost three-quarters say they disagree (72%), with 67% strongly disagreeing.
