Americans are turning away from organized religion in record numbers

Posted by doctore0 on March 4, 2015


OrganizedReligionWith fire-breathing religion figuring anew in global conflicts, and political discussions at home often dominated by the nuttery of the Christian right, you might get the sense that somebody’s god is ready to mug you around every street corner. But if you’re the type who doesn’t like to hang your hat on organized religion, here’s a bit of good news: in America, your numbers are growing.

There are more religiously unaffiliated people in the U.S. today than ever before. Starting in the 1980s, a variety of polls using different methodologies have come to the same conclusion: people who do not identify with religious labels are on the rise, perhaps even doubling in that time frame.

Some call them “nones”: agnostics, atheists, deists, secular humanists, general humanists, and people who just don’t care to identify with any religious group. It’s not exactly correct to call them nonbelievers, because some still have faith and spirituality in some sense or another. A 2012 Pew study noted that 30 percent of these people believe in “God or universal spirit” and around 20 percent even pray every day. But according to the latest research, Americans checking the “none of the above” box will make up an increasingly important force in the country. Other groups, like born-again evangelicals, have grown more percentage-wise, but the nones have them beat in absolute numbers.

WLC God Hears Your Super Bowl Prayers

Posted by doctore0 on January 30, 2015


NFL fans know it’s nearly impossible to get through a football game without reference to God. Whether Tebowing on the sidelines, giving a shoutout on ESPN, or pointing to heaven after a touchdown, plenty of players recognize that God’s a part of the game.

Christians need to stop acting like that’s a bad thing, according to apologist and theologian William Lane Craig. He’s the one they should be praying to and thanking, says Craig, a professor at Biola University’s Talbot School of Theology and author of Reasonable Faith.

CT’s Kate Shellnutt spoke with Craig about prayer, providence, and pigskin ahead of Sunday’s big game. (Craig, for the record, will be pulling for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.)

Recent polls have found at least a quarter of Americans pray for sports teams, and that number is even higher among evangelicals. As a theologian, what do these stats tell you?
