More U.S. Christians mix in 'Eastern,' New Age beliefs

I came across an interesting article describing the religious landscape today and why we as Christians need to know the times and be ready to act. Here are some of the more striking conclusions:
  • "Forty-seven percent to 59% of Americans have changed religions at least once, a Pew survey in April found. The top reasons for most: Their spiritual needs weren't being met, or they liked another faith more or changed religious or moral beliefs."
  • "The percentage of people who call themselves Christian has dropped more than 11% in a generation, and so many people declined any religious label that the "Nones," now 15% of the USA, are the third-largest "religious" group after Catholics and Baptists, according to the American Religious Identification Survey last March."
  • "Despite Americans' overwhelming allegiance to someone they call God (92%), in Pew's 2008 U.S. Religious Landscape Survey, 70% said "many religions can lead to eternal life," and 68% said "there's more than one true way to interpret the teachings of my religion."

The Apostle Paul reminds us that the Church is the "the pillar and foundation of the truth" (1 Tim. 3:15)...we must continue to equip and engage and be faithful in an increasingly pluralistic society.
