One of the Muslims I worked with was asking me about the USA and religiosity last Friday. I asserted that the USA was about 80% Christian. The Creationist who was standing near by told me that my statistics were outdated. I checked it out and WOW! What a nice surprise! I have been in Korea since 1997, Apparently America was once 85% Christian around 1990. It dropped to 81% in 2001. In 2012 it dropped to 78%. In 2015 it continued to drop and managed to come in at 75%. As of 2019 65% of polled American adults identified themselves as Christian.
Based on telephone surveys conducted in 2018 and 2019, Pew said Thursday that 65% of American adults now describe themselves as Christian, down from 77% in 2009.Oct 17, 2019
Okay, statistics may vary depending on the site you visit but the trend is obvious. In a few more years, we will all be unnecessary in the USA.
BUT TAKE HEART!
In 1900, in Korea, only 1% of the country's population was Christian. Catholics have grown as a share of the population, from 5% in 1985 to 11% as of 2005. The current Christian population is around 29%.
SO WHAT'S THE GOOD NEWS???
THERE IS PLENTY OF WORK FOR US TO DO!
