    Sadly most Christians in the free world are like as described in this article.
    1 Timothy 6:17 King James Bible
    Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;

    Most Christians now a days are LUKEWARM and go to dead dry church that does not have the Holy Spirit there at all and its like Rev 2, all these churches seems to be are corrupt and lukewarm churches lovers of money, that are teaching false doctrines and the pastors tell their people that they are saved, when they really are NOT but just have a FALSE CONVERSION and dont CHANGE at all, but think that they are going to heaven. all the while still doing what they used to do in this world. That is WHY the bible says that ONLY FEW will enter heaven, and Hebrews 12:14 says ” Without HOLINESS you will NOT see Jesus”

  • Ah, Europe is evolving from the dark ages of unfettered religious authority and mass, doctrinal inculcation into an Age of Reason far more than the U.S., which, with the help of our mildly, but increasingly fundamentalist SCOTUS, seems to be devolving backward toward Christian authoritarianism and possibly a new dark age of theocratic rule. All that is holding it back is the 1st Amendment and a great number of women and men of Reason.

    BTW, two of our most valued freedoms is the right not to be cohered into making pledges and the right to free speech (freedom of conscience), both of which Donald (Elmer Gantry/Tony Alamo) Trump spit on by demanding that the NFL coerce their players to stand for the National Anthem and the U.S. Flag. And millions of fundamentalists cheered him. Shameful!

    Take the poll in Eastern Europe, especially Poland, Austria, and Hungary. The faith is strong in those places.

    Mark 1:15 ” And saying, The time is fulfilled,and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.” Repent or burn, the choice is simple. John 3:7 “Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” Praise the Lord Jesus Christ.
