Recently, someone I respect made a list of reasons why he believes there is no spiritual awakening on the horizon for America. Here are a few of the reasons he gave:
He listed others, but these are the main ones that jumped out at me.
Now I am not jumping on the bandwagon and saying that there will be no spiritual awakening in America in the foreseeable future. You just never know how God is going to work. However, my friend definitely does have a point. The beliefs that make up the foundation for contemporary American society are virtually all trending in the wrong direction. There is an increase in non-biblical beliefs being advocated by self-identified (many of them very prominent) Christians. There is an increase in immoral behavior among Christian leadership, as well as rank and file self-identified Christians. There is a massive lack of knowledge among self-identified Christians about what the Bible teaches. Church participation is declining at a massive rate.
And that is just in the church. In society at large, we see a massive increase in the percentage of Americans that actively claim they don’t believe in God. We increasingly see immoral behavior normalized in every part of society. We see Christian values being attacked as evil. We see churches and Christians being singled out for punishment by politicians, educational institutions, and businesses because of their Christian values. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. The way it is trending, it is going to get considerably worse before it gets better.
There is only one way for Christians to deal with this, and that is for God to do a massive work in the hearts of the masses in society. Now I firmly believe that God could just start moving that way, and simply generate a massive revival if he believed that was the best way to accomplish His big picture purpose. But I have a sneaking suspicion that it is not going to work that way – at least not right now. I think my friend may be on to something – that no spiritual awakening is on the horizon ...
Frankly, I don’t know how it will turn out. I really don’t know whether or not enough Christians are willing to put out the effort it will take to turn things around. But if not, we might as well fully expect that it is going to get increasingly worse.
If we are going to get serious, here is what we must do:
