The Great Deception In The American Church

Consider these statistics of Christianity: 84% of Americans say they believe in Jesus Christ and 45% claim to be born again Christians. Another study shows that number is closer to 33%. Either way these numbers are high. 77% believe their chances of going to heaven are excellent. 33% believe one day everyone will go to heaven. Yet America has the highest percentage of single-parent families in the industrialized world, highest abortion rate, highest rate of STDs, highest (by far) rate of teenage birth, highest rate of teenage drug use and largest prison population per capita than any other country in the world.


Consider the great moral decline in the last generation (50-60 years) and these statistics in America:

Divorce rate – doubled

Teen suicide – tripled

Reported violent crime – quadrupled

Prison population – quintupled

Percent of babies born out of wedlock  – risen sixfold

Couples living together out of wedlock – risen sevenfold

Gay marriage is legalized in many states and the end is not in sight


The results of a survey among young American adults showed that the percentage who follow Biblically based values for living has now dropped from 65% to a mere 4% since World War II.
