(Worthy News) - The number of religious “nones” in the United States are now statistically equal than the number of evangelicals, according to a political scientist who analyzed data from the recently released 2018 General Social Survey.

The GSS, a biennial project run by NORC (National Opinion Research Center) at the University of Chicago, was released this week and showed how America’s religious landscape continues to change.

Ryan Burge, a political science researcher at Eastern Illinois University, analyzed data from the survey. He used a Reltrad (religious tradition) classification code to compensate for the oversample of African Americans in earlier waves of data. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]

  1. The narrow road to The Kingdom Of God narrows further, just as Christ explained it would, as the love of many waxes cold (Matt. 24) and as also described in (2 Timothy 3).
    God knows the end from the beginning and society follows the script to the most minute detail.
