Yet you have not called on Me, O Jacob; But you have become weary of Me, O Israel. (Isaiah 43:22)
According to the Pew Research Center, the number of people who identify as Christians in the United States continues to decline at a rapid pace, while an increasing number claim no religious affiliation. Of course the truth is that those who claimed to have once been Christians and have since denied the faith, were never really Christians; They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us. (1 John 2:19)
According to a recent Gallup poll, U. S. Church membership and attendance has decreased sharply in the past two decades, especially among young people. It is predicted that approximately 60,000 so called Protestant churches will close within the next 18 months. In most of these cases, I'm glad that they are closing, being led by false teachers and filled with false converts. But there is also a significant decline in attendance of those churches we would consider biblical and doctrinally sound. Of course the Covid pandemic has contributed to the recent decreased physical church attendance. However, like Israel, many have strayed from the faith, become apathetic, conformed to this world and, sadly, are weary of worshiping God.
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near. (Hebrews 10:23-25)
