Americans No Longer One Nation Under God?

American students begin their day with a patriotic pledge vowing allegiance to “one nation, under God”, while U.S. presidents and politicians regularly end speeches with the words, “May God bless America”. Indeed, since our nation’s founding by pilgrims escaping religious persecution, and seeking the freedom to freely practice their religion, faith has played an integral role in American culture.

But this devotion could be waning, suggests new research from Duke University and University College London (UCL). The study, published in the American Journal of Sociology, finds there’s an ongoing decline in the number of Americans who claim religious affiliations, attend church on a regular basis, and believe in a higher being.

“We haven’t noticed it until recently, I think, because it’s been so slow,” said Mark Chaves of Duke University. “We just didn’t have enough data over a long enough period of time to be able to conclude that it was declining, but it’s now pretty clear that it is.”

What Chaves and co-author David Voas found is that each succeeding U.S. generation is less religious than the previous one.

Consequently, 94 percent of Americans born before 1935 claim a religious affiliation. However, just 71 percent of the generation born after 1975 claims the same. Older Americans, people 65 and older, are also more likely to have no doubt God exists while 45 percent of people between the ages of 18 and 30 hold the same belief. When it comes to attending religious services, 41 percent of the over-70 crowd go to church at least once a month, compared to just 18 percent of people 60 and younger. http://blogs.voanews.com/all-about-america/2016/03/21/americans-no-longer-one-nation-under-god/?from=lister

The USA is less and less respectful of the Bible as well.

For those willing to look and properly think, God’s existence is obvious:

20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools (Romans 1:20-22).

Yet many have intentionally overlooked what should be obvious.

This does not bode well for the USA.

The religious situations in the other Anglo-Saxon descended lands, such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the UK is probably even worse.  This does not bode well for those lands either.

Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel Are the Americans, Canadians, English, Scottish, Welsh, Australians, Anglo-Saxon (non-Dutch) Southern Africans, and New Zealanders descendants of Joseph? Where are the lost ten-tribes of Israel? Who are the lost tribes of Israel? What will happen to Jerusalem and the Jews in Israel? Will God punish the U.S.A., Canada, United Kingdom, and other Anglo-Saxon nations? Why might God allow them to be punished first? Here is a link to the Spanish version of this article: Anglo-América & las Tribus Perdidas de Israel. Information is also in the YouTube sermons titled Where are the Ten Lost Tribes? Why does it matter? and British are the Covenant People. A short YouTube of prophetic interest may be Barack Obama and the State of the Apocalypse.
Will the Anglo-Saxon Nations be Divided and Have People Taken as Slaves? Will the lands of the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand be divided? What about Jerusalem?

British are the Covenant People What do ‘British’ and ‘Britain’ mean in Hebrew? Are the descendants of the Anglo-Saxons people of the covenant?

Did the last King of England believe in British Israelism?
