Mainline Denominations Tanking

The National Council of Churches has come out with their 2008 yearbook reporting on the condition of mainline denominations. It’s not good. Not good at all.

Both the Episcopal and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) are declining big time. Both denominations are battling over homosexuality and biblical interpretation. Imagine that, people leave denominations that undermine Scripture, huh, who knew?

Most other denominations reported minimal growth. Then there’s Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons, both growing more than any other denomination. Nice.

Conclusion: If you’re not going to listen to the Bible anyway, might as well write your own, then the people will flock in.

On the upside, I guess, people who are still going to church are giving more money. Hmm, silver-lining or just more cloudiness?
