Polester trending findings from religious poling.

The poles indicate there that organized religion is on the decline, not just in Western Europe, but also in the United States.

Only 37 percent of Americans believe clergy contribute significantly to society’s well-being, according to a new Pew Research Center poll. Even among regular church goers, only about half, 52 percent, say clergy contribute “a lot” to the betterment of society.

Gallup and Pew polls provide these other indicators:

• Two-thirds of Americans say religion is losing its influence in our lives.
• Since the 1970s, Americans’ confidence in organized religion has steadily decreased.
• As of 2012, the downward trend hit an all-time low: only 44 percent of Americans have “a great deal” of confidence in organized religion.

To the majority of believers caught up in religion these are alarming statics. But take heart...Religion is NOT the Church Jesus said He would build. Religion is man-ordained. But the Church of Jesus Chrtst is God-Ordained. Religions are institutional organizations. The Church of Jesus Christ is a Living Organism.

Jesus does have His Church and she will prevail against all assaults from the world system and from the religious system.
