Quick Question:

Recently, in my class on Revelation (NT666), the professor was talking about how because the church undermined the Roman empire, they were persecuted. He suggested that this is the model for the church, our values are different than that of the world around us, and the world should hate us.

The values of American culture are so counter to that of the church; yet there is not a complete rejection of the church. Do you think this means that the church is not being faithful? or perhaps the values of America aren't so anti-Christian?

What do you think?

I think there are a few people that are public figures who have said that religion should die. Bill Macher for example. There is also a large anti-religion movement online. The Amazing Athiest on youtube for example.

Aside from those groups I do think many people ignore the church because many churches dont point out peoples sin and Jesus death and resurection to defeat sin. When the church doent do that it becomes just another organization.

Also...
1. We don't live in a nation with official/approved religions and other religions/cults (Christianity) that are forbidden
2. At the time America is quite open to spirituality/religion (Europe would be a different story, where self-proclaimed atheists greatly outnumber self-proclaimed "believers").

That's my 2 cents.
