Is Christianity kind of... over?
By - Xynth22
As someone that lives in the South, no it most certainly isn't.
Fuckin' A Dude, it's in my damn face everyplace I go. Churches, billboards, the cashier saying "Have a Bessed Day!" with that happy-clappy moron face they all make.
One part of the family is religious, and they just have to say this complicated blessing before we eat. Goes on and fucking on and fucking on, bless this and that and keep us safe and in your name and blah de fucking blah blah. One day I'll lead a prayer to Azathoth the Blind Idiot Elder God of Chaos. See how they like that.
There's almost 2.4 billion followers of Christianity. They are the largest religion.
It’s just not the main focus of western society anymore.
My Christian family members feel they are being persecuted BECAUSE of their faith. I think your opinion is probably more on track with why they feel that way. They just aren’t surrounded by people with similar beliefs anymore. Scary for them, but the harsh reality of progress.
I think it’s dwindling but it has had periods of low-ish power before and rebounded from it.
I’ve also heard, sadly, that while its numbers are going down in “the West” people are converting to Christianity like crazy in Africa and South America.
Dont worry its not over. It has passed on second plan but its still pretty strong
It's definitely not invisible. People have just realized that people don't respond well to having ideologies that they don't believe in crammed down their throats every ten seconds. It's why nobody listens to JW when they come knocking lol. There's a time and a place to share your religious beliefs.
God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it?
I wouldn’t mind if it did
Nah. Still around still very vocal but I think it’s dying. Lots of people leaving the church and eventually I think it’ll go away but not yet
I hope so. And all the rest of the myths with them.
It's not as prevalent in mainstream media because our society is so capitalistic.
Televangelism is the epitome of capitalism.
People have been saying the exact same thing at various points for the past 2000 years.
Christianity has died many times and risen again; for it had a God who knew the way out of the grave.
