i feel the same way! just look at my profile pic! well anyways i wish i knew and it is very unfourtinate! there are so many reasons why especially withmy surroundings in vegas! yea hard to find signs of God here :( but just keep ur faith and help others find him :)
It hasn't. America has become more diverse and more advanced. 1/7 of humans are Christian, 1/7 are Muslim, and 1/7 are Hindi. These numbers are approximate. Also, religions formed to explain things that society wasn't advanced enough to understand, as our understanding increases, reliance on religion to explain the inexplicable decreases.
Because liberals want all god out of everything. This country was founded on a Ju-cristian society. I agree that we have freedom of religion and embrace it. But to have society delete religion is crazy
I'm sorry, but your implication is simply wrong. Most Americans are still some form of Christian. I think the real issue you're trying to press here is, "why is god-talk not appearing in every single corner of American life?" For me, this is not a bad thing.
I don't think it's that so many people have turned away from God at least in their hearts. So many non believers are coming out from the shadows that what they're saying and doing is standing out more so then what the believers say or do. I'm very thankful for one thing even though man can't see the hearts of people and the love they have for God. God can see our hearts and knows our love.
I don't accept the premises of your question. If anything, studies show that Americans are more religious now than they were 30 years ago. The US is the developed country with the highest fraction of people not believing in evolution, and accepting biblical literalism.
I can't speak for America but personally being raised religious and having gone to church every Sunday for years and years it was the people of faith that killed it for me. I find the church and it's followers to be self righteous hippocrates. They look down their nose at you and judge you. So for me if I'm going to be judged that way I may as well live how I want, believe what I want and care less what anyone thinks. I'm far happier since I left the church behind. Maybe just me but that's my opinion.
Like what colddeadfingers said its definately because of liberals and them changing society to make religion seem wrong and so many people have to be in the crowd of society. Honestly i dont know why you would want to be a cruel person like them.
My opinion, its not that most of America has turned away from God; its that with technology, social networks and such negative people have even more means of spreading their negativity. Unfortunatly there always have been and always will be, people who choose to be bad; its just a fact. I believe God is still with the majority of us and his words will prevail. : )

Well it all started when they took prayer out of schools which I think was crazy and they should never have done such a thing. Because they took prayer out of school kids realized that they didn't have to be Christian and started doing bad things. But I pray that they will put prayer back in school and that this nation will turn to Jesus, because it needs to and we should all just pray that it happens soon.

Whaa, Whaa, Whaa! "Oh no! I want to live in a country where I have the freedom to worship whatever deity I choose while denying others the same right. Is that so wrong?" This country is not turning away from God. Organized religion (read Christianity) is a multi-billion-dollar industry that pays no taxes. It didn't get there because people were turning away from it. Wait, what's that? Did I just hear a Cosmic "Duh!"? Oh, and for all of you griping about technology being to blame (while you USE technology to voice your complaints) I'd just like to point out that technology is the best friend God ever had. What better way to "spread the word"? People can download the Bible for FREE on many different mobile devices in EVERY TRANSLATION and with Google-worthy search options. What's the next bogus religioso gripe going to be? And one last thing: stop beating around the bush and say "YHWH". You couldn't care less if people turned away from Vishnu or Ganesh. You do know that Christianity doesn't own the trademark on the word "God", right? It doesn't even own the trademark on the God it worships. Praise be to the Flying Spaghetti Monster! May all the infidels boil for eternity while remaining al dente!
I feel the biggest problem is the minority of people who don't and didn't believe in God have been able to abuse our Constitution because today's Supreme Court Judges have lost the truth in the text that our forefathers put together. We are bending too much to the whines of the few who continue to take our freedoms away. They are the disciples of Satan.
People now say they have other things to do. I know someone who doesn't go to church though his family really needs to... Without God we are just as meaningless than the sand we were made from. It just sickens me to see all of the people who have "better" things to do than go to church. We are supposed to worship God not money. God not material things! God not ourself. We need God not another American "Idol"! Why can't people listen! I don't want to gain the whole world but lose my soul!
Because we associate capitalism as our primary worldview, which is antithetical to the social gospel of the Bible. We also have many Christians who interpret the social gospel as "give so that it may be given unto you" instead of realizing the Bible's Message of "harvest so that you may sow." Our faiths are too often private and intellectual rather than actually making a difference in our world. As such, most AmericanChristians have turned away from God to pursue their own ends, and as such, the light in America is very dim and discoloured.
In God We Trust Has Rust. Very Similar To Children Raised By Parents To Have Cer- tain Values; S e e m s The Older Kids Get, The Further They Go From Their Foundation; Having To Purposely UP-Hold & Keep Them. ----------------------- Scripture Quote If your children will keep My covenant and My testimony that I shall teach them, their children also shall sit upon your throne forever. (Psalm 132:12 AMP)
I don't know if people are turning away from god. They should be, because of the basic contradictions in the Christian religion (too many to write here, but the trinity is an obvious one).
Religion in this country is, by and large, obscene. Its all about show - showy churches, gold ornaments, expensively clad people, and at its roots is so hypercritical (gays in church, consecration of women) that it should make any reasonable person sick to the stomach.
What's not to turn away from?
Religion, in general, turned away from god a long, long time ago.....
