LIFE@Lynchburg: Is the Decline of Christianity in America a Good Thing, Bad Thing, Neither, or Both?

March 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Presented by Jan G. Linn ’03 HAA.

Most Americans take for granted the assumption that Christianity, the most dominant religious tradition in America since the founding of the nation, plays a positive role in our national life. Is that true, or does a closer examination of the influence of Christianity raise serious questions about the kind of impact it has had and is now having? Further, given the statistics that suggest Christianity itself is in decline in terms of people identifying themselves as Christian, is it possible that such a decline is good for the nation and Christianity itself or an ominous sign of things to come for both? This presentation and discussion will seek to explore answers to these questions that reflect a commitment to being honest with ourselves and honest to God.
