    Things aren't as bad in American Christianity as many say it is, according to one sociologist.

    Christianity isn't on the brink of extinction, divorce rates of Christians aren't equal to that of non-Christians and churches are not losing young people – at least not to the extent that some fear.

    That isn't to say there aren't any problems in the church. But Bradley R. E. Wright wants all the facts to be laid out before any judgment calls are made.

    In his newly released book Christians Are Hate-Filled Hypocrites ... and Other Lies You've Been Told, Wright reveals that many of the commonly cited statistics regarding the state of U.S. Christianity or the behaviors of Christians are incomplete and inaccurate.

    Most encouraging to see some 'authority' come forward that has the credentials to assert it.

    I do believe, however, what we have seen though current events and the exposure of others who have had data recognized..... whether factual or not.... We can't rest. We can't give up. We've got to keep going... spreading the gospel; spreading what's true.

    Great post and good encouraging news!

    This is good information. It does still show the church is to blame on the poor state of affairs within Christianity.
