I attend church regularly, but I am certainly no fan of the Southern Baptists. They make the Puritans look positively GLEEFUL.

The most frighteningly horrifying thing for a Southern Baptist is for a Southern Baptist to have the nagging suspicion that someone, somewhere, MIGHT be enjoying life.....(and a beer.:))

We'll adapt.
If a Christian Church can thrive in a place like Corinth - the most morally depraved place in the Greco-Roman world - we can do it in a declining America.
You just keep calling sin sin (like homosexuality) and you keep calling people to repent and turn to Jesus Christ.
You do the same thing in the minority that you did when you were in the majority. And when the society collapses ans crumbles (which it will) you don't change a thing then either. When you are right, nothing changes with you even though everything around you is changing.

Now repent and turn to Jesus Christ, or spend an eternity in torment.

If you think the Jersey Turnpike is hades you ain't seen nothing yet.

Now, throw your moral depravity and sin burden at the foot of the cross, and ask Jesus to save you.
