The pandemic has sped up change in our culture, including the lessening of the church’s influence. While America was steadily moving from its Judeo-Christian roots before the shutdown (with church attendance dropping and the number of people willing to admit they had no faith rapidly increasing to almost one-in-four) the pandemic has accelerated the shift to where we are now a post-Christian culture. There is no longer the cultural pressure to know and acknowledge the basic tenants of the faith. With a powerful push to limit or eliminate basic constitutional religious freedoms.
Rev. Jeff Wolheter has spent his career planting churches, and that means having a rich understanding of the culture. As he shares in this short video clip, the shift means more antagonism towards the church, but also an opportunity.
