n our time, millions of Americans have shed many traditional values, including religious faith.
FoxNews.com reports, “The importance of traditional American values has plummeted in the U.S. in recent decades, according to a new poll from The Wall Street Journal. … The poll found that just 39% of Americans say their religious faith is very important to them.”
In contrast to 39% of Americans today saying that religious faith is important to them, in 1998, the WSJ noted that that percentage was 62%.
Along with this drop in professed religious faith is a drop in the belief that there is such a thing as absolute truth.
But the founders of America affirmed that there is. In the Declaration of Independence, they declared, “We hold these truths to be self-evident. …” “Self-evident truth? Well, maybe that was their truth,” someone today might opine, “but my truth is different.”
At this time of year, hundreds of millions of professing Christians the world over celebrate Palm Sunday, which initiates Holy Week – including Good Friday, and above all, Easter, the day Jesus walked out of His own tomb and changed history forever.
