    reading so many of these links today with a commonality forming in my brain (spirit?)…
    Yes, there is some growing enlightenment, some partial enlightenments, but mostly what i see is a growing accumulation of decay…
    i think that we’ve got a wobbling faith now… we don’t trust our foundation? “Science is right. Humanism is right. Those thinkers are smarter than we are … gee, we’d better check our translations.”
    say what? wasn’t that Eve’s problem way back there? “has God really said…?” Yes, He has. Case closed. Trust Him and stand. IMHO
    gimme that old time religion? mehbeeso – dunno

    The link about highly religious Americans….

    I am always suspicious of polls that try to measure happiness. “On a scale from one to five, how happy are you?” Scandinavians always come out as the most deliriously happy people on earth but I know some Scandinavians and they are a pretty morose bunch. I think they feel obligated to say they are happy, that they would seem ungrateful if they admitted things weren’t perfect in their socialist paradise. I think the same could be true for religious folk. We pretty much have to say we are happy or else our religion will sound ineffectual. We must be happy happy happy all the time to defend God’s reputation and to prove to outsiders that we are on the right track.

    But some of us really are happy. 🙂

    On the church attendance link:

    I was actually thinking about this earlier today, even before the article, but it has been three weeks since we have been able to pull together our midweek study, and for all of us it is a legit highlight to the week. We’ve all managed to get pretty sick recently (just got over a nasty stomach bug right on the heels of the flu myself) among a bunch of other things. Over the past 14 months (my daughter of now 14 months old) I would probably put my attendance at about 60 percent. This is one of my favorite things in the world, and I can only manage to get there a little over half the time.

    Stuff comes up, keep your shame to yourself.

    The Bernie Sanders article is built on a wrong understanding of what Sanders is preposing.
