The American Church Has Fallen: Shocking Poll Shows 'Fake Christianity' Has Supplanted the Biblical Worldview
July 4, 2021 at 8:41am
American Christianity has fallen. Thanks to cultural corrosion and a lack of biblical literacy, a new “fake Christianity” has raked the dry ground of the American church.
This counterfeit religion is moralistic therapeutic deism, a worldview that has quickly gained prominence and given many Americans a theology that looks nothing like historical Christianity, despite what they may claim.
George Barna, director of research at Arizona Christian University, said MTD — or “watered-down, feel-good, fake Christianity” — is “the most popular worldview in the United States today,” according to Christianity Daily. A recent poll conducted by ACU found that 38 percent of adults hold this view.
What’s more, three out of four people who hold to MTD still consider themselves Christians.
The poll was conducted in February among 2,000 adults with a margin of error of +/- 2 percentage points.

“The fact that a greater percentage of people who call themselves Christian draw from [MTD] than from the Bible says a lot about the state of the Christian church in America, in all of its manifestations,” Barna said.
“Simply and objectively stated, Christianity in this nation is rotting from the inside out.”
