Crazy quilt faith – JAM

More and more Americans are treating their faith as if it were chosen from a spiritual buffet. With the increased influence from emigrants and their Eastern cultures and religions, as well as the New Age Movement, both Catholics and Protestants, are mixing and matching various and often contradictory beliefs borrowed from diverse sources. Pollster Alan Cooperman describes it as “grazing” and “sampling”. For instance it is not difficult to find Christians who believe in reincarnation, Yoga, or astrology. The increase of this crazy quilt of beliefs is matched by a decrease in respect for the Bible as the Word of God. In fact, mark it down: the more the Bible declines as spiritual authority, the more this trend will increase. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
