It has been suggested that we as a society have begun to decline in the way we look at religion and the beliefs that were once so strong. What was once a way of life to the majority of Americans has changed by leaps and bounds, in the opposite direction. Members of the local church may have chosen to abandon ship because everything has gone from the belief that there is something better, to a political landscape where our confidence has actually been shattered. Confusion is more prevalent than dedication, making followers question what is right and what is wrong.
Most churches have chosen to turn to the way of organized religion and the membership must simply follow, or find another church. Our public life when it comes to our beliefs must be kept under wraps, or we will certainly suffer the wrath of non believers. Belief in a supreme being is still a universal thing (mostly) but the more we talk about it, the less we are talked to. There are few institutions, (if any) that genuinely follow the word of God and they too must do so with the utmost caution.
I am always respective of the fact that our men and women in the military, for the most part, are strong believers. I have observed that there is a downturn of those believers over the last few years. The United states Congress claims to be good and ready to do what is right for this country, yet they continually support laws that are obviously against the beliefs of the silent majority. As a country, a select few have managed to make the most noise and the others (like myself) are pressured to shut our mouths about our belief. Is this fair? No it is not, but when the end game presents itself, all who choose to remain silent will have to continue doing so, because it will be too late.
