Our mainline Protestant churches are going the way of the dinosaurs. What has happened in the mainline Protestant Church that has made it be smaller and weaker in its influence.
We have many reasons that have caused the decline in membership. We have allowed the church to be invaded by socialism, humanism, universalism, communism, and politically-correct ideas.
There is but one remedy to the massive decline in the church's influence and authority to shape society: a return to God's word as found in the scriptures.
