Season: 13 Episode: 186
More people identify as “nones” today than any other time in history. That means they do not have any affiliation with any religion. Christianity has been on a steep decline for the last several decades, yet there has been an incline in the mental health crisis, mass shootings, and societal decay overall. Is there a correlation between the decline of Christianity and our current cultural situation? Lori Morrow is on the show to discuss her research on this issue and why those outside of Christianity blame Christians for the world’s problems. Her findings will open your eyes to the REAL problem in this cultural moment, and why Christianity is the ONLY solution to what we’re facing today.

Lori is on a mission to persuade everyday christian women to challenge popular but problematic secular ideas with the truth of the Christian worldview, because learning to love God with our minds allows us to love Him more.
Tell us a little more about yourself and what you do.
Before we get into today’s episode, we need to define a few terms and one of them is secularism. Can you do that for us?
You’ve been looking at trends of secularism over the last few years and the role it has in mental health and school shootings. What have you found?
If the problem is never identified then we cannot find the proper solution. Although secularism identifies some of these behaviors as wrong, why are they misdiagnosing the problem and what repercussions does that have both now and in the long term?
The increase in “Nones” and decrease in Christianity happened around the same time. Why do you think that is and what are the societal results?
With the decrease of Christianity, we see a rise in self-destruction (mass shootings, kids cutting themselves and self-harm, etc). Why does the culture believe Christianity is the problem when we can clearly see through the data that there is a correlation among the decline in Christianity and increase in societal destruction?
