Remarkable: US vs Northwest Europe church attendance
I always wondered how there could be such a huge difference in this, considering our cultures are most closely related and the common Judeo-Christian background we share. 2012 surveys show in the US 43% of the people attend church on a weekly basis while overhere that number has been around 5% (on average) for years now.

Anyone have an explanation for this?

When you all think our sexuality is tame... that explains a lot of the anything goes with sex on the other side of the pond. No good values to grow a family... lets just bang anything and anyone, with the younger the better.

5%, I thought that was a bit high.

Europe went though Enlightenment revolutions, along with experiencing centuries of the church doing whatever it wanted to get more money before the reformation.

By contrast, America was founded in part by religious pilgrims.

It's not really strange at all.

I would say it's more likely that Europeans don't have the whole God delusion drummed in to our heads on a daily basis, and even those that do are allowed to think for themselves and question it without risk of being labelled an oddity.

I think most of us have had our fill of what religion offers and want no more of it, I'm hoping that the majority of us have evolved beyond the point of requiring imaginary friends :D

The reason is very simple: those Europeans who were especially particular about their religious beliefs moved to the USA to be free to indulge in their favorite flavor of religious fervor.

Re: Remarkable: US vs Northwest Europe church attendance
Disgraceful.
After 911 America flooded into the churches.
Every pew was filled.
Then slowly attendance dropped off.

America is still a Christian nation, at least
the overwhelming majority profess to be Christians,
but it seems we need tribulation to drive us to
our knees in prayer.

If that is what it takes, that is what God will give us.

Turning back to God is more important than ANYTHING else
in this life.

I pray we turn back to Jesus Christ and away from
socialism and materialism, before it is too late.

If God takes His hand of protection off of America
we are done for.

The dutch numbers are not accurate. And I reckon it's true for most western European countries...

[link to www.cbs.nl]

Basically 42% have no religion in the Netherlands, and of the 3 largest religious groups (protestants, catholics and muslims) more then 50% of their followers attend their church/mosque less then once a month (so less then ~15% of the Dutch population attends religious services more then once a month).

God moves people among the nations. In all the history of the world, the U.S., Canada and Australia were "founded" last. People left England and western Europe and migrated to new homes.

Most of the population left in the years prior to WWI in Europe...they got out.

I saw a good documentary regarding Australia, and no one can explain how it was never colonized by any country prior to England, yet there is evidence to support multiple cultures having visited (but never stayed) before England.

To me, God moved most of His children to these places. He even says that they will be "sent in ships"...back to captivity. In the end, I'd say we'll face most of the judgments...
