Christian Trends 2019

Christianity is the largest religion in the world and has over 2.1 billion followers. Additionally, Christianity has been around for over 2,000 years and and isn't going anywhere soon.

However, Christianity is always changing. In this article, we're going to look at Christian trends in 2019 that you should know about.

Trends in Christianity

1. Belief in God

I think that the number one trend in Christianity for 2019 is a decline in belief in God. A lot more people are starting to lose their faith in God and no longer claim to be believers of Christ. This is a Christian trend in 2019 that is clearly on the rise and is increasing year by year.

People will choose to believe or not believe in God for different reasons. Sometimes it's because they look at the world and see all the evil and all the bad things that are happening and they wonder why won't God do anything about it.

So, this can lead them down a path of unbelief. And they all wonder how can a loving God allow all these things to happen in the world, especially when you look at all the people in the world that are starving and have no food to eat and nowhere to live.

Let's face it, there is a lot of violence and evil in this world. A lot of people are raped, killed, murdered, robbed, and taken advantage of in this world. Also, many are hungry and homeless. We also can't forget that a lot of people are suffering from incurable diseases such as HIV, aids, cancer, and many more diseases and illnesses.

Also, a lot of Christians will read the Bible for themselves in its entirety and they will find scriptures where God is killing people or even putting diseases and illnesses on people. A lot of them will also say that there is rape and slavery and all kinds of evil things in the Bible.

So, they will look at the Old Testament God Yahweh and say that he is evil. This is usually the argument that atheists use when trying to say that God does not exist and is just a myth.

I think that the biggest problem with Christianity and people in general is that they don't take responsibility for their own actions, instead, they want to blame God and the devil, but won't blame themselves for your own actions.

Last time I checked, I don't see God or any devil out there in the world killing and raping people and doing all kinds of evil things. In fact, the only people I see doing these things are us, not God or the devil. It's just us, so we have to take responsibility for our own actions.

So, a lot of people will walk away from God because of what they see in the world, but they fail to realize that we as the human race are the one's that's responsible for all the evil things that happen in the word.

Christian Trends

2. Decline in Church Attendance

Another Christian trend in 2019 that you should look out for is a decline in church attendance. I think that a lot of Christians will stop going to church for various different reasons. Some people are lukewarm and only go to church when they feel like it.

In fact, some people only go to church when it is their birthday or even a special event such as Christmas Sunday or Resurrection Sunday. These are the only times they will go to church. So, some people only go to church once or twice per year.

Another reason why church attendance in 2019 will decline is because people can watch their favorite preacher or televangelists from the comfort of their own home or even on the Internet.

So, some people find it to be a lot more convenient to simply watch church service from their homes instead of actually getting up early, driving, and spending their time, gas and money to get to the church, when they can simply watch it from their house.

Corrupt Pastors

Another trend in Christianity for 2019 that you should be on the lookout for is the increase of corrupt pastors. There are a lot more pastors out there who are up to no good and are simply scamming people out of their money or they're not living the life they claim to be living and are not the example that they should be to the body of Christ.

I understand that no one is perfect, even Pastor's. However, if you know that you are not living right and are doing the complete opposite of what you're telling your congregation, then you should definitely step down from the position and should no longer be teaching or leading the church.

So, this is one of the biggest problems in Christianity, we don't have great leaders who know what they're talking about or who are passionate about the word of God that they claim to believe in love so much.

Church is A Business

In 2019, churches are looking more like businesses instead of a place of worship where people can come together and get to know God and grow in their faith. These days, it seems like church is only about money. In fact, a lot of preachers only talk about money, and they only talk about the prosperity gospel and not the gospel that can actually save your soul.

Church shouldn't be about making money or should not have the mindset of a business, but sadly it does. In fact, you look at Pastor's like Creflo Dollar and many others, and all they talk about is money, and all they seem to want from you is more money.

These are the same people that have a lot of expensive cars, private jets, and mansions, yet, the people in their congregation are struggling to pay their bills and are living from paycheck to paycheck.

Paying Tithes

There is an increase in the amount of churches that are demanding that their members pay tithes. If people actually read the Bible for what it says, they would realize that they don't have to pay tithes. Instead, churches guilt trip their members and make them feel like they have to.

People should give money to the church because they want to. God loves a cheerful giver, but imagine giving money when you don't want to, it shouldn't be that way.

Churches need to do away with tithes altogether and should be honest with church members. Simply tell church members that the church needs money to keep the lights on, but don't tell them that they are cursed and God won't bless them if they don't pay their tithes.

I see this behavior in every church that I've ever been. Pastors tell people that they are cursed and to give money to God. Sadly, God isn't actually getting their money, the pastor/church is, which is why I said that churches should just be honest and tell the congregation why they are asking for money.

Most people can't afford to give 10% of their gross earnings, especially when factoring taxes and other deductions; people just can't afford it. So, people should just give what they are able to give.

Shorter Church Services

Sometimes church can be way too long. People can only sit for so long before they feel like going home. Certain churches like Pentecostal and Apostolic tend to have very long church services that are drawn out and go on forever.

After a certain amount of time people will start to lose interest and will stop paying attention. So, this is something that people should keep in mind. So, shorter church services is a Christian trend that you can expect to see in 2019.

Better Way To Give Money

I feel like a lot of churches are living in the past. I can't figure why people are still passing around collection plates to collect tithes and offerings. After all, we're in 2019. We have iPhones, Cash app, Venmo, PayPal, credit cards and so on. So, it's time for churches to start changing the way that they collect money.

More Youth Services

The youth plays an important role in church services. So, churches should definitely have more events and services for the youth. This is how churches are going to grow and have a better youth department.

Watered Down Gospel

The gospel isn't being preached like it should. Instead, all we have is a gospel that has been watered down. Preachers aren't preaching what people need to here, but only what they want to hear.

People don't wanna hear about how to live right, get closer to God, and to do what God wants them to do. Instead, they want to hear about how God can bless them with more money, cars, better job, a house and material things. This what people want to hear. It's also what why these mega churches are packed.

In today's society, people don't fear God like they use to or as they should. A lot of televangelists won't preach the truth because they don't want to lose money or offend people.

Also, you can't say certain things on TV. So, that's another problem; they water down the gospel so that they can stay on tv and not cause any controversy; this a trend in 2019 that is definitely on the rise.

Final Thoughts

As you can see, there are a lot of trends in Christianity in 2019. The church is always changing and evolving year by year and 2019 will be no different.
