Right here Are the Most ‘Post-Christian’ Cities in America

The analysis group Barna has simply launched their listing of probably the most “post-Christian” cities in America, and one area dominates the highest 10. Actually, the highest eight cities on the listing are all within the northeast/New England portion of the US.

The Springfield-Holyoke space of Massachusetts; the Portland-Auburn area of Maine; Windfall, Rhode Island; Burlington, Vermont and Boston make up the highest 5.

Santa Barbara-Santa Maria-San Luis Obispo in California and Washington’s Seattle-Tacoma had been the one non-northeast cities within the prime 10.

With a view to decide how “post-Christian” a metropolis is, Barna used their “FaithView” software to find out some key metrics like whether or not folks within the metropolis had learn the Bible within the final week (87% of individuals in Springfield-Holyoke had not), attended church within the final week (65% of Springfield-Holyoke had not), ever made a dedication to Jesus (that’s a no for 60% of Springfield-Holyoke residents), prayed to God within the final week (a no from 47% of individuals in Springfield-Holyoke) and disagreed that religion is vital of their lives (41% of Springfield-Holyoke residents).

Apparently, when requested in the event that they “do not believe in God,” the highest metropolis on the listing (you guessed it, Springfield-Holyoke) solely had 11 % of these requested affirm they had been atheist.
