“But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons” (1 Timothy 4:1).
With the rise of secularism, it’s no surprise that the fastest growing demographic of religious affiliation is “none.” This decrease in religious identity, however, should not be interpreted as a disinterest in spirituality. What’s being rejected are the historical creeds of the church, orthodox faith confessions, along with any claims of absolute Truth. Instead, influencers, content creators, and consumers have created a “spiritual experience” based upon their own intuitive desires and subjective emotional needs. While a religious preference of “none” may be reported to polling agencies, a more accurate response is “Me.” It’s a religious expression as old as man himself.
