There are a myriad of historical, demographic, economic,
and technological factors contributing to our increasing polarization
on issues of race, family, religion, gender, human rights, the environment, taxes, and so on. There is no silver- bullet explanation, and we don’t intend to offer one here. Our goal in this book [Taking America Back for God: Christian Nationalism in the United States] is to thoroughly explore one factor that, as we will show, plays a large, unique, but often unrecognized (and at times, misrecognized) role in our nation’s current cultural and political conflicts. That factor is Christian nationalism.

BARNA: State of the Church 2020

According to the report, three-quarters (72%) of Protestant pastors identify the impact of “watered down gospel teachings” on Christianity in the U.S. as a major concern. That’s especially true for pastors in non-mainline denominations (78%). Mainline pastors (59%) are less concerned.

About two-thirds (66%) of pastors say a major concern for Christianity is “culture’s shift to a secular age,” followed by 63% who identified “poor discipleship models” as a major concern and 58% who named “addressing complex social issues with biblical integrity,” the survey says.
