C.H. Spurgeon

Sinners, let me address you with words of life; Jesus wants nothing from you, nothing whatsoever, nothing done, nothing felt; he gives both work and feeling. Ragged, penniless, just as you are, lost, forsaken, desolate, with no good feelings, and no good hopes, still Jesus comes to you, and in these words of pity he addresses you, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out."

A Map of Faith, 2000

This map is apparently of data from 2000, I wonder about 2007.

I found the map above and individual group maps may be found at the website of American Ethnic Geography. Still not sure as to why there is no newer information posted since this copyright of 2002. They do note that "The U.S. Census Bureau, due to issues related to the separation of church and state, does not ask questions related to faith or religion on the decennial census. Accordingly, there are few sources of comprehensive data on church membership and religious affiliation for the United States. Perhaps the leading organization to address this gap is the Glenmary Research Center, which publishes Religious Congregations and Membership in the United States, 2000."

Compared to the 2004 Electoral Map

Check out PZ Myers take on this map. Lots of comments there. Over 400 at last count. The comments are very enlightening, as is Prof. Myers post.

A Map of Stupidity

We all know what religion does to people. Religion didn't create vaccines, send people to space, create artificial limbs and so on.

The more religious a state, the higher the crime rate, and the higher the ignorance.

PZ Myers is a far better writer than you, Tim.

Unlike you, he is a scientist, and is well qualified to write about science.

You stick to your theology bullshit instead.

hmmm... the comments usually left here are so intelligent? lol

BEAST said...

More intelligent than yours.

Writer, Splinters of Silver.com said...

Proved my point. :)

That comment gives nothing to the topic. It was just left because you have the inability to allow even one of posts to be without a comment from you.

John Bunyan

To be saved is to be preserved in the faith to the end. 'He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.' (Mt. 24:13) Not that perseverance is an accident in Christianity, or a thing performed by human industry; they that are saved 'are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation.' (1 Pet. 1: 3-6) But perseverance is absolutely necessary to the complete saving of the soul…. He that goeth to sea with a purpose to arrive at Spain, cannot arrive there if he be drowned by the way; wherefore perseverance is absolutely necessary to the saving of the soul.
