Note from Pastor Kevin Lea:  This is why revival is not in our future.  The trend of the American culture is to become more like Sodom and Gomorrah, with no desire among the people to gain knowledge about the God who sent Jesus to save them from sin.  Even if they did want to attend “church”, very few services are devoted to teaching the Word of God or to present the Gospel of Jesus.  "Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come [has come] when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables" 2 Timothy 4:2-4 (NKJV).

Americans have grown less religious over the past couple of decades, and attendance at religious services is down across the country. Of course, some parts of the country are a lot less religious than others. New survey data shows Seattle is one of those places.

A clear majority of adults in the Seattle area — around 64% — never attend church or religious services, or go less than once a year. That pencils out to about 1.98 million people out of the total 3.1 million population aged 18 and older in our metro area, which includes King, Pierce and Snohomish counties.
