American Youths: Faithless
United States President Donald Trump is relying on Christians to elect him to a second term in office. According to a Pew Research Center survey of 4,708 U.S. adults conducted from June 16 to 22, about 55 percent of Christians intend to vote for President Trump in the upcoming election. About 72 percent of the religiously unaffiliated intend to vote for Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden.
This support from Christians would have guaranteed an electoral victory in days gone by. But today, the 2020 U.S. presidential election may be close due to the fact that America’s youth are losing faith in God and the Bible.
A Pew Research Religious Landscape survey of more than 35,000 Americans found that 69 percent of those born between 1951 and 1965 (baby boomers) definitely believe in God. Only 51 percent of those born between 1986 and 1997 (millennials) are certain God exists. America is about one generation away from becoming an agnostic nation.
The same survey found that many who believe in God do not believe the Bible. About 64 percent of baby boomers believe God inspired the Bible, but only 35 percent believe it is the literal Word of God. Among their grandchildren’s generation, only 51 percent think the Bible was inspired, and only 20 percent think it is the literal Word of God.
Those who lack faith in God and the Bible are more likely to put their faith in progressive politicians. Among baby boomers, 44 percent lean conservative, compared to only 33 percent of millennials. There is a strong correlation between those who believe in the Bible and those who support conservative policies.
If trends continue, those born after 1997 may become America’s first post-Christian generation.
Americans do not believe and obey God as they once strove to do, and they have failed to teach their children about God. This is not just a religious curiosity: This is the root cause behind the nation-threatening crises America now faces.

Police Defunded, Criminals Empowered
Since June, when radicals demanded that cities defund their police departments, shootings and homicides have increased dramatically. In America’s worst affected city, New York City, shootings have increased 46 percent and homicides 21 percent compared to the same time last year.
L.A. faces America’s second-highest crime surge. In the first week of June, with the beginning of riots, Los Angeles experienced a 250 percent surge in homicides compared to 2019. Shootings increased by 56 percent, while the city cut funding to its police department by $150 million.
Baltimore, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., and other cities have also seen drastic increases in violent crime.
One in Three Americans: Civil War Is Coming
About 34 percent of Americans believe that the nation is likely to experience another civil war within the next five years, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll of 1,000 likely voters. Breaking these numbers down by political affiliation, Rasmussen found that 40 percent of Republicans thought civil war was “on the horizon,” along with 28 percent of Democrats. When asked about the protests over Confederate monuments, 39 percent of respondents thought the removal of Confederate symbols, names and monuments would help race relations in America, while 27 percent thought these actions would hurt race relations.
The Trumpet has warned for years that lawlessness and racial tension in American cities will escalate into civil war, based on scriptures like Isaiah 1:7: “Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.” This scripture refers to race riots and urban warfare consuming American cities.

Prince Harry Attacks Britain’s ‘Racist’ Institutions
Prince Harry has signed up to the radical Black Lives Matter agenda, supporting the movement in a series of video messages.
In a July 1 video, on what would have been the 59th birthday of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, he indicated that he believed Britain was a racist society.
Then on July 7 he joined people like Alicia Wallace—a “queer black feminist woman” and “anti-capitalism advocate,” as she describes herself—to lament the racism inherent in the Commonwealth.
This is not the British Empire he’s talking about; this is the Commonwealth—a free association of democratic nations that anyone can leave at any time. The secretary general is a black woman.
The monarchy was once a force for unity in Britain, an institution that people could rally behind despite their political differences. Now the royal family has become a force for division.
