We are planting the wrong seeds in the hearts of our children with the message no God by day and violence everywhere on television at night.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (PRWEB) May 12, 2016
Although the United States is still the largest Christian nation in the world, the country has seen an ideological shift in religion. According to a Gallup religion poll, the percentage of adults who identify as Christian has dropped 5 percent since 2008.
This trend is concerning to Lesa K. Smith, a Christian who believes that America may be phasing out religion in society. In her new book, “Love Letters to America,” Smith focuses on various controversial issues, including the role of God in schools, violence on television and religious liberty.
Smith was adopted as a 1-year-old, which had a lasting impact in shaping her views on abortion. She previously volunteered with the Crisis Pregnancy Center of Knoxville, now know as the Hope Resource Center, which counsels pregnant women against having abortions.
“We should be a nation of life,” Smith said. “Adoption is a solution to abortion that can save countless lives.”
By sharing her letters, she aims to call attention to cultural matters from a faith-based perspective and urge people to remember that God is always present in their lives.
“We are planting the wrong seeds in the hearts of our children with the message no God by day and violence everywhere on television at night,” Smith said.
