The American Enlightenment was not a religious movement, but here it was far less anti-clerical than in Europe, and its concern with human rights was influenced by the Puritan and Quaker emphasis on the experience of conscience. This does not imply that he believed more fully in the inspiration of every word than did Luther, or that Melanchthon was less convinced that the Bible alone gives man certainty; but that Calvin took the concept of the whole Bible as the very word of God more deeply than did either Luther or Melanchthon, and it had for him more practical consequences.

So one way would be to become a true Christian and reject that way. Most studies, however, have focused almost exclusively on economic change, particularly on the relationship between "traditional" and "modern" economic sectors and the transition from the former to the latter, (e.g. And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. The contributions to the welfare of the nation made by such men as Bishop John England and Archbishops John Hughes, John Ireland, John Keane, and Martin Spalding, as well as James Cardinal Gibbons, proved that Catholic culture could enrich American life.

The BBC found that 26% of people over the age of 65 attend church, as opposed to 11% of those between the ages of 16 and 44. [15] Britannica Online says that the Church of England has more members than other churches, but there is greater dedication among members of non-conformist congregations. [16] The Office for National Statistics confirmed in its 2001 census that 15% of people in England do not claim any religion. [17] Research in 2005 concluded that the number of citizens who belonged to a religion and attended services at any church had decreased by 41% in 41 years, while those who said they did not belong to any religion and did not attend services increased by 35% in the same amount of time. [18] These numbers point to the increasing secularization of the country.

How many Christians are made by the tons of Testaments distributed by missionaries to the heathen? They are at the heart of the Reformers’ call for the church to return to biblical teaching. Orthodox Christians today, clergy and laity alike, are to be defenders of the faith—a faith that was handed down to us from the Apostles—not in arrogance, but in truth and love.13 With this in mind, I must say that not every form of Christianity even if they are Trinitarian is equal in its ability to transform the person into the likeness of God—a perfection we are commanded to achieve ( Matthew 5:48 ).

Their rejection, Catholics say, results in a truncated and reduced understanding of the Christian reality." 1 Any one-line list of comparisons, such as this one, is inevitably simplistic. The unity of this imagined community is based on shared faith and religious practices, but the expansion of the social networks that conversion and membership in a Protestant congregation lead to can also be very "real."
