Q: Does God ever give up on a nation, because it keeps shutting Him out of its life? I can’t help but wonder if that’s happening to us, with all our evil ways. — E. McD.
A: I’ll assume you are referring to the Christian god. Let’s compare the United State with the two most populous countries, China and India. These countries have relatively few Christians compared to the US. Approximately 78% of Americans are Christian while less than 4% of Chinese and less than 3% of Indians are Christians. The majority of Chinese (68%) are non-religious and the majority of Indians (80%) are Hindus. If the the Christian god was the one, true god, then the US should possess a distinct advantage over these other nations. For much of the past one hundred years, this would have appeared to be true, but China and India have shown tremendous economic growth over the last 10-20 years. From 1990-2005 China exhibited 10% economic growth per year. In the last decade, India has averaged more than 7% growth per year. During these same periods, the US averaged less than 3% growth per year. If the Christian god rewarded those who worshiped it, it would not make sense for these nations with very few Christians to show these larger economic growth rates. The most likely explanation is that the Christian god (or any other) is not real. Your god has not given up on any nation, because it does not exist.
