Mississippi, Alabama and other Southern states are among the most highly religious states in the nation, while New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont and Maine in New England are among the least devout, according to some of the key measures used to determine levels of religiosity in the Pew Research Center’s most recent Religious Landscape Study.
To begin, select a state to see where it ranks in terms of overall religiosity. In exploring the interactive it is important to keep in mind that differences between two states may not always be statistically significant due to the margins of error that are inherent in this survey data.

“But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall a away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons….” I Tim. 4:1
From the December 2017 data we can see that 60% of self-identified American Christians hold to at least one of four New Age beliefs. The four are astrology, psychics, reincarnation, and spiritual energy in physical objects like trees and mountains. If all of the New Age beliefs would of been included in the survey instead of just these four, I am afraid the percentage would be much higher. The seducing spirits are taking many captive. I hope the born again Christian is paying attention to the signs of the times.
