According to Harvard Professor Robert Putnam as revealed in his recently released book "American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites the United States" the most popular religion in the US is not Catholicism or Mormonism, it is Judaism.
Putnam, in a previous book he published, indicated that America was losing its social capital, but that Americans were a deeply religious people, more so on average than in Iran for example. Putnam said he thinks what brought about the surprising popularity of these historically persecuted people was that the American public may have learned the lessons of the injustice wrought upon the chosen people in the past.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
Though a recent survey says that in America the most popular religion is Judaism, the end times scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy contradicts those findings.
Harvard professor and author Robert Putnam has released his findings of a survey taken from among 3000 people, a cross section of America, that reveals Judaism is the most popular religion among Americans. These findings are very interesting; however, they are somewhat difficult to believe when one reads the reports of growing Antisemitism in America and around the world. Some have said that this survey may indicate that there are those who embrace Judaism because of guilt from the way that the world has traditionally persecuted the Jewish people. Whatever the reason for Judaism's popularity in America, the future does not bode well for the Jews.
In a seven year period of time known as the Tribulation Period, the Jewish people will not be very popular and in fact will be the focus of not only persecution but an effort for the complete annihilation of the Jewish people on earth, that scenario is revealed in Revelation 14-19. In these 16 chapters, it is evident that the sources of evil, both man and angels will try to eliminate the Jews from the world, Revelation 12:13-17. Zechariah, another ancient Jewish prophet, says that two-thirds of the Jews will be killed during this same period of time, Zechariah 13:8.
Judaism may be popular today, but in the future, the Jews will be the target for destruction.
