One of the key phrases in any scenario is, "it's possible," or "it's likely," or "if current trends continue."Many scenarios of the future presently being bandied about project the decline of Christianity. They say, "if current trends continue, _x_ will happen by 2050." Remember that 2050 is 35 years off. That's a generation and more. It's plenty of time to make a difference. It's plenty of time to make sure current trends don't continue. The future is not inevitable. It is chosen, and even the smallest person can make a difference.
