The Christian Post
reports that the study shows 38 percent of churches reported a decline in giving in 2009. Only 29 percent reported the same the previous year.
Churches in the Pacific and Mountain states were hit the hardest this year. They experienced a 55 percent and 46 percent decline in giving, respectively.
Washington Times Religion Editor Julia Duin appeared on Monday's CBN Newschannel's Morning program to talk about this troubling trend.
