If you believe this, then you do not have faith in God.

"It will die out or cease to be Christian."

Mormonism chose the latter.

We can all home that religion eventually evolves into humanism. Then everyone can follow the Univeral Moral Code.
No more honor killings.
No more preaching against condom use in AIDS ravaged Africa.
No more children dying due to prayer healing.

A man can dream...

So, we should all be postmodernists and deny the existence of absolute truth and the authority of Scripture?

You forgot the most important one of all #11. Because it is wrong and wrong-headed, and the Truth will prevail in the End.

Modernist are too wrapped up in humanism, worshiping at the alter of the state and liberation theology to even acknowledge the existence of God.

Hopefully they will have a ‘come to Jesus’ moment.

Don’t know. We’ve been waiting centuries for the Roman church to die off or become Christian and it hasn’t happened yet.

True faith in Jesus Christ will never die. Everything else Jesus said is coming true. Remember these words - “Thou art Peter and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. The humanists are not true Christians even today. A prime example are the politicians in Washington who claim the moniker of Catholic and then repeatedly vote for and speak for abortion. Their faith retired to Florida years ago. If the Religion loses them, what does it matter? Christianity will live in the hearts of genuine people until the end. It is true that there are fewer young people in church, but there are some. These are the true Christians, those with the guts to follow the faith, much like the Christians of the earlier Chutch. There is no question in my mind that there will some Christians on the last day. They may be few, but they will be the ones with the true wisdom. Heaven may not be crowded, but that is okay with me.

I vote for the “cease to be Christian” route. The modernist liberals will still have their little club to bolster their practical atheism, with a nominal “christian” name attached - just to make them feel good.

There's been talk about this for at least 30 years. Try this article: The Death of Protestant America: A Political Theory of the Protestant Mainline. If a religion doesn't have strong beliefs and values and if it's members don't have children and raise them to believe and act according to their beliefs it will decline.

But mainstream or liberal or "modernist" religion isn't going to die out. However strong and numerous conservative or traditionalist churches become, there are always going to be backsliders -- people born into the religion who like some things but don't accept all the dogmas -- and those people will gravitate to other, less rigorous denominations.
