It’s so easy to lose faith in things.
A wrong decision, a personal loss, or circumstances surrounding you can make everyone ask, “Why should I continue down this path?” Well, there’s more to it than you might think.
We’re talking about a new Fox News report by Pete Hegseth noting that Christianity may soon become a minority religion in the United States. According to the Pew Research Center, the number of Americans who identify themselves as Christian has fallen from 90 percent in the 1990s to 78 percent in 2007. Today it is only 64 percent.
“Our nation’s faith is declining at an alarming rate,” Hegseth said. “The question is why.”
Many factors contribute to people questioning their belief in God. Part of it is the conditions of the world.

We are just emerging from one of the worst pandemics we have seen in modern times. Not to mention the inflation that has left many unable to settle for themselves and their loved ones. And then there are the social media sites that scrutinize even the smallest things — and yes, that includes religion.
“Previous generations passed on all the needs of the world and not enough of the needs,” Hegseth continued. “They took for granted the main ingredient for all these worldly advances – and that is faith. Believe in something greater than ourselves.”
“Nothing else matters or even makes sense without a sincere reckoning with our Creator. It’s the most important thing I can teach my kids – and you, yours.”
Hegseth noted how some people took Christianity for granted, how easily it was brushed aside. And we think that’s something a lot of people are seeing right now. They wonder why they should keep believing in something when so many negative things are happening in the world.

Well, we’re here to assure you that you should.
Having faith in your Creator is quite simply the most important thing you can have. That’s because with this belief, you can know that you’re really making a difference, even if it doesn’t feel like it. When you wake up with questions on your mind, you’re still making a difference.
This is where the story of Running the Bases comes into play.
We’ve wanted to make this film for a long time, but you’d be surprised at how much opposition we’ve encountered with Hollywood for its Christian themes.
But we kept going. We continued without a major Hollywood partner and made the film the way we wanted it to be. We did it on our terms and with the tone and approach we were looking for. As a result, we created a film that doesn’t lean on its Christianity like a crutch, but celebrates it.
The faith of the film’s main characters may be questioned, but they never give it up. As a result, against all odds, they push toward their success. This is a lesson many can learn now as they reflect on their own Christianity, even in the face of so many questioning its place in the world.
So please don’t give up. If you believe in something, believe in something. You can certainly ask questions, but never lose sight of what you believed in in the first place. Never lose sight of what it means for you and your family.
Stay true to yourself and what you believe in. It worked for us.
