I had a talk with a member of the first quorum of the seventy about 18 years ago and he said the church was not growing much. The only thing keeping it going was the members having babies.
I figure a third of the church membership are active if even that. I would imagine the church is shrinking now. The church’s policies towards gays have upset many people to where they have left or are no longer active. People I never thought would leave have.
Right now there is a go getter narcissist running the church. He’s making a lot of moves to attempt to keep the younger members in the church. I don’t think much is going to come from his changes. I don’t think the church knows what to do but it’s leaders egos will never admit it.
