I grew up in a Christian family. I started going to Sunday school when I was 5. Continued on till about 8th grade when I started going to regular church with my parents and older brother. Every Sunday morning we would all dress up and get our dose of religion (for a time, my dad and my brother and I all had matching London Fog raincoats we would all wear when the weather demanded it). My grandparents went to church every Sunday. My aunts and uncles and cousins all went to church every Sunday. Most of my friends and their parents went to church every Sunday. Funny thing is...in all those churchgoing years, no one (in all my family and friends) ever spoke of God or religion outside of church - except perhaps a quick prayer before dinner. One might think that it would have been worthwhile after all that effort for so many years to at least bring up the subject occasionally outside of the worship service. I think it might of had something to do with how many believed (and still believe today) that it was not appropriate to discuss politics or religion. That being said: I think the governments of the world are leading us to destruction and the only hope for mankind is repentance and acceptance of Jesus Christ as savior.
