‘UK Christianity: Is It Over?’

See the source image

I think of the British martyrs, going all the way back to Saints Aaron and Julius, and St. Alban, in Roman times–and if grieves me to see the state of our mother country. Not that we’re exactly swimming in holiness on this side of the Atlantic.

UK Christianity: Is It Over?

Reading British fiction gives me the impression that Christianity was in deep trouble in Britain over a hundred years ago. And the two world wars didn’t help.

But, oh, depressing thought! Replacing God, replacing Jesus Christ Our King, with your… “friends.”

I don’t think I can think of anything more hopeless than that.

  1. So this is how the world ends; not with a bang, but with a whimper. No society is stronger than its spiritual life. False gods, or no god will make for a predictable end.

  2. Seems that the great falling away began a long time ago. . I have been shocked recently to hear how friends living in a different area now have stopped attending church, and doing different things. I never thought I would see anything like this. Too many church leaders have lost their way, and seem to think that the clear messages in the Bible are too boring for their crowd and are teaching “other things”. Disaster.

    1. That’s a big part of the problem. Many churches, in our day, serve a watery soup of feel-good platitudes, seasoned with the occasional Bible verse, frequently taken out of content. One can get such information quite easily, without leaving their easy chair.

    2. And some Christians have not left their churches as much as their churches have left them–mine, for instance.
      I suspect Christianity is stronger in America than it appears to be on the surface.

    3. The growth seems to be apart from the mainstream denominations, and this is a worldwide phenomenon. In the US, there are a lot of people that want the word of God and want to apply it in their lives. The church is not made up of bricks and mortar, but of humans.

  3. I know a lot of people are searching everywhere for the pure, true Gospel, no watering down, no equivocating- and ministers do not seem to realize that. They seem to think people want to hear jokes, stories and “new” stuff. If only they would wake up and give it to people straight- no religious rituals, no man made stuff, just truth that can make a difference.
