EDINBURGH – While nearly the whole of Christendom is aware, at least to some extent – of the persecution being wrought upon the followers of Christ in many countries, the same are blissfully unaware of the attacks upon the church by humanism and secularism.
These twin threats to the faith once delivered the saints are enjoying a rising popularity in Western nations that were once considered mighty fortresses of our God. Like wolves in sheep’s clothing, they appear in the name of tolerance, acceptance, equality, and understanding. This is particularly insidious because the only tolerance, acceptance, equality, and understanding they want is for themselves. They do not accept the concept that Christianity should exclude or in any way offend unbelievers.
In 2017, the Humanist Society conducted more than 3,200 wedding ceremonies, an eight percent increase over the previous year. Church-sanctioned weddings declined by 14 percent over the same period to fewer than 3,200.
A spokesperson for the Society reiterated her compatriot’s remarks, declaring that “Scotland has become a nation where it is now the norm, not the exception, to have a non-religious Humanist approach to life.”
Christians create a war against themselves . People get tired of hearing how they are evil and deserve hell,when they are not evil.Get tired of waiting on Christians to finally pull their finger out an get moving an hurry up and actually fix ongoing faith abuses, or attend to sex abuses (promptly)
People become sick of it
Get tired of Christian idea of religious liberty, of which is in fact only negative form of liberty at best (IE: relies on luck of birthright,in regard of what choice of faith group your parents happen to follow.If they follow a cult?,have become trapped in a cult?then too bloody bad for you then,as your luck is bad luck)
Perhaps Christian should wise up to the amount of persecution constantly happening through faith abuses?. Due to bullshit form of religious liberty, of what in turn then harms a whole lot of people, an then in effect also turns them right off religion
The silent war ,on Christianity, was in fact created by uncaring and un-mindful Christian themselves, whom had become very careless and indifferent in regard to the amount of collateral harm, of what they had irresponsibly helped to prop up
Now they try and blame the cause of this situation, on other people? . Rather than learn to own their own negligence
Little wonder there is now less and less people who’d even want to be counted among their Christian following?
Sunday Assembly will be likely to include plenty of humanists.Humanist do in fact tend to get on with the job, and will in deed also be more likely to also help fight for our right, to be able have a far more positive form of religious liberty
People are tired of the Christian claim to love people, the claim to be followers of a loving God, when meanwhile loads of faith abuses are still allowed freedom to ruin lives here on earth
The Christian claim simply doesn’t stack up to reality (IE: the idea of a loving God who in turn therefore also has loving followers)
Simply doesn’t stack up to reality
And Christians have had generations of warning, to get their shit together, an attend to faith abuses ,and sex abuses
What did they do?
They did nothing. Nothing except for turn a blind eye, and still continue to act carelessly indifferent in regard of the mega amount of ongoing suffering
Now they feel sorry for themselves?
Rather than feel sorry for all those many people whom they have constantly let down throughout many generation
