As the falling away accelerates, I sincerely feel it is but a short time until the end.
who writes these things, Satan?
But the mosques are doing great business.

What do you expect when the Church of England’s own Arch-bishop suggest that they embrace Shariah and call God “Allah”?
With that kind of milquetoast relativism, it’s a wonder anyone attends the Church of England. What’s the point? What do they stand for?
You said — “As the falling away accelerates, I sincerely feel it is but a short time until the end.”
Jesus did ask if He would find faith when He returned...
People will go somewhere for their "spiritual needs". When the communists in China and Russia tried to exterminate religion, they got worship of Lenin and Stalin (well their slowly rotting corpses anyhow) in Russia. Communism fell and Christianity came back in massive force. China had Mao and his little red book and when communism weakened slightly in rushed Christianity and Falun Gong as real hope for the future.
The firghtening possibility for UK is that their spiritual needs might be met by Islam in the future.
Uh, like what?
I suppose it sort of depends on whether you believe less church attendence is causing the decline, or a symptom of the decline. Certainly religious belief is not declining - quite on the contrary, in spite of what National Secular Society fondly hopes.
You can almost feel the glee in Mr Porteus-Wood’s voice. What kind of person gets a kick out of witnessing other people’s distress? It’s a strange thing...secularists love to ridicule religous institutions and people, but religious folk are largely unconcerned about secular groups (apart from offering help).
