Cities 'shun church at Christmas'


Manchester has the lowest Christmas church attendance

Churches in England's biggest cities see a "meagre" rise in attendance at Christmas, while it leaps 200% in rural areas, according to a study.

Manchester had fewest churchgoers, followed by Liverpool, London, Sheffield, Bradford and Birmingham, a survey of Anglican dioceses found.

Hereford diocese had the most, with 10% of residents in church, five times as many as Manchester.

The survey was conducted by Dr David Voas from the University of Manchester.

Jim: Continued. The only reason to receive Jesus as personal savior is to avoid going to Hell when pass away. That was the reason that Christ was crucified, to save manking from Hell.

Jim: The Catholic Bible was the first Bible ever printed on the printing press. The King James Bible was not even translated until the middle ages. The Catholic Bible is not a false Bible because it was translated from the original languages. And it makes no difference if the Catholic Bible contains the Apocryphal Books. The definition of a cult is not the one that you gave. The way to tell a cult is that a cult does not accept the belief in the Holy Trinity and the belief in the Deity of Christ. That is why Jehovah Witness, Mormons and Christian Science are called cults because they deny the Holy Trinity and they deny the Deity of Christ. The Catholic Church does not and never has believed that the Virgin Mary is a deity. I do not remember reading that before about the Virgin Mary. Do you believe that the Lutheran, Methodist and Presbyterian Churches are cults? I am remaining Catholic with a clear conscience since I do disregard the unscriptural doctrines of the Catholic Church and adhere to the scriptural doctrines of the Catholic Church and every night when I go to bed I rededicate my life to Jesus and ask Him to forgive any sins that I may have committed during the day.

John, it is not the beliefs we hold in common -- and if some observation below the surface was done, some of those beliefs would not be common either. The Bible is the Word of God. There are no additions to It, by any church -- including the Catholic one! One of the quickest ways of defining a cult is a religious organization that has to "refine" the meaning of the Bible. The Catholic and Protestant churches do not even have the same Bible, and I would submit, that the Catholic Bible is false. Protestants believe in the deity of Christ, but Christians do not believe in the deity of Mary and the "Catholic" saints. Veneration is only given to God, sinlessness can only be attributed to the Trinity, and not the Trinity plus one, Mary.

Neil, I don't see much in common with Christians and Catholics in belief or practice.

Jim: What difference does it make what church someone who has received Jesus goes to just as long as the church believes in the historic Christian doctrines of belief that the Bible is the word of God, belief in the Holy Trinity, belief in the Deity of Christ, belief in the Death, Burial and Resurrection of Christ and the belief that Christ is the way of salvation?

John, the means that most Protestants don't think we are under a bunch of man-made rules that supposedly has eternal consequences if we don't obey them? You are right, we try to follow Bible. Fundamentalists have good church attendance on the whole. Many Mainliners realize the lack of substance of their worship services, so they do not go. It's a pity that many Catholics have not come to the same realization about their own church services. It is even more pity that both groups don't go to a Bible believing church for worship services.

Is it not true that Protestants do not consider it a sin to miss church? If that is the case then nobody should be surprised that in most Protestant churches on Sundays that the attendance is down.

This is typical for American mainline churches. They have many twice-a-year "Christians." This is what happens when tradition takes over substance. Finally, church attendance becomes tradition and a rather meaningless one at that.

If you look around your streets and shoping centres, it will not surprise you to find that there is not one thing about CHRIST,but going by some churches not far from were i live there is a huge christmass tree in the entrance hall of one and another huge tree in the front carpark of the other,does this not speak volumes,is the world not taking over the church.
I wonder if next week these churches will be open on the LORDS day,but i suspect not,as the LORDS day won't fit in with their idea of christmass.
They would rather have santa claus.
THAN JESUS SAVES
