Catholics set to pass Anglicans as leading UK church
Roman Catholicism is set to become the dominant religion in Britain for the first time since the Reformation because of massive migration from Catholic countries across the world.
Catholic parishes will swell by hundreds of thousands over the next few years after managing years of decline, according to a new report, as both legal and illegal migrants enter the country.
It says that the influx of migrants could be the Catholic community‚Äôs ‚Äúgreatest threat‚ÄĚ or its ‚Äúgreatest opportunity‚ÄĚ.
While in some places the Catholic Church has responded positively, in others it has been ‚Äúoverwhelmed‚ÄĚ by the scale of the challenge. The growth of Catholicism in Britain comes as the established Church of England and the Anglican provinces in Scotland, Wales and Ireland face continuing, if slow, decline....
GG, so what you're saying is Islam is God's true religion because it is the fasting growing religion in the world. You really need to think before you post, especially since you have no scripture to back you up (at least not in context)
"Many of the Christian denominations also produce membership figures in their annual yearbooks and the Christian Research Association produces the biennial UK Christian Handbook, (Brierley, 1994) which contains statistical information on the Christian Churches.
This means that with regard to the Jewish and Christian communities there is a reasonable amount of statistical material, the validity and reliability of which goes beyond uncertain extrapolations drawn from ethnicity statistics.
There are, however, also significant issues here which make comparability difficult. ***Roman Catholic figures often relate to the total numbers of baptised Catholics whether or not these individuals have any continuing connection with the life of the Catholic Church.***
Baptist figures, however, generally only relate to adult members and many local Baptist congregations only admit into full membership those who have taken an individual choice to be baptised as adult believers."
This is a load of rubbbish. It is put about to make prods feel under threat.
Remember there are only about 4.2m catholics in the UK Catholics are always obsessed with numbers but we trust and have faith in the Thrice Holy God.
(2Ki 6:16) And he answered,Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that,be with them.
(2Ki 6:17) And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
This situation is less about religion and more about globalism. The English who do practice religion are not leaving the Anglican communion (which they should do) for Romanism (which they should never do). As the national barriers are broken down by the EU in Europe and NAFTA & GATT in the Americas, not only will nationalities and ethnicities be blurred but religion will also. The object is the same as Nimrod's and Satan's - a New World Order! Scratch away the surface differences between liberal & conservative, socialist & capitalist, Republican & Democrat and you have the same goal. One world, one human race, one religion - and it ain't gonna be Biblical Christianity. But Jesus WILL settle all accounts some day. Maranatha.
"Ah, England, England! what pride, luxury, lasciviousness, licentiousness, wantonness, drunkenness, cruelties, injustice, oppressions, fornications, adulteries, falsehoods, hypocrisy, bribery, atheism, horrid blasphemies, and hellish impieties, are now to be found rampant in the midst of you!
Ah, England! England! how are the Lord's pure ordinances despised, Scriptures rejected, the Spirit resisted and derided, the righteous reviled, wickedness tolerated, and Christ many thousand times in a day by these cursed practices, afresh crucified!
Ah, England! England! were our forefathers alive, how sadly would they blush to see such a horrid degenerate posterity as is to be found in the midst of you! How is our forefathers' generosity converted into riot and luxury, their frugality into pride and prodigality, their simplicity into subtlety, their sincerity into hypocrisy, their charity into cruelty, their chastity into fornication and wantonness, their sobriety into drunkenness, their plain-dealing into fraud, their works of compassion into works of oppression, and their love to the people of God into an utter enmity against the people of God!" (Thomas Brooks 1665. [Puritan])
the supposed "true" Christianity which arrived homogeneously on the Isles(founded locally by men and their temporal king) has fallen into terrible disarray and is shrinking because it's diseased with unbelief and liberalism instead of the truth. It was founded by temporal people and now visibly shows how temporary it was, since it has lost faith in the God of the Bible.
"Roman Catholicism is set to become the dominant religion in Britain for the first time since the Reformation because of massive migration from Catholic countries across the world."
Looks like the island of Britain is set for destruction by migration. The Muslim and his popish brother are bringing the response to a secular and insipid nation of PC and liberalism.
True Christianity and True Faith is erased from this once "Great" Britain. And justly so for they have rejected God, His Son and His Word and His authority.
*Rom 1:18 "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, WHO HOLD THE TRUTH in unrighteousness; *25 Who CHANGED THE TRUTH of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen."
Britain is being destroyed. And there are more signs of this than this news item.
