Almost five million Australians says they have no religious beliefs

WE love Christmas and spend billions celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, but according to a report, Australians are losing their religion.

In the past 100 years, the number of Australians reporting on the national census that they have "no religion" has jumped from one in 250 in 1911 to more than one in five in 2011.

In addition, many of those who nominate a religious affiliation do not actively participate in religious activities.

The latest Australian ­Bureau of Statistics social trends report provides the first in-depth look at the 2011 census data on religion. ...

Only Calvin's wayward children (See below) are the ones who make Calvin another Apostle or his "disciples," to confuse what Calvin said and what the Bible says. Amyraldism (Four point Calvinism) or four-point "Calvinism" is correct, because Christ gave UnLimited atonement for men.

1 John 2:1 My little children, I am writing these things to you that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;
2 and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.
3 And by this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments.---NASB

So, for anyone to deny the Bible and the statement given in verse 2 would be the heretic. Pastor Rugh goes over God's Sovereignty in Salvation John Calvin himself probably believed in Unlimited Atonement. Calvin's Wayward Children Only Election limits those who are saved.

Jim. Your being only 4/5ths of the complete truth does that make you a full heretic anyway?

"So-called four-point Calvinism fails the test of biblical Calvinism because this view tends to see the TULIP as an abstraction rather than seeing it Christocentrically. The TULIP only works when we see Christ at its center. Consider the TULIP as a chiasm with the "L" at the top of the pyramid. It is Jesus Christ which makes sense of all the doctrines of grace. Four-point Calvinists who reject Limited Atonement but embrace irresistible grace must consider this: Irresistible grace is not some abstract doctrine but must be seen in relation to Jesus Christ, specially in relation to the grace purchased by Christ upon the cross. The Spirit of Christ illuminates, regenerates and effectually brings to faith his elect" (John Hendryx)

Aklon, a partial

God, does consider every soul worth saving, if it accepts Christ.

Considering the baleful influence of the Anglican Church which is a power in Australia and one of it's ministers can write such articles as, "The sticky residues of Christian faith" (Ah, go look it up yourself.) I think Australia might be doing just as well as the USA, and except for some states, it didn't start out as a prison colony.

So, for the Christian Australians you have your work cut out for you, as indeed the Christians of the USA and Great Britain.

And the bible says that all of them are without excuse and hope,sometimes these stories carry a hint of guilt that Christians should carry around because these people reject the gospel...EVERYONE in the western world knows about Jesus Christ and have made a choice one way or the other...don't know if I should quote a rock band but in the song "Free Will" by the Canadian band Rush the line goes "if you choose not to decide you still have made a choice".....these people have beleifs,they believe they don't need a savior.

Good, you don't believe everything you hear from your official news sources. Ever since Frances Trollope at least, the English upper class have had the entertaining habit of sneering at outré American oafs. Such statistics reinforce this.

What they don't understand, as de Tocqueville did back in the 1830s, is that many Americans are (still) afraid to publicly admit they aren't Christians. Instead, they attend church sporadically but live like everyone else: lying, adulterating, etc.

I remember my Austrian tour guide who, back in '77, was certain there would be a violent popular revolution here. That is understandable, given the ideological leanings of the European press. The English edition of Der Spiegel is evidence this hasn't changed.

But at least they're more honest than Americans. I think the number of bona fide Christians in this country is greatly exaggerated, if behavior (rather than words) is any indication.

According to recent statistics there is about six and a half billion on planet earth today.

Only a "remnant" will be saved "BY" God.

With that kind of truth my personal estimate is that around six and a quarter billion will go to hell. And even that may be over conservative.

So five million Aussies is a drop in the ocean.

I agree with people who say they aren't religious. I'm not religious myself. In the majority of Bible translations believers are referred to as "servants". That is a very wrong translation of the word. The greek word is duolos, meaning (ready for a shocker?) SLAVE. That's right, slave. People: trash Paul Young's book "The Shack" and let's get back to the Bible. I'm not religious, I'm a slave, owned by Christ.

Not possible to have no religion. You're one or the other. The religion of Christ or the religion of antichrist.
