Christianity is Europe’s Only Hope
“Europe is the faith and the faith is Europe,” observed the English writer Hilaire Belloc almost 100 years ago. Western Civilization makes no sense apart from its Christian origin and identity.

The last 100 years has proven him right. If our civilization makes no sense without Christianity, it cannot survive without Christianity. The post-Christian West is a nihilistic sinkhole. It’s hostile to the faith that birthed it. It gave up the very beliefs — in human dignity and freedom, for two — that made it what it was. It replaced them with “globalism.” (For more on this, see the late James Schall’s explanation of Belloc’s quip.)

But the nationalist-populist movement has just made a shift in strategy that could change that. Nationalists could save globalism from itself — and thereby save Europe. If, that is, they can reestablish its Christian origins. ...

Beware of whom you quote! By "Christianity" Hilaire Belloc meant Roman Catholicism. He, like other English Catholics such as G. K. Chesterton, was a Medievalist who endorsed Catholic Social Teaching instead of Capitalism, which is more "Protestant."

Perhaps the greatest era of prosperity and peace was La Belle Époque, when capitalism prevailed in America and Europe, even in nominally Catholic countries like France.

• "Providence means that we are able to live in the assurance that God is present and active in our lives. We are in his care and can therefore face the future confidently, knowing that things are not happening merely by chance. We can pray, knowing that God hears and acts upon our prayers. We can face danger, knowing that he is not unaware and uninvolved. [Erickson, p.413]

• God’s activity and our activity are not mutually exclusive. In the light of scriptural evidence we have no basis for laxity, indifference or resignation in the face of the fact that God is accomplishing his goals. Sometimes humans are conscious that their actions are fulfilling divine goals (Matthew 26:42) and sometimes people unwittingly carry out God’s plans (Luke 2:1) [Erickson, p.428-429]

• We know that everything has significance in God’s plan, but we must be careful not to assume that the meaning of everything is obvious and we should be able to identify that meaning. [Erickson, p.429]

• The doctrine of providence doesn’t not answer ‘how’ questions (how God actually governs or preserves the universe) and it does not answer ‘why’ questions (why God wills specific things to happen). ......." (Erickson)

The only hope for it in this life is war. Always has been and always will. Christianity is only what creates the righteous indignation needed to go to war to protect something of value, that being any Christian civilization protected by a military willing to go to war to protect itself from foreign Antichrist invaders of all kinds. As Europe has been pacified by the Satanic lie of pacifism, and had most all its guns confiscated, and had the UN become the global Antichrist military enemy of all mankind take over power, war is no longer possible as it was before these things happened. Thus the only hope for a Christian is to leave Europe, since Christianity cannot anymore save Europe, since it has no military willing and powerful enough to go to war to protect it in Europe. This is exactly the same for North America as well, it is also lost forever to the Antichrist and paraphillia atheist invaders.

I, for one, welcome any effort to evangelize Europe, the US, and anywhere else. Faith in Christ and repentance unto life need to be (re-)established as fpundational principles. Of course, the Lord does not usually save whole nations but is it too little to seek Him to do just that?

Thank you Gay, that is a worthwhile thing, to seek to bless someone else. It is a much needed gift in the church, so may the Lord maintain that good attitude, that you may be a blessing to many.

The Lord is extremely powerful, and can save souls at will; indeed, according to his own will. This is crucial for "there is none that seeketh after God", and "there is none righteous, no, not one".

John 17:1-2 KJV
(1)  These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
(2)  As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

Father has given to the Son authority over all mankind, and the Son gives eternal life to all those whom the Father has given to him. This is fixed and certain; salvation is assured. This is great cause for evangelism, knowing that God can do it.

what about Nineveh?

Gay, it is true that Nineveh, as a big city, had a city-wide repentance, and I rejoice in such an event.

However, many summers have passed since that glorious day, when a man reeking of fish preached the judgment of God coming on Nineveh, which resulted in the top brass calling on all his people to repent.

I'm thinking more of the words of the Lord Jesus Christ, who said:

Matthew 7:13-14 KJV
(13)  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
(14)  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

According to him, there are comparatively few who find the way to life, and comparatively many who enter by the broad gate and go to their destruction.

It becomes us to accept these facts, lest we get downhearted when our witnessing and gospel preaching produces so little fruit unto eternal life.

What these folks don't realise is that God doesn't save whole nations or whole continents from their sins. He never has done and never will. Christianity never was a political movement and never will be. Christianity does not have truck with culture, it goes counter-culture.
Unregenerate man will always seek to leave the Almighty God out of the picture, while regenerate man will always give him the preeminence. It is God's world, and he made it good. Man has rebelled against God and suffers the consequences. God in his grace has chosen to save some rebels; he has covenanted with his Son to redeem them and bring them safe to heaven. In all of this, God is glorified and exalted; his justice is revealed in the punishment of evil-doers, and his grace is revealed in the salvation of his chosen ones, who will be saved individually, not as part of a country.

Revelation 5
11 Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering zmyriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice,
a“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might
and honor and glory and blessing!”

Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
We cannot baptize a nation!
Amen and good point, Pilgrim.

Mark 16:15-16 KJV
(15)  And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
(16)  He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

I believe it true to say that no nation has ever been Christian. And those nations which are predominantly Christian, at the end of the day, will be found to have far more nominal Christians than they ever imagined. Genuine, born again, Spirit-filled, godly-living, God-fearing Christianity is much rarer than we imagine.

Psalm 86

8 There is none like you among the gods, O Lord,
nor are there any works like yours.
9 All the nations you have made shall come
and worship before you, O Lord,
and shall glorify your name.
10 For you are great and do wondrous things;
you alone are God.
