Millions of Americans fail to realize that what happens in Great Britain generally happens here in America a few years later.
The hippie and free love movement back in the 1960s started in Great Britain and quickly spread to our shores, especially the western shores of California. Around the same time, the Beatles surfaced and changed the sound of music in our country.
National Health Care was launched in Great Britain long before anyone thought it would materialize here, but alas, thanks to Barack Obama, we once again have followed the trodden path of the British.
In the 1980s, the number of Christians in Great Britain began to decline. Church congregations in many areas became so small that they had to close the church and sell the buildings. Some of those church buildings were converted into pubs, some hotels and others into mosques.
A close friend of mine lives in Great Britain and has told me on more than one occasion that he has seen many Christian churches close their doors in the past decade. What he found to be quite alarming is that in some areas, almost all of the Christian churches have been converted into Muslim mosques. Entire communities and some towns have been completely taken over by Muslims, often driving out Christian families that have lived there for generations.
On Feb. 20, 2004, the British Church Newspaper published an article titled ‘More Muslim Worshippers Than Anglicans?’ A statement in that article spelled out what my friend had been telling me about the influx of Muslims in Great Britain. It stated:
“Attendance at Britain’s mosques has outstripped the number of regular worshippers in the Church of England for the first time, with figures showing that 930,000 Muslims attend a place of worship at least once a week, compared to 916,000 Anglicans. The Church lost 100,000 worshippers between 2000 and 2002.”
The Church of England is not the only Christian denomination in the UK, but it is one of the most influential. The declining trend seen in the Church of England is also being seen in virtually every other Christian denomination as well.
A more recent report states that the number of people in England and Wales who identify themselves as Christians is 4.1 million fewer in the 2011 census than in the previous census. That is an overall decline of 10% in a relatively short time.
On the flip side of the situation, there has been a massive influx of Muslims into the country. The number of Muslims in England and Wales during the same time frame has increased by 75%. This influx is having a dramatic effect on the overall religious climate of the British Isles so much so that 1 of every 10 Britains under the age of 25 claims to be Muslim. The number of people under the age of 25 that claim to be Christian has dropped to less than 5 of every 10.
Keith Porteous Wood, Executive Director of the National Secular Society commented on the latest findings, saying:
“In another 20 years there are going to be more active Muslims than there are churchgoers.”
“The time has now come that institutional Christianity is no longer justified, the number has dropped below critical mass for which there is no longer any justification for the established Church.”
If you don’t think this is happening in the US, then you better wake up and smell the coffee. America is also experiencing a huge influx of Muslims, especially since Obama took over as president. Muslims are taking over communities and cities in the US including Dearborn, Michigan and Murfreesboro, Tennessee. We have seen Muslim judges rule on sharia law instead of American law.
We’ve also been witnessing a decline in the number of Americans identifying themselves as Christians. I’ve seen numerous reports of churches closing their doors because they can’t afford to remain open due to small numbers. One of the programs on TV that my wife and I like to watch shows people who turn buildings and other things into very nice homes. We’ve seen a few couples who have bought closed churches and converted them into luxury homes.
We’re not very far behind Great Britain in the change of culture. At the current rate of change, I wouldn’t be surprised to see our numbers of Christians versus Muslims match Britain’s by the end of Obama’s current term in office. Christian America is almost a thing of the past.
When we turned our back on God, He turned us over to our sinful ways and now we are reaping what we have sowed as a nation. Without a national repentance, starting with the leadership on down, we are destined to become a pagan nation with a motto – One Nation Under Allah.
