England and Wales now minority Christian countries, census reveals | Census | The Guardian
"The census revealed a 5.5 million drop in the number of Christians..."
"37.2% of people – 22.2 million – declared they had “no religion”, the second most common response after Christian." This is up from (IIRC) 25.4% 10-years ago
"The chief executive of Humanists UK, Andrew Copson, said: “One of the most striking things about these census results is how at odds the population is from the state...
What are, in your opinion, the defining characteristics of a Christian?
There are 41,000+ denominations in Christianity. That fact alone shows that there have to be a lot of differences between them. But are there still communalities left? Has the claim to be a Christian any value any more?
Being an atheist answers exactly one question and nothing more. Does being a Christian tell me more?
Asian faiths try to save sacred swastika corrupted by Hitler
I think the symbol needs to be reclaimed back to its former meaning throughout Dharmic religions and faiths and shouldn't be decried or banned just because the Nazi regime had stolen and tarnished its religious significance.
Hypothetically, had Hitler used the cross instead of the swastika, would the cross itself be banned and decried?
The swastika needs to be returned and used in its orginal form and context in religion....
What do you believe about the Bible?”
Do you understand it to be God’s direct communication to humanity? Do you think that the Bible is totally of Him and from Him? Do you understand that without His divine revelation about Himself and His created beings, finite and fallen humanity is left with only opinions, guesses, and speculations about who God is, Jesus Christ and the gospel which offers salvation, freedom, hope, and eternal life?
Lucifer Is a One-of-a-Kind “Good Guy” Among Literary Villains
Complete literary role reversal.
So. A question directed at mythological Christian lore.
Is lucifer a good guy or the bad guy?
I see lucifer as a good guy exposing the tyranny and iron rule of a malevolent and evil diety that will kill anyone not in complete obedience to it.
I remember thinking God was good at first, but there are enough examples in the Bible and apocryphal works that suggest otherwise when the...
God created the world in 6 days; on the seventh, He rested. The Hebrew calendar is now the 5783rd year. Will Jesus come in the year 6000? Therefore, until the "end of darkness," 6000-5787=213 years. Our wars and troubles, atheism, abortion, and LGiBT, hopefully, will be replaced by normal life and healthy society in the few coming years because a country cannot rot for 213 years if it is already as rotten as it is now, in 2022 AD. My list reduces the population of the planet. Hence, it is...

Sabbath Day, Please Read all....
"Listen to this, O house of Jacob, you who are called by the name of Israel."
This, "you are called by the name of Israel" is pejorative in context: Do you seriously think you deserve to be called Israel? Throughout the chapter two persons or personages are juxtaposed both related to the name "Israel":
Two nations are in thy womb בטנ, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels מעי, and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; though the elder,...
The key idea (mentioned here by several threads here) in eschatological religions is that the world (and humans) need to be saved because how bad the world is becoming with humans straying from X (X being one's chosen religion). The problem with the idea is this:-
In any objective measure of human development, humans in general are far better off today than any time in past history (and this is true on a fairly continuous basis since 1900s). One can choose any measure of human...
