Christianity and the UK???

state and churchBritons should be “more confident about our status as a Christian country”, the UK Prime Minister David Cameron has recently said causing a number of leading voices to express concerns in in every form of email, letter, and social media posting…

Very interesting article from GlobalNet21 today: http://www.globalnet21.org/nation-faiths-none/

Starts out with: This is an unusual statement for a British Prime Minister in a country like the UK that does not display religion openly like for example the United States. And it is open to debate as well. As the letter to the Telegraph points out, ” Repeated surveys, polls and studies show that most of us as individuals are not Christian in our beliefs or our religious identities.”

So, there are two issues: first, the Faith of Christianity and second, the Religion of Christianity. The religion of Christianity, just like the religions of Islam and all the others have historically enslaved their followers in an ever increasing set of rules, laws, and meaningless ritual. The faith of Christianity is something entirely different though…  I was recently reading in the book of Hebrews chapter 2 where the writer notes, about the purpose and role of Jesus, the Christ: “free those who all their lives were held in slavery…” The bigger religions get the less freedom there is about the place…  And surprisingly it is pretty much the same for government…

I’ve decided I am going to spend a lot more time writing about this going forward…
