I spewed myself out and disappeared, Trog. Just happened by first time in 6 months and saw your question.

This post, nor the accompanying article, surprise me in the least since neither of them were written by Christians but solely for the purpose of antagonizing and mocking.

But, God won't be mocked. The state of the world, as well as the state of true, biblical Christianity, is not a shock. Neither has it taken God by surprise since He foretold it so accurately.

A simple internet search will show from sources both secular and religious, that Christians are the most oppressed and persecuted people group in the world. And yet, in the countries where they're being tortured and murdered for simply believing in Jesus, owning a bible, and for refusing to deny Him, the number of Christians continues to grow by the hundreds of thousands.

God's time-line is progressing exactly as planned. The mockers and the anti-God folks will soon get exactly what they want - an entire world without God or Christians. The problem is, without the hand of God holding back the influence of the wicked, it will be let loose on the earth and they'll all reap the consequences of it.

For the record, those who are "leaving" Christianity were never Christians to begin with. Simply claiming to be a Christian doesn't make anyone one. (1 John 2:19 and Matthew 7:21-23) So, as the numbers for Christianity in the west are steadily declining, it's simply a weeding of the crops per God's plan established thousands of years ago. So, the fact is, Christians aren't declining in number.... the fakes are. The Bible is clear that the number of true, biblical Christians is very few. Matthew 7:13-14.

You said God won't be mocked, the truth is he cannot be mocked and you are deceiving yourself to believe God can be mocked. There is a huge difference. When a man mocks, he is mocking himself and will reap the consequences from his own mocking.

Whoever sows to please their flesh, "FROM" >>>>>> the flesh(not from God who he thinks he is mocking)........... will reap destruction.

You have it wrong too about those leaving what you think is christianty, they are leaving it because of what it's become..... A den of vipers.

Christianity is not failing. God is certainly not failing. We just need to read the Bible to know that as time progresses, things are going to get worse, not better. This worsening is evident everywhere, if you take the time to look: television, movies, music, etc. It is obvious that the moral content of these things continues to worsen. Look at politics: corruption, etc. It continues to worsen. Look at the institution of marriage. The US and many other countries have abandoned God's plan for marriage. Keep watching and you will continue to see the implosion of the world. But, within this morass of chaos, Christians are to be a light to this darkening world, sharing the Gospel, pointing people to Jesus. That is the mission. The world is passing is away, I need to take the mission seriously. Let us encourage each other to take the mission seriously.
