Losing our Religion – Signs of the Times
By David Robertson, theweeflea:
This is part two of John Macleod’s articles in the Daily Mail on the state of the Church in Scotland today. You can read the first one here – Losing Our Religion – The Daily Mail on the State of the Church in Scotland
Again there is plenty for us to reflect on in the article I reproduce below. John’s argument that the outward Christian character and institutions of our culture have been steadily eroded is well made and I think incontrovertible. The loss of Sunday, knowledge of the Bible and the imposition of secular humanist values as if they are the only ones, are key factors in this decline. There are other factors I would add….but there is sufficient below to give us pause for thought. And of course we need to remember that the Lord is on the throne. It may be that he is not finished with us yet and of course he can revive and renew us. We have been here before! But our crying need is for prayer, repentance and a return to the preaching of Christs word. Let Scotland flourish by the preaching of the Word!
