Britain: "Let's Return To Christian Roots"

A nation that has been consistently described as "Post Christian," is re-thinking its present moral condition and the matter of its Christian roots.

Britain has been fertile ground for Darwinism, atheism and secular progressivism for generations, but a recent poll released by Oxford University indicates that a large majority is ready for a return to their Christian roots.

A recent Oxford University poll found that 64%, nearly two-thirds of Brits feel Christianity should make a comeback in the country and the culture.

And 57% of the people felt that Christianity should be taught to students in a way that helps them better understand the history of their country.

A slight majority, 51%, even felt that Christianity should be taught to students because it will provide a moral compass to help them decipher right from wrong.

Imagine that.

Andrea Williams with Christian Concern, told One News Now, "It is striking that so much of the public sees the need for Christianity to be taught properly. We are often given the impression that teaching about Jesus and His message is old-fashioned and irrelevant to a modern generation, but this survey shows that many people value the Christian framework."

People in many contemporary cultures are becoming more confused and conflicted about a basis for moral decisions.

You can be sure the naysayers are out in force this week in England, trying to divert the attention turned toward Christianity and explain why this can't happen.

But I see a grain of hope in all this.

This could well indicate a low point in which people recognize that the alternatives are failing---miserably, and begin to re-consider.

Our country is likely not there yet, but it is apparent that under President Obama we are rushing toward the moral bottom, as he commits to the expansion of abortion, the redefinition of marriage and seemingly opposing everything Christian, while claiming to be a "Christian."

It could be that this would create an American epiphany in regard to our own spiritual roots and personal needs.

And remember it only takes a spark to get a fire going---and another "Great Awakening."

God help us.

Be vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.
