However, in the article entitled A 3,000 pound Western atheism car is no match for a 1,000,000 pound global desecularization freight train I wrote:
Western academics are often uncomfortable talking about desecularization and religions which stress the supernatural. Yet, the American sociologist Peter Berger (who is a Lutheran) recently indicated, "One can say with some confidence that modern Pentecostalism must be the fastest growing religion in human history." Berger also said that he previously thought that Pentecostalism did not have a significant future in Europe, but he now sees signs that it might see significant growth in Europe (see: Pentecostalism Invades Lambeth Palace).
Pentecostalism often grows fast in areas undergoing economic distress. Post 2007 there are concerns that Western economies which have high sovereign debt loads could see some significant economic turmoil in coming years - especially the European countries with aging populations that have been struggling in terms of economic growth.
On March 29, 2016, the Religion News Service reported:
In the past six years, 168 Church of England churches have closed, along with 500 Methodist and 100 Roman Catholic churches.At a conference the academic Eric Kaufmann said of religious demographic projections concerning the 21st century:
“Christianity in Britain has seen a relentless decline for over 100 years,” says Linda Woodhead, a sociologist at Lancaster University.
Visitors to Britain are often shocked when they see the state of some of this nation’s once-proud church buildings.
But for every Anglican church that has closed over the past six years, more than three Pentecostal or charismatic churches have taken their place, according to an analysis by The Times of London.
These Pentecostal and charismatic churches are drawing young, black, Asian and mixed-race people.
Pentecostalism is one of the fastest-growing movements in world Christendom, with an estimated 500 million followers.
“A century ago the face of European Christianity could have been labeled as white, but now it is increasingly becoming multicolored,” said Israel Olofinjana, a Nigerian-born minister in London told the Times.
While aging Church of England congregations decline, charismatic churches thrive.
Part of the reason I think demography is very important, at least if we are going to speak about the future, is that it is the most predictable of the social sciences.
...if you look at a population and its age structure now. You can tell a lot about the future. ...So by looking at the relative age structure of different populations you can already say a lot about the future...
...Religious fundamentalism is going to be on the increase in the future and not just out there in the developing world..., but in the developed world as well.
British pentecostals will have more children per household then their irreligious counterparts (see: Atheism and fertility rates).
"Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire." - Hebrews 12:12: 28-29 (NASB)
"Therefore behold, I will once again deal marvelously with this people, wondrously marvelous; And the wisdom of their wise men will perish, And the discernment of their discerning men will be concealed." - Isaiah 20:14 (NASB)
"For it is written, "I WILL DESTROY THE WISDOM OF THE WISE, AND THE CLEVERNESS OF THE CLEVER I WILL SET ASIDE." - 1 Corinthians 1:19 (NASB)
"When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly a sound came from heaven like the rush of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire, distributed and resting on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance" - Acts 2: 1-4
Below is a video of hydrogen bomb Tsar bomba which was the most powerful nuclear bomb ever exploded. I assure you that God can do far more destruction to global atheism. Atheists surrender now and make things easy on yourselves.
