The State of Religion in Europe
August 8, 2007 2 Comments
Ravi Zacharias’ lecture at Columbia University is again the source of the following,
When you look, for example, at the European scene. Europe is living under an illusion that it is expelling religion.
Nature abhors a vacuum, Europe will not be irreligious for long, another religion will take over and completely change their culture.
And the reason is: the religion that was given by choice is being evicted, until a religion that probably doesn’t give them a choice will take over.
Prince Charles has said when he becomes the monarch, he is going to be calling himself “The Defender of the Faiths” rather than “Defend of the Faith”.
Well, if that is what he is going to do, England is going to have to rethink what its future is going to look like.
France is in trouble that way, Germany is in trouble that way.
I speak to a Swiss individual on a daily basis and he has echoed Ravi’s words regarding Islam in Europe. Any European concur in Zacharias’ assessment?
