Do we need God?Do we need God? I am not a religious person, and I used to be almost hostile of Christianity. My views have slowly softened quite a lot, especially after I started reading about Islam. I notice Christianity is spreading in China at a time the country is booming (the same for South Korea), and is weak in Europe, a continent and a civilization that seems to be on its deathbed. Tiny, Jewish Israel has managed to stave off repeated Islamic attacks for decades. I remember an article I posted before:
The Spiritual Malaise That Haunts Europe
Europe is depopulating itself in numbers greater than at any time since the Black Death of the 14th century. When an entire continent, healthier, wealthier and more secure than ever before, fails to create the human future in the most elemental sense — by creating the next generation — something serious is afoot. Demographic vacuums don't stay vacuums; they get filled — in Europe's case, by Islamic immigrants. Europe's effort to create a tolerant, civil, democratic civilization by cutting itself off from one of that civilization's sources — Jewish and Christian convictions about the dignity of the person — is likely to fail.
Is our lack of religion the reason for our indecisiveness and difficulty in seeing right from wrong?
