In Europe, Christianity has been on a decline for some time, for decades this has been the case. The United Kingdom is about a good 10 years ahead of the United States, in terms of culture. Which is holding true. Europe is so post Christian it might as well be pre-Christian at this point. I know a few missionaries that are aiding the local churches in Europe to bring back Christianity in Europe. There are some growth areas where the traditional Protestant churches have been in decline, the churches that are Evangelical and Pentecostal has been increasing over the years. This is primary from immigrants from more conservative countries like that of the Eastern Europe and Africa. One of the underlining reasons that Christianity is dying is the fact that it accepted Evolution as a position, that is accepted by the church. The Church must stand on Biblical Authority because once you take out or change Genesis 1-3, so does the whole Bible. That is what we are seeing today. Christians in the United Kingdom and the United States, have accepted Evolution back in the late 19th and 20th century, and once you have a non-Biblical position on a particular issue, the generations after you will be take it further and further and we are here today where Christianity has backslide in Western countries. This line of thinking has been popularized by Ken Ham of Answers In Genesis, in which I think he is correct on. It is the fact that the church hasn't stand firm on the Authority of the Word of God, and became weak. This is why I take no compromise in terms of Doctrine. Sure, I will fellowship with other believers that believe that God created through Evolution, but if the conversations do come up, I must take a stance. But if they know me enough, and hang out with me enough they will already know my position aka, my t-shirts. So, Norte Dame is just a physical "sign" that Christianity is burning in Europe. When I first heard about it, first thought was, that is a physical representation of what is going on spiritually in Europe.
