Britian May Be Losing Its Christian Identity

LONDON, England (EP) — Britain may soon lose its identity as a Christian nation according to a report prepared for the Church of England and the Council of Churches for Britain and Ireland.

The Mission Theological Advisory Group found that while many Britians profess a belief in God, there is an increasing drift away from church membership, accompanied by a growing interest in such New Age phenomenon as horoscopes and soothsayers.

“A very large number of people still claim to believe in God, to pray, to believe reasonably traditional things about the person of Christ,” said Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali of the Church of England’s diocese of Rochester, “but that does not work out into belonging to a Christian church.”
