People are turning back from this apostate body towards true evangelical, biblical Christianity.

I hope so. After all, we shouldn`t give up our faith. Faith in God, of course, not the corrupt Church.

Of course, not only cover-up acts and moral corruption play a role here in reversing the tide. Also, the current alliance of the Church and the ruling rightists affects certain attitudes in youngsters who react allergically to both.

Well said.

Poland is Christian to the core. Faith will certainly survive here. As for the roman-catholic religious institution... well, they will get exactly what they deserve.

Yes, but in what proportion? Like in France or Great Britain? That would be a pity coz faith certainly helps people get along in life and deal with its everyday worries.

Yet, the top clergy of the Polish Church don`t care about it - they do their best to follow this old rule: After us, the flood!

Most turn to nothing . They may still believe in god but rarely do they join different denominations

It is funny how a confirmed atheist as you are so zealously supports religion.

Not only do I support it but actively participate in all the events and the rituals for the benefit of my family.

In fact, I made sure my kids went the whole cycle. The only things I reject with extreme prejudice and will never accept under any conditions are "miracles" and the "supernatural". I don't need those to accept the Ten Commandments, for example. What Jesus allegedly said and did should be very acceptable to every atheist with two working brain cells.

The only thing that keeps society decent are the moral values that were instilled in us by the religious teachings, not the fear of police as there are never enough of them.

Today, the last place for a kid to learn right from wrong are public schools where everything is relative, and nothing is absolute. At least here.

I see.
So your earlier assertions (I remember a few of them) of being an atheist were just a bluff??? :):)

My atheism does not mean fighting religion. It means not accepting the parts that violate laws of physics or anything where believing is required. All else is fine.

E.g, you don`t accept the part about Jesus` resurrection.

I see you treat religion in a purely instrumental way as a means of controlling the society. That`s what our local ruling class does.

I don't control anybody and anything. I just am.

as a means of controlling the society.

The same way some organized religions use it to control their flock.
Instill mortal mans doctrine in them mixed with God's teachings.
That's why I stick to the pure word of the Bible and ignore the man made up traditional doctrines that instill guilt and fear for the churches benefit to have control over it's congregation.
