The irony is that our culture could not be more obsessed with sex yet we’re being out-reproduced by what we would consider a far more prudish society.
John Burger is reporting that the number of adherents of Islam may overtake the number of Christians worldwide by the year 2100. You can be all hippie and multicultural about it. But folks, this is bad news.
“Around the world, each Muslim woman has an average of 3.1 children, compared with 2.3 for all other groups combined,” said the report, “Muslims and Islam: Key findings in the U.S. and around the world.”
Muslims are also the youngest (median age of 23 years old in 2010) of all major religious groups, seven years younger than the median age of non-Muslims. As a result, a larger share of Muslims already are, or will soon be, at the point in their lives when they begin having children. This, combined with high fertility rates, will fuel Muslim population growth.
The study estimates that by mid-century, Muslims will have increased across the world by 73 percent over numbers in 2010. Christians are projected to grow only by 35 percent during the same time period.
There are many who would cheer this. They are either called Muslims or fools.
But there are many many fools in Western culture who believe Christianity to be a scourge. And they will side with any enemy of Christianity, even Islam, in order to eradicate it. And when the sword is turned on them, I pray that they will understand.
There are two things that Western Christians can do to prevent this. They can evangelize or have babies – neither of which seem to be the fashion nowadays.
