This was related to "Christianity in decline." Actually,
the subsequent related posts touched on the relevant issues

countries but faltering or even dying in Europe and North

Actually, the major point of this list is the relationship between
"truth outside the Bible" (science) and the Bible. I relate
better to Christians who say "All truth is God's truth."
After all, science has forced major reinterpretations of
"God's Biblical truth." Some Christians (Spong comes to mind)
even claim Biblical moral truth is in need of reinterpretation.
