It is good to hear that we are still a “Christian Country”, and of course, our “British Values” are based on Christianity.
But our values have got a bit wishy-washy with Society’s drift into relativism/secularism; “tolerance” seems to be the most valued one, which is good, but not as good as “love of neighbour”. If we don’t become more active in our Christianity, it is likely that the more vigorous Muslim Faith will fill the vacuum with their values. Those who rarely go to Church would do well to read one of the four Gospels in the New Testament occasionally. “Mark”, for example, can be read in little more than an hour, and would remind us of the values that Jesus Christ taught us.
