What's So Great About Christianity







For hundreds of years Sweden was a bastion of Lutheranism, a major Protestant branch. Since the 1960's the Swedes have moved away from the religion of their ancestors toward agnosticism and atheism. At present, stats reveal that only a minority of Swedes are still practicing Christians. In spite of their high  level of unbelief, Swedish crime rates have been relatively low for decades. The country has moved toward socialism and has created a social safety net like few others. For decades Sweden has been used by secularists as evidence that human beings can create a decent society without God and religion.  What      unbelievers were not acknowledging was the fact that much of the good in Sweden was in part the result of Christian cultural values having been preserved, even though God was being set aside. But over the years those values have been eroding and a culture of selfishness and hopelessness has taken their place. Sweden is now slowly moving toward a nightmarish future. They are sowing the wind and they will reap the whirlwind like the rest of the world. The following are portions of news article from a Swedish newspaper one can read on the Internet named, The Local. A quick perusal of recent Swedish societal trends, as shown by the following articles, clearly indicate that secular Sweden is no longer Heaven on earth. Unfortunately, the worst consequences  of setting  Christianity aside are yet to come. \

Say a Little Prayer for Sweden

Published: 11 Aug 06 17:40 CET

"Christianity in Sweden has a long history, but you won't find many Swedes in the pews on a Sunday.

Quite simply, the majority of Swedes don’t think the big man exists. That’s according to a European 

Commission report from 2005 which states just 23 percent of Swedes believe there is a God. "

Casual sex 'common' among Stockholm youth

Published: 27 May 11

Four out of ten young people in Stockholm last had sex with someone they weren't in a relationship with

and only one in four used a condom, according to statistics from a recent study on youth sex habits in

Sweden. A total of 3,317 young people in Stockholm answered questions in the survey, which was part of a

larger study mapping out the sexual habits of the country’s 15- to 29- year olds. But despite temporary

liaisons being so frequent, only one in four young Stockholmers stated that they had used a condom, a

number slightly lower than for the rest of the country.

Swedish teen girls 'getting more violent

Published: 11 May 11

Violence among Swedish teenage girls is on the rise, new statistics show, having increased by

about 50 percent since 1994.

Currently, Swedish teen girls between 15- and 17-years old account for nearly one in five assault

cases in which charges are filed, the Metro newspaper reports.

According to statistics from the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention

(Brottsförebyggande rådet – Brå), the figure represents about a 50 percent increase since 1994,

when the figure was 12 percent.

Swedish bestiality ring exposed

Published: 11 Nov 08

A Swedish newspaper has exposed a network of self-proclaimed zoophiles who meet regularly in

locations around the country to have sex with animals. The group, consisting of an estimated thirty

people, is headed by a 45-year-old father of two, Expressen reports.

During the time spent with members of the network, Expressen learned that the group regularly

brought along a range of different animals to "sex meetings" at rented premises.

There, members of the group filmed their sexual encounters and distributed them to other animal sex



Ban sex with animals

Published: 19 Oct 07

A Liberal Party member of parliament has called for Sweden to ban sex with animals. Having witnessed

an upsurge in the popularity of bestiality in recent years, Jan Ertsborn is urging legislators to

criminalize the practice.

The politician's arguments tally with those of the Swedish Animal Welfare Agency, which spoke out in

favour of a ban on human sexual relations with animal earlier this year. Sweden is one of a number of

countries in which bestiality is legal.

"What most people think of is the classic image of cows in a shed. But having spoken to a number of

veterinarians, I know that it is smaller animals such as dogs and cats that are most at risk," Ertsborn

told The Local.

More Swedish children dependent on benefits

Published: 25 Nov 10

The number of Swedish children living in families that depend on long-term financial benefits has

increased by around 10,000 in just over four years to about 54,000 children, government agency

figures show.

Sveriges Radio's Ekot news bulletin reported on Thursday that it was the fifth consecutive year that

the proportion of children in families dependent on what were formerly known as social benefits

according to statistics it compiled from the National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen).

The proportion of children living in families on long-term financial assistance has increased gradually

since 2006, with long-term defined by the board as families on social assistance for 10 to 12 months

out of the year.

Often, these families also struggle with substance abuse, mental illness or crime, making these

children particularly vulnerable, the report said.

Three Gun Crimes a Day in Sweden

Published: 6 Sep 05 09:51 CET

"Firearms are used in murders, attempted murders or robberies three times a day in Sweden,

according to statistics from the National Police Board.

In 2004, police registered 1,187 such crimes involving guns, a similar figure to the previous two

years, reported Göteborgs-Posten. But the difference is that the kind of weapon has changed.

"Before, there were a lot of shotguns - now it's all automatic weapons," said Per-Olof Johansson,

a detective in the Gothenburg police reconnaissance division.

"In the last five years we've also confiscated a lot of hand grenades."


Gun smuggling on the rise in Sweden: police

Published: 25 May 11

Firearms are becoming more readily available in Sweden with smuggling increasingly difficult to control,

according to the police.

While only 12 weapons have been seized by Swedish customs to date this year, the problem is far more

extensive with a large number of unrecorded cases, according to a report by Sveriges Radio (SR).

"We are talking about the post, containers, rail goods, trucks and commercial vessels. There is a huge flow.

There are many channels and we are not even close to being able to control everything," said Lars

Bäckström at the Swedish customs to SR.

Swedish cities, primarily
Gothenburg and Malmö, have been the scene of several shootings in recent months.

Witnesses to a shooting in a Malmö car park on May 11th described the killing as an "execution" in what

was apparently a hit with links to organized crime, an increasing problem in both cities.

Young Swedish Women Kill Themselves More Often

Published: 4 Oct 07 11:11 CET

"The suicide rate among young women in Sweden is at its highest level since the late 1970s. Researchers

say the figures are a sign that young people's mental health is not taken seriously enough.

The number of suicides among women in this age group was about 8 per 100,000 in 2006, compared to

about 3 per 100,000 in 2002. "


Health Fears for Swedish Youth

Published: 7 Mar 06 08:25 CET

"The rise continued throughout 2003 and 2004, according to the board, which concluded that it is

primarily young people who are affected by the increasing access to alcohol.

At the same time, more children and young people are overweight. There has also been a rise in

attempted suicides among young men and women, reported the board."


Criminal Gangs Show no Signs of Leaving Sweden

Published: 12 Mar 09 14:34 CET

"Police say it is difficult to estimate the number and size of criminal gangs in Sweden since membership

can vary from day to day, but media reports indicate around 1,000 people are actively involved in at least

six large criminal gangs with numerous branches across the country.

Gangs make headlines almost daily with stories of drug busts, brutal attacks on business owners unable

to pay off debts, and bloody gang wars.

"This is a serious problem that has grown in recent years," Swedish Justice Minister
Beatrice Ask told AFP.


Swedish Women Committing More Violent Crimes

Published: 2 Oct 08 08:54 CET

"Criminality among women in Sweden is rising faster than among men, according to a new study.

Fresh statistics from the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brottsförebyggande rådet –

Brå) show that in 2007, women were suspected for more than 10 percent of threats or violent crimes.

Sweden's Cocaine Use on the Up

Published: 20 Jan 08 13:53 CET

One Million Swedes on Benefit

Published: 27 Aug 04 12:10 CET

"Over a million Swedes of working age are living on state handouts, according to figures released on

Monday. While that's roughly the same as last year, there has been a significant shift in who is receiving

those benefits, with the fastest-rising group of claimants being 25-35 year olds taking early retirement.

"This shows that the Social Democrats are choking people with kindness," said the Moderate Party's

Per Westerberg, a former Minister of Commerce.

As Monday's Dagens Nyheter pointed out, the figures mean that 20% of Swedes who could be working

are instead claiming unemployment, sickness, social security or early retirement benefit. And it's the

number of people in this last group - more than ever before - that worries Westerberg most."


Abortion Increase Blamed on Declining Use of Pill

Published: 24 Aug 08 14:04 CET

young people, according to a new report.

In its latest report on Sweden’s public health, the National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen)

warns that psychological problems are increasing among young people and women.

The number of suicide attempts by young people in Sweden has risen dramatically, the agency reports,

and more and more youths are being admitted to hospitals for treatment of depression and anxiety.

Violence is also an increasing problem in Swedish society, the agency reports, with roughly one in ten

residents having been subject to some sort of violence, threat, or harassment in 2006."
