Europe Endless

Geopolitical analyst Jack Wheeler believes Pope Benedict XVI will strive to "re-Christianize Europe by making the way for greater religious freedom on the continent and then converting millions of the Muslims who now populate the area."

I believe he may be right. Christianity in Europe is almost dead. Yet, the Bible predicts Europe will again become a superpower, believe it or not. See Iron and Clay, Europe and America in Prophecy and "United States of Europe" When?.

"It takes both heroic optimism and heroic faith to attempt a revival of Europe now at death's door," he writes. "For many astute observers, Europe is doomed by a 'perfect storm' of inescapably negative demographics, welfare-state bankruptcy and the creeping seizure of its cities by Muslim immigrants. Yet the cause of all three is Europeans' willful abandonment of their cultural souls. Restore that to them and all three of the clouds creating this perfect storm start to clear.

"Such restoration can only be done with and cannot be done without Christianity - and not some wishy-washy, apologize-for-the-Crusades, can't-we-all-get-along, multicultural-diversity-transgendered theological goulash, but a straight-talk, look-you-in-the-eye Christianity of muscular moral certainty with no excuses and no apologies."

The problems Europe has been having with Muslim immigrants may be the catalyst to enable this "Christian restoration". I can see this happening, it would not surprise me one bit.

It seems all but inevitable that Europe will become Eurabia with a majority Muslim population in most metropolitan areas within a generation.

"There are only two ways to prevent this: eviction or conversion. Either evict those illegal Muslim immigrants out of Europe and back to their country of origin - or convert them to Christianity. Benedict XVI will advocate the latter path. The obstacle in this path is that Islamic law or Sharia views apostasy or irtidad as a crime punishable by death. The murtadd or apostate, by 'turning his back on Allah' deserves to be killed."

Wheeler says Benedict XVI will publicly demand that Muslims be free of any punishment should they choose to convert to Christianity, citing Article 18 of the U.N.'s Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

I don't know if Pope Benedict will be the one to accomplish this or perhaps just start it, but it will happen - sooner or later.
