“Death is assumed to be the end of life,” lamented Dr. George Carey, the archbishop. British people look to medicine for eternal life rather than religion, he said, and have abandoned the Christian teaching of eternal life. People are living as if “doctors can cure all ills and even postpone death forever.”

The archbishop connects the trend with a general loss of morality in an increasingly secularized society. He called for clerics and laypeople to restore “authentic” Christianity to Britain.

What lies at the heart of the problem? According to the Scriptures, the clergy is responsible for the loss of true religion. In the words of the Creator: “Her priests have violated my law and profaned my holy things; they have not distinguished between the holy and unholy, nor have they made known the difference between the clean and the unclean; and they have hidden their eyes from My Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them” (Ezekiel 22:26 Ezekiel 22:26Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned my holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they showed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.

; see also Ezekiel 44:23-24 Ezekiel 44:23-24 [23] And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean. [24] And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all my assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths.

This stunning indictment applies to the whole of the Western world, not just the British Isles. (Source: The Daily Telegraph [London].)
