Although Christianity is on the rise in countries such as China where Christians face intense persecution, research shows it is on decline in other countries, such as the UK.

According to a study conducted by The Benedict XVI Center for Religion and Society, undertaken by St. Mary’s University in Twickenham, for every one person who converts to Christianity in the UK, 26 believers abandon their faith and becomes an atheist or agnostic.

“For every one person brought up with No religion who has become a Christian, twenty-six people brought up as Christians now identify as Nones,” the study found.

“It is no secret that a large proportion of the British population consider themselves to have no religion,” wrote Stephen Bullivant, professor of Theology and the Sociology of Religion and director of the Benedict XVI Centre for Religion and Society at St. Mary’s University.
