Prophecy Sign: Increasing Godlessness
People want the benefits of "church" but without the prickly notion of sin or even the concept of a God of judgement. Thus the atheist church, (which seems an oxymoron), is born. A form of godliness but denying the existence of the power of God.
If you take a look at the motto of the atheist church, that motto could fit very nicely into the new progressive Christianity, seeker friendly, prosperity/purpose driven, life-apps preaching, let's not offend/tolerance is king, church model that is sweeping across much of Western Christendom.
People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God-- having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. 2 Timothy 3:2-5 NIV
"Atheist Church" Expands to Double Its Size with Congregations Around the World

life. Our motto: live better, help often, wonder more. Our mission: to help

in every town, city and village that wants one.” Atheist Church
