Norway to the future
Sunday, April 04, 2004
A minority of Norwegians consider themselves christian (.no). For the first time, more people have answered 'no' to the question whether they - from their own definition of the word - consider themselves christian. 49% say no, 47% yes.
At the same time, however, there is an increase in the number of people who believe that the ressurection of the Christ was a real event. Religion-sociologist Pål Repstad sees a trend that people are converting from christianity to other forms of belief, showing that Norwegians are not becoming less spitirual, but are (my words) shopping for new ways to find their meaning of life.
