Together with the rise of Islam is the falling away (apostasy) from Biblical Christianity, which is in decline and gradually being marginalised and pushed from the public domain. The falling away is a necessary precursor to the revealing of the "Man of Sin" (Antichrist):

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God." (2 Thessalonians 2:3&4)
