Study Shows Conflicting Religious Beliefs Among Americans 9/30/16 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

ReligionNews.com reports Lifeway Research has released its 2016 State of American Theology Study and the study has some fascinating results that I believe are a reflection of our growing diverse culture and society. Two-thirds of those polled stated they believe God accepts the worship of religions, not just Christianity and Judaism, but among evangelicals, only 48% believe God accepts all religious worship. Seven in ten Americans believe there is only one true God, expressed as the Christian Trinity. Two-thirds believe Jesus is God, more than half said God created Jesus. Six in ten believe in heaven. If you listened closely to the results, you may question how can so many believe God accepts all worship, but at the same time believe in the Christian Trinity? Well, I believe this belief that seems conflicting among many Americans is a reflection of our post-modern society and the general culture of the day. And you can throw in there some of the watered down preachers that teach a watered down, fortune cookie gospel. Look for the gap between Christian beliefs and what Americans believe to widen in years to come as our country becomes more religiously diverse. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
