Recently a survey was conducted among evangelical churches to review the belief of people in the context of Biblical theology. The findings are, let’s just say, interesting.
Many self-professing evangelicals reject foundational evangelical beliefs. The survey results reveal that the biblical worldview of professing evangelicals is fragmenting. Though American evangelicalism arose in the twentieth century around strongly held theological convictions, many of today’s self-identified evangelicals no longer hold those beliefs.
Lifeway & Ligonier Ministries Survey
Only 24% of American’s agree that Jesus said this… “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. ” (John 14:6). Think about that, 64% of professing Christians say that Jesus is not the only way, not the only truth, not the only life giver; think about it!
And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day.
Note: Ironically, Lifeway actually contributes to the ongoing misinformation about orthodox theology. Just by visiting their bookshop webpage today you can observe that the majority of their texts fail to discuss the Biblical Gospel of Jesus Christ as we the church are commissioned by Jesus Christ himself to do. Instead we have “scorecards” for congregations and multi-site church/satellite; viral “church” man based ideals, time, relationships, money. If Lifeway is ready to be repentent, perhaps start with culling the heretical and start publishing actual Biblical based writers, there are plenty out there but are often/always ignored.
