In surveys conducted by LifeWay Research and the Pew Forum:
26% of adults attending a Protestant church agree or strongly agree that “If a person is sincerely seeking God, he or she can obtain eternal life through religions other than Christianity.”
Now I wonder why?
Then I read a little further and found where the above named resource went on to say,
29% do not believe the Bible is to be taken literally.
Well, if you don’t take the bible literally then you will end up with perverted beliefs like thosewho think eternal life is found in other religions.
Now I am asking why these 29% don’t take the bible literally.
So I read a little further and came across this stat.
12% do not believe the Bible is God’s Word.
There you go. Destroy the foundation and everything else will crumble on top of it.
What we have in our nation is a “Foundational Fracture.”
The very foundation of belief in the Bible as Holy, Inerrant, Infallible [without error}, Trust-worthy and on we could go is challenged by skepticism and it’s demonic partners then fractures will result.
We are supposed to let the Holy Bible ‘challenge;’ us and not us challenging the Holy Bible. The Creator is the author and the creation receives what comes from the author. Not vice versa.
Until next time,
