A Wake-up Call

Church doesn't think like Jesus: Survey shows only 9% of Christians have biblical worldview

If that headline causes distress, this detail from the article is alarming:

Among Catholics, less than one-half of 1 percent had a biblical worldview.

A "biblical worldview" was defined as belief in six principles basic to the Christian faith:

1. Christ lived a sinless life.
2. God is the all-powerful and all-knowing Creator of the universe and He still rules it today.
3. Salvation is a gift from God and cannot be earned.
4. Satan is real.
5. A Christian has a responsibility to share their faith in Christ with other people.
6. The Bible is accurate in all of its teachings.
