Labels are both easy and comfortable. Christian, Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, born again. It isn’t hard for a man or woman to call himself or herself a Christian, even a born again Christian. But do they really know what that entails?
Two recent surveys shed light on just how far from Biblical beliefs those who identity as Christians actually are.
The most recent survey was conducted across the United States by the American Culture and Faith Institute (ACFI) and included 3,000 adult respondents.
Rather than allowing the survey participants to self-identify, an important distinction from other studies, an initial question as to what would happen to them after they die was paired with a set of ten options. The response to this key question began the process of belief classification.
