via New Study: Shrinking Number of Americans Believe the Birth of Jesus Based on Historical Events | CBN News

As some conservative commentators continue to call the public’s attention to “the war on the celebration of Christmas in the U.S.,” now comes word that fewer Americans believe that the New Testament account of the birth of Jesus is depicted based on actual events.

A new Pew Research Center survey says there has been a noticeable decline in the percentage of U.S. adults who say they believe the biblical elements of the Christmas story were actual historical events. The four elements they cite found in Scripture say Jesus was born to a virgin, that the wise men were guided by a star and brought gifts for baby Jesus, that Jesus’ birth was heralded by an angel of the Lord and that Jesus was laid in a manger as an infant.
