In a recent survey, it was revealed that nearly 70% of allegedly born-again Christians say other religions can lead to Heaven.
Among those surveyed, only 20% strongly disagreed that Muhammad, Buddha, and Jesus all taught valid ways to God. Of an estimated 176 million American adults who identify as Christian, just 6% or 15 million of them were actually found to hold a biblical worldview.
Are we really surprised? Most of the modern evangelical teaching centers around the success of the individual, rather the redemption from sin. Too many sermons point to a person’s happiness as the sole reason that Jesus Christ came to the world. One would think that Christ is more of a self-help Yoga-teaching guru who awakens the great spirit residing in all of us. If this is the Jesus presented, there’s no reason to wonder why so many refuse to believe in His exclusivity.
When the axioms of the world become the axioms of the church - and not the other way around - the Gospel becomes obfuscated. Secular teachings creep slowly into pastors messages, causing more confusion and leaving most Christians weaponless in the war against Satan.
We need better, more theologically sound preaching based on the scriptures. We require better, more theologically sound worship music, based on the scriptures. These are true and will certainly assist in delivering the Gospel effectively. The Church cannot neglect the old-fashioned principle of personal responsibility. Personal prayer, personal evangelism, and getting to know Christ better through the scriptures will right this disturbing trend. It’s time to dust off that bible.
