Keeping the Faith


What do you discover when you make phone calls to 35,000 neighbors?

A newly-released survey – the U.S. Religious Landscape Study – finds that 77% of American adults identify with a faith group.

Good news.

Findings by the Pew Research Center confirm that 2/3 of religiously affiliated adults would also say that their faith is “very important” to them.

Good news.

The same percentage – again, 2/3 – of the “religiously affiliated” also pray on a daily basis.

Good news.

Even in worship attendance among that same group, we’re holding our own. About 6-in-10 engage regularly in corporate worship.

Good news.

One more finding: Half of all Americans who call themselves Christians believe that other religions (outside of Christianity and Christ) can lead to eternal life.

Bad news.

As a matter of fact, that’s such bad news that it actually calls into question all the “good news.”

Apparently we’ve now discovered that non-Christian faiths can save.

Has anyone told Jesus?

John 14:6.
