After writing about John 14:6 yesterday, I found it interesting that this morning the following tweet appeared on my timeline stating –
The survey asked for a agree or disagree to a number of statements including this –
” Jesus was a great teacher, but he was not God.” How can it be that 43 percent of the people we may attend church with each weekend fail to believe this foundational Truth?
You can read through the whole list of statements here.

“The 2022 State of Theology survey reveals that Americans increasingly reject the divine origin and complete accuracy of the Bible. With no enduring plumb line of absolute truth to conform to, U.S. adults are also increasingly holding to unbiblical worldviews related to human sexuality. In the evangelical sphere, doctrines including the deity and exclusivity of Jesus Christ, as well as the inspiration and authority of the Bible, are increasingly being rejected. While positive trends are present, including evangelicals’ views on abortion and sex outside of marriage, an inconsistent biblical ethic is also evident, with more evangelicals embracing a secular worldview in the areas of homosexuality and gender identity.”TheStateofTheology.com
