    Christianity not the Default religion

    Barna group released the results of a survey recently in which it found the Christianity is no longer considered the default religion within the United States.

    The survey shows half of Americans believe the Christian faith no longer has a lock on people’s hearts. Overall, 50% of the adults interviewed agreed that Christianity is no longer the faith that Americans automatically accept as their personal faith
    Two-thirds of evangelical Christians (64%) and three out of every five Hispanics (60%) embraced that position
    By a three to one margin (71% to 26%) adults noted that they are personally more likely to develop their own set of religious beliefs than to accept a comprehensive set of beliefs taught by a particular church
    Evidence of people’s willingness to part with church teaching was shown in other data from the survey regarding what people believe. Among individuals who describe themselves as Christian, for instance, close to half believe that Satan does not exist, one-third contend that Jesus sinned while He was on earth, two-fifths say they do not have a responsibility to share the Christian faith with others, and one-quarter dismiss the idea that the Bible is accurate in all of the principles it teaches.
    Interesting turn of events.

    It is my firm belief that it is a mistake to hold firm beliefs.

    Re: Christianity not the Default religion

    No religion is the "default" religion. If you are born and raised without religion, you will not spontaneously believe in the literal death and resurrection of Jesus Christ! It has to be taught - some might say brainwashed - early in life.
