As you look at how your neighbors and
friends, can you tell -- based on how they live -- who is a Christian?
The following information comes from
Non-evangelical born-again Christians
get divorced (33%) at the same rate as those identifying themselves as
not being born again (34% get divorced).
People live together before marriage at the
all American's 33%
Gambling: 23% of Christians buy a lottery
ticket weekly. 27% of non-Christians buy a lottery ticket weekly.
The occult: 36% of Christians read their
horoscope daily and 36% of Americans read their horoscope daily.
Salvation: 53% of American's believe that
everyone will go to heaven.
The Trinity: 73% of Catholics and 52% of
born-again Christians deny the existence of the Holy Spirit.
American's think, if you are an American, you
are a Christian.
Since 85% of American's claim to be Christian
(of the remaining 15%, 8% are atheist and 7% are other religions such as
Jewish, Buddhist and Muslim), you could say that you there is no
difference between Americans in general and American Christians because
they are essential the same group. When you are talking about an American,
you are talking about a Christian. The problem is that Christians are
called to live differently than non-Christians, and research shows that
American Christians do not act like Christians.
