Evanjellycals are confused about the gospel!

whi_logoI was listening to a White Horse Inn podcast in my car on the way to work this morning. The producer of the show went to a Christian book expo to do a survey amongst those who supposedly sell Christian books because they want to expand our knowledge of the Bible.

Based on their answers, it is very clear that evanjellycals are very confused about the gospel they are supposed to believe! In fact, some of the answers are quite shocking! To think that these people are selling books to Christians, about a Bible that they ostensibly do not know themselves!

In the survey, people had to specify whether they agreed with statements made by the interviewer. Here are two statements and their results:

There is no one who does good, no not even one. There is no one who seeks God.
47% Agree
49%  Disagree
4%  Unsure
* This is a basic summary of Ps. 14: 2-3, and Ps. 53:2-3, which Paul restates in Rom 3:10-12.

Jesus was fully divine and only appeared in human form.
52%  Disagree
4%  Unsure
* This is an example of an early church heresy known as docetism.  Jesus was both fully divine and fully human: 
Rom 1:3-4, 2John 7.
