*Half of Americans who call themselves “Christian” don’t believe Satan exists and fully one-third are confident that Jesus sinned while on Earth, according to a new Barna Group poll. *

*Another 40 percent say they do not have a responsibility to share their Christian faith with others, and 25 percent “dismiss the idea that the Bible is accurate in all of the principles it teaches,” the organization reports. *

*Pollster George Barna said the results have huge implications. *

*“Americans are increasingly comfortable picking and choosing what they deem to be helpful and accurate theological views and have become comfortable discarding the rest of the teachings in the Bible,” he said. *

I can’t stand the “cafeteria” Christians that pick & choose whatever makes them feel fuzzy & warm inside & don’t know the teachings nor study them enough.

Satan must be doing backflips.The road to perdition is getting wider.:eek:
