Fruit Doesn’t Lie
The Barna Group has released stats from a two-year study on “no-faith adults” (atheists and agnostics) and “active-faith adults” with some interesting findings. While there are, of course, differences between the groups, the study also revealed several commonalities.
David Kinnaman, president of The Barna Group, stated, “Ironically, however, both atheists and committed Christians share one unusual area of common ground: concern about superficial, inert forms of Christianity in America. There are nearly 130 million American adults who describe themselves as Christians, but who are Christian in name only; their behavior includes little related to experiencing and expressing their alleged faith in Christ.”
This reminds me of something Jesus said. “You will know them by their fruits.” (Matt 7:16)
