Online Christian Journal: England: 21% of Christians do not believe that Jesus is the only way of salvation
11% of English Christians do not believe that Jesus is the only path that leads to salvation. It is revealed in a survey sponsored by Ligonier Ministries, an organization of followers founded by the American theologian R.C. Sproul. This study questioned the evangelicals on fundamental questions of faith such as the Trinity, the Bible, and evangelism. The results show that 64% of Christians believe that God answers the prayers addressed by other religious groups. Also, a little less than half of the survey participants said firmly opposed to the following statement: “even the smallest Sin deserves eternal condemnation.
Responsible of Ligonier Ministries, Stephen Nicols reflects his misunderstanding with the results of the survey in a radio interview conducted by first: “it’s tragic when you read the survey and see so many people say ‘I don’t know.'” While these are questions of life or eternal death. There may be issues larger than this survey. “These answers are really disturbing.”
For one who is also president of the Reformation Bible College in Florida, these evasive answers are the consequence of “the influence of our culture and pluralism of our time.” But beyond the controversial results of the survey, Stephen Nicols wants to encourage churches to evangelize around them and teach biblical truths.
