christianity-poll(BNc) — Eighty-one percent of Americans say Jesus would disapprove of what the ISideWith.com website called “modern Christianity”, if he were to suddenly return today.

The ongoing poll had, at post time, 3,617 responses.

The poll website is designed to allow a person to compare his responses to those given by people in the major political parties.

While the reasons given for Jesus’ disapproval would certainly vary and at times contradict, the poll would seem to indicate that an appeal to return to the Bible in order to restore the faith that the Lord established might be a welcome message today.

Christians who follow the New Testament as their pattern in faith and service, therefore, can be encouraged in their efforts to proclaim the Christ who has revealed how to be approved of God.
