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.

  1. Lifeway Research [Baptist] survey indicate that 50% of Americans are willing to talk about Christianity. The Bible tells us to “preach Christ” not preach the Church of Christ. After baptism they learn about The church of Christ assemblies. The church of Christ in America is in apostasy and dying. The congregation where I have worshiped since 1975 had 2000 members and 300 baptism and now 1125 and 40 baptisms.

  2. CHRIST WAS VERY SPECIFIC IN HOW HE WANTED MAN TO WORSHIP HIM…THE NEW TESTAMENT IS THE LAW FOR THIS AGE..NOT THE OLD LAW AND MUCH IS BEING DOWN BASED ON WHAT SOME DID DURING THE OLD LAW…CHRIST WOULD NOT APPROVE AT ALL…CHECK OUT MATTHEW 15:8-9…READ THE ENTIRE CONTEXT…THE BOOK OF ACTS GIVES THE TRUE PLAN OF SALVATION AND WHAT THEY DID IN THE 1ST CENTURY TO OBEY CHRIST…AND WE HAVE CLEAR EXAMPLES OF HOW THEY WORSHIPPED AND ON WHAT DAY THEY ASSEMBLED TO REMEMBER CHRIST DEATH, BURIAL AND RESURRECTION .
