Quiz examines how consistently Christians are living out the teachings of Jesus Christ


No surprise here…

quote:

An online quiz started a year ago that examines how consistently Christians are living out the teachings of Jesus Christ has found an increase in the number of believers who are “Christians in name only.”

“The results are disturbing, as 1 in 3 self-proclaimed Christians admit they rarely live the teachings of Jesus Christ,” said R. Brad White, the founder of Changing the Face of Christianity, which created the test.

The nonprofit Christian education organization released last week the results of the anonymous self-assessment test, which asked Christians how they would act in real-life dilemmas and sought to determine whether respondents were “Far from Christ,” a “Worldly Christian,” a “Good Christian,” or a “Spiritually Mature Christian.” Started in 2011, the results initially indicated that one in four scored as “Worldly Christians,” or “Christians in name only” as the organization describes them, but now, the latest results show that the number has risen from 23.7 percent to 30.9 – or almost 1 in 3 who are now “Worldly Christians.” More at CPost

  1. I would think that is a good sign? At least it is for me and it strengthens my confidence that I have no confidence in myself, my flesh, this world or the devils among whom we all live!

    Just as I read both the Law and the Gospel I become worse and worse, more and more totally depraved seeing the Law is Holy, Righteous and Good becoming that schoolmaster that brings me to Christ as my Living Hope! The Gospel is only as Good as Jesus’ ability to keep me from myself, this world and the devils.

    I am monergistic not synergistic.

    I believe these words of Peter are apropos?

    1Pe 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
    1Pe 1:4 to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you,
    1Pe 1:5 who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
    1Pe 1:6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials,
    1Pe 1:7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith–more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire–may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

    • Michael, you’re right. We should have no confidence in anything or anyone but the Lord.

      What’s not surprising as a result of this quiz, are the number of people who believe they are indeed Christians but who’s actions say otherwise. Believe they referred to them as ‘Christians in name only’. When i read something like this it takes me back to before coming to Christ and being born again, for like many of these folks i too wrongly believed i was a Christian.

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
