Adults in the US—including evangelicals—are moving away from orthodox understandings of God and his Word year after year.
We took a look at this year’s State of Theology survey… 1/5
More than half—56 percent—of evangelical respondents affirmed that “God accepts the worship of all religions, including Christianity, Judaism and Islam.” 2/5
And 62 percent of evangelical respondents said that everyone is born innocent in the eyes of God. 3/5
But while evangelicals were found to be moving away from orthodox beliefs about God, they’ve grown more assured in their stances on cultural & ethical issues.
For example: 91 percent believe abortion is a sin, the highest level since the survey began. 4/5

Our pastor said something similar last Sunday.
“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”
“We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of hetero-normative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).”
Finding out who might cause cognitive dissonance for some people. Come back tomorrow for the answer and why I can’t support the organization.
