Pollster George Barna's recent survey of American Christians reported some interesting information.
"Americans are increasingly comfortable picking and choosing what they deem to be helpful and accurate theological views and have become comfortable discarding the rest of the teachings in the Bible," said Barna.
"Growing numbers of people now serve as their own theologian-in-residence," he continued. "One consequence is that Americans are embracing an unpredictable and contradictory body of beliefs."
By a margin of 71 percent to 26 percent adults "noted that they are personally more likely to develop their own set of religious beliefs than to accept a comprehensive set of beliefs taught by a particular church," the report said.
None of this should be surprising to nonbelievers. Christians have decided that despite the Bible's admonitions against eating pork and allowing women to speak in church (to give two examples) they can do it anyway. The only "abomination" some of them care about is homosexuality. Many ignore Bible passages that don't fit into their own comfort zone. We already know they have been picking and choosing what to believe to satisfy their own agendas ---and they have been doing it for many years.
