Heartbreaking: Record Few Americans Believe The Bible Is Literal The Word Of God.
Reader, good Thursday morning to you all, I'm praying everyone has a marvelous and wonderful day on today, let's make it do what it do in Jesus Powerful name.
"I had a changed of mind about putting the blog on pause for just now."
More Americans now believe that the Bible is a book of fables and history than those who believe it's the literal Word of God, a Gallup poll released Monday has found. And even fewer than 1/3 of Christians say it's to be taken literally.
"From the mid-1970s through 1984, close to 40% of Americans considered the Bible the literal word of God, but this has been declining ever since, along with a shrinking percentage of self-identified Christians in the U.S. Meanwhile, the percentage defining the Bible as mere stories has doubled, with much of that change occurring in the past three years."
