…………I read this article and took the test. I’m no Bible scholar but I couldn’t believe how easy the questions were. Honestly, the results of this survey do not surprise me. From highly educated “theologians” to those who never crack a book seeking God, our nation is, in my opinion, in the worst spiritual state ever. Basic Bible truths are being manipulated and carelessly tossed aside in favor of man’s opinion. When atheists know more about spiritual things than Christians, we are in desperate trouble.
One stat that is telling: only 45% could name the 4 gospels.

Survey: Americans don’t know much about religion
A new survey of Americans’ knowledge of religion found that atheists, agnostics, Jews and Mormons outperformed Protestants and Roman Catholics in answering questions about major religions, while many respondents could not correctly give the most basic tenets of their own faiths.
Forty-five percent of Roman Catholics who participated in the study didn’t know that, according to church teaching, the bread and wine used in Holy Communion is not just a symbol, but becomes the body and blood of Christ.
More than half of Protestants could not identify Martin Luther as the person who inspired the Protestant Reformation.
