I knew this, but this Pew survey grieves me as I didn’t realize it was so widespread.
If people keep asking me why we make such a big deal out of the Reformation at the Advent, here’s your answer. Or rather, why we talk about Christ as our only mediator and the Bible as God’s word written. The debate is not in the 16th century – it continues to today. And like then, these things have eternal implications.
And, more depressingly, the misguided are not only mainline Protestants, but growing number of evangelicals are falling prey to the very theology that led to the Reformation in the first place.
