If on some Sundays it seems like you’re preaching to a congregation of atheists and agnostics, this may explain some things: A recent Harris Interactive poll found more Americans believe in ghosts than in the inerrancy of God’s Word. Although a minority of American adults believes in ghosts (44 percent), UFOs (36 percent) and reincarnation (24 percent), only 37 percent believe that all the books of the Bible are indeed the Word of God. On the other hand, an overwhelming 71 percent of Americans believe in angels. And among the general population, only 40 percent of people believe in creationism, compared to the 47 percent that believes in Darwin’s theory of evolution. [harrisinteractive.com, 12/10/08]
