Yes, if you read the above with sarcasm, well you read correctly. It really is amazing when we spend time outside of our religious bubble and we see how many people view us. This is not made up lines... I have friends that I've spent the majority of my life trying to show them that these Ideas they have of Christians are wrong. Honestly though, i have yet to be successful because many times they're right!
This video is part of a book I've been eying at B&N and Borders. The book is called "Unchristian" and comes from a study by Fermi Project and conducted by The Barna Group. Here's a video about the book:
Some interesting finds and interpretations from a wide variety of Christian contributors from all up and down (and floating around) the spectrum.
some findings to get you interested:
Top six perceptions of Christians:
1. Anti-Homosexual – this is toward the person not the deed – 96%
2. Judgmental – 87%
3. Hypocritical – 81%
5. Politically Motivated
"An important thing to note here is that these perceptions were consistent from both inside and outside the church. 40% of the audience interviewed were from outside the church. Meaning that a big part of where these perceptions are coming from is within the church itself via both conversations and from the pulpit."
THE QUESTION IS: DOES IT MAKE YOU THINK? DOES IT MAKE YOU MAD? DOES IT MAKE YOU WANT TO CHANGE SOMETHING (INDIVIDUAL OR CORPORATE)?
What's your thoughts?
