The Soon Coming Judgment Of God Upon America and How To Escape It 48
85 percent of Americans say there is no such thing as absolute moral truth. George Barna,
Jr., says: When people are looking at scripture, it's another book that they can pull off the
shelf and get some helpful ideas from.
When asked if they believed in all 10 of the Ten Commandments, only 13% of Americans
said yes. That means 87% of Americans dont believe in all ten of the commandments. 89%
of Americans surveyed thought that it wasnt sinful to violate one of Gods Ten
Even when given the opportunity to throw out the Commandments they didnt like,
incredibly, only 40% of Americans believed in 5 of the Ten Commandments.
Americans see nothing wrong with sin. In fact they believe God is a liar. Americans approve
of the following sins in the proportions shown:
Fornication (sex before marriage)42%.
Homosexuality or Lesbianism30%.
Having an abortion45%.
The majority of Americans (54%) no longer believe in salvation by faith in Jesus Christ but
instead believe that they can earn their salvation. This equally applies to born-again
Christians, 33% of which hold the same belief.
One survey found that nearly 80% of the
members of four protestant denominations believed that salvation can be earned. Peter Jones
writes in his book Capturing The Pagan Mind: Only 21 percent of Americas Lutherans, 20
percent of Episcopalians, 18 percent of Methodists and 22 percent or Presbyterians affirm the
basic Protestant tenet: salvation by grace, not by good works.
Sixty-one percent of Americans agree that the Holy Spirit is a symbol of Gods presence or
power but is not a living entity.
A Barna Research survey found that 26% of born-again believers don't believe it matters
what religion you belong to our practice.
Sociologist W.C. Roof found even worse results.
He says, nearly half of Americas most conservative born-again Christians said all religions
were equally true.
Forty-two percent (42%) of Americans believe Jesus was a sinner, and 39% don't believe that
he rose from the dead. Astoundingly, 35% of born-again Christians don't believe Jesus rose
from the dead.
Gods Commandments Will Never Pass Away
Jesus said, If you love me, keep my commandments (John 14:15). John wrote: He
that saith, I know him (Jesus Christ), and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth
is not in him. (1 John 2:4) In Revelation 14 John describes how those who accept the mark of
the beast and worship his image shall have God's wrath poured out upon them and how they shall
experience eternal punishment. Contrasted with this are God's faithful: Here is the patience of
the saints: here are
they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
Paul stated that if you want to be justified, you must be a keeper of Gods commandments;
he writes ...as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of
the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. (Romans 2:12-13) Paul is
