Brits’ Top Response to Theology Questions? ‘Don’t Know’
A third of people in the United Kingdom say they don’t know whether the Resurrection actually occurred, whether God counts a person righteous based on faith alone, or whether trust in Jesus alone leads to salvation.

In Ligonier Ministries’ first-ever State of Theology survey conducted in the UK, “I don’t know” was the top response to numerous questions about Jesus, sin, the Bible, salvation, and other rudimentary theological concepts. (CT has covered the US version of the survey in 2014, 2016, and 2018.)

Many Brits remain ambivalent on matters of faith. About a third were unsure about the nature of the Trinity (31%), Jesus’ bodily resurrection (33%), the existence of hell (30%), and Jesus’ return (31%). Even more, 36 percent, said they didn’t know whether to agree or disagree with the statement, “God counts a person as righteous not because of one’s own works but only because of one’s faith in ...

Not surprised at all. The amount of mainstream apostasy going on in the so called "Christian" churches there in the UK is amazing, and saddening.

Chris GP,

Sounds to me like Westminster Chapel and the Metropolitan Tabernacle. The former had Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones and the latter Dr Peter Masters.

Unless I'm mistaken, in which case, pardon me.

Here we have two contrasts. The first is much more common. A famous church on London with a renowned evangelical preacher and Bible teacher in the 1960’s and early 1970’s, under his successor began to embrace new worship, new Bible, and watered down, though still evangelical teaching. Today this famous chapel is now a full blown charismatic, social gospel type church with a veneer of thin semi-biblical teaching.

Very rarely, it does occasionally go the other way. An equally famous church, pastored by a tremendous Reformed preacher, in the late 19th century, had declined by the 1960’s and 1970’s, had joined the ecumenical denomination the famous pastor had left, and though fairly conservative in worship was dying on its feet. They called a young but very committed Evangelical to the pastorate, who followed his famous predecessor out of the denominational Union, and now that church is packed to the gills every Sunday, proclaiming biblical truth without compromise, and evangelising thousands of children in its many Sunday schools.

Yes, it seems like the church in the UK is not doing the basic job of teaching correct doctrine. Or have the people thrown up their hands when confronted with Muslims holding different beliefs, atheists with theirs, Hindus with theirs. I think there already was a certain respect for gypsies, even a superstition about them, if the TV comedies I see on PBS are any indication.
I think the Supreme Value today is Get Along, or Teamwork. But when you throw in a guy like 'Wally' from the Dilbert comic strip, you wonder if teamwork is best. Firing him would be best, and then working back from there to fire all those who do not want to work.

Christianity is dying in the UK with churches made up of older people and I recently walked into a Waterstones in my home town with anti Christian books that are numerous and then we have in our churches selling out to the ecumenical movement and bill Johnson bethal movement
It is so hard as was in Christianity going to be like in the UK in the next 20 years.

John MacArthur wrote:
I expressed the fact that we should desire virtue and we should desire integrity, and we should desire honesty and morality. And those things do express God's will and God's law. Certainly every way and at every opportunity I support a biblical morality, what Christian could do less? It is our responsibility to address sin, to confront sin, to call it what it is, to expose it and to attack it. What preacher, what Christian could do less?

....It's not about whether we're against immorality, of course we're against immorality. It's about what do we view as the solution, that's the issue. Of course we would desire true and lasting virtue to characterize people. Of course we would desire righteousness rather than unrighteousness. But the issue is...how do we get there?

For many in Christian profession today, in politics, in media, lobbying, public intimidation have become the means....

Jim, it’s obvious that John MacArthur and you either haven’t read or do not believe the Bible. God blesses nations that do right, and curses the ones that do wrong. You are an agent of Satan, Mr. L.

By far the majority of people in the UK would not even understand the question, let alone give a satisfactory answer. Or was the survey made amongst those who professed Christianity?

The important part of the article:

"Evangelicals were defined as people who strongly agreed with the following four statements:

• The Bible is the highest authority for what I believe.

• It is very important for me personally to encourage non-Christians to trust Jesus Christ as their Savior.

• Jesus Christ’s death on the cross is the only sacrifice that could remove the penalty of my sin.

• Only those who trust in Jesus Christ alone as their Savior receive God’s free gift of eternal salvation."

John MacArthur wrote:
... There are people who think that if America becomes moral, God will bless America. There are people who think if America [Britain] becomes moral and religious, then God will doubly bless America [Britain] . So, let's put God back in the public discourse, let's put prayer back in the schools, let's put the Ten Commandments up on the wall in public places, in courtrooms. Let's stop abortion. Let's stop rampant homosexuality. Let's stop pornography, etc. And if we can just bring about some kind of morality, and better yet, some kind of commitment to God, then we will be blessed.

Well let me make a very clear point at the outset here. Morality and religion will not invite or secure the blessing of God. They never have and they never will. A more moral America [Britain], a more moral and religious America [Britain] does not advance in divine favor one inch.... [ ]
