Many Christians are 'practical universalists,' says son of Luis Palau
Many Christians in the United States are “practical universalists” who believe that many if not all religions will lead a person to Heaven, according to the son of famed evangelist Luis Palau.

Kevin Palau, president and CEO of the Luis Palau Association, was interviewed on a recent episode of the Dallas Theological Seminary podcast “The Table” about a Barna Group report indicating that half of Millennial-aged Christians think it is wrong to evangelize.

Amen, Wayfarer! And those stats were likely from churches that actually preached the Gospel back then. Many had gone to something more watered down before they slipped away altogether.

What is more troubling is watching the kids from actual Christian families who have gone astray "into a far country." Lots has already been said about this aspect already. Praying for your son. I know it must pain you every day.

I would quote Willian Graham the first, but will have to duck the wrath of .. “ I say that tonight, that no less than 65 percent of people sitting in any church pew on any given Sunday, are not saved “- Billy Graham, 1965.
And we’re upset about millennials, their grandparents were probably not saved , and they went to church every Sunday. Their parents were probably not saved and stopped going to church in the late 1980’s. And we’re upset about millennials?
Run to your the mirror and ask,” When is the last time I shared Christ , and didn’t say, join my church instead.?”

Rom 9:27 Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:"

The word "remnant" in Greek can mean also - 'few'

Matt 20:16 teaches -- " many be called but few chosen"

So it really is a matter of knowing the Word of God.

The problem is that many church goers are nominal Christians and simply do not know the truth by faith.

God wrote the Bible.

A good article which proves what I have been saying for a long time---most people who warm a pew on Sunday mornings have very little knowledge of what makes their particular 'place of worship' different from the other ones down the street.
Of course, whenever we read an article that says things like '..most Christians in the US..' we have to remember they are including Catholics in their purview, since it is the largest church in the USA.
With that said, I can easily see how they do not have biblical beliefs. They don't focus on the sermon (or homily) of the priest, but on the ceremony.
As for Protestants, the liberal variety are preaching against President Trump, blaming him for all evils like meat-eating, plastic straw and plastic bag using, sea level rise, hurricanes slowing down, and the neighbor's cat up the tree.
The 'evangelical' ones might be able to tell you more about which dispensation we are living in, who are the 144,000 elect, and other details of the last book of the Bible--it is the sole book of the Bible that the most books have been written.
So it is no wonder that few preachers will touch 1 Timothy 5, with its clear directions for the older Christian woman. First, she is a widow, since even today, women outlive men. Families should take care of their widow

Many Christians in the United States are “practical universalists” who believe that many if not all religions will lead a person to Heaven, according to the son of famed evangelist Luis Palau.

The above is from the article.

Here is what pluralism really means. If someone says that faith in Christ is essential for their individual salvation but not necessarily for someone else’s then they have logically said it wasn’t essential for them, but was simply a matter of personal choice. The world has told us to think this way in all spiritual matters. So it is not uncommon for someone to apply a moral standard to their own lives, but not to the lives of others.

That is moral hypocrisy of the highest order and simply deludes the lost into reducing God’s moral standards and requirements to personal choices, and if a personal choice then they can’t be binding on anyone. This personal choice fallacy is one of the characteristics that separate the true church of Christ from all others. Pluralism is simply spiritual polygamy. There are lots of worthy husbands and Christ just happens to be the one I chose. But, I’ll sleep with whomever I want!
