60% of born again Christians in USA ages of 18-39 believe that Buddha, Muhammad are all valid paths to salvation

Don't know how you can be born again and not believe in the Holy Spirit or believe that Jesus sinned.

Whatever the case, the US and other countries are now in the perfect spiritual state to be duped by the Anti-Christ and satan's end time plans.

60% of adults under 40 say Jesus isn’t only way to salvation; equal to Buddha, Muhammad

Survey shows pluralistic worldview expanding rapidly among American Christians

More than 60% of born again Christians in America between the ages of 18 and 39 believe that Buddha, Muhammad and Jesus are all valid paths to salvation and over 30% say they either believe that Jesus sinned just like other people when He lived on Earth or aren’t sure, according to a new study.

There’s a “striking decline” in evangelical religious beliefs and practices over the last 10 years, as the number of self-proclaimed believers to hold these beliefs has increased by nearly 25%, says Probe Ministries in a statement announcing the results of its Religious Views & Practices Survey.

The study, which interviewed 3,100 Americans ages 18 to 55 in 2020 and looked at various other previous studies, saw a drop in “basic biblical worldview” — God’s attributes, the accuracy of the Bible, salvation and Jesus being sinless — from 47% in 2010 to 25% in 2020 among born again Christians.

Stu, the question is, are these people who self-identify as born-again Christians actually born again? Many of them MIGHT be, but have skewed / unBiblical theological understandings. And people of such views will infect non-Christians to believing this is what the Bible teaches or that they have nothing to worry about. Course, if one accepts false beliefs from other faiths - even if they are authentically a Christian, will thus be vulnerable to other lies from them as well.

As for "satan's end time plans" - well, the End time plans are GOD'S plans - Satan has zero control over how those events will go down, although he has immense influence in snaring them in whatever sin. Satan and his demonic followers already know their fate - and it's long been fixed and always known by God! As Christians, while we certainly need to be constantly aware of the snares of the Adversary, our focus should be on the positives and overcoming God will bring His people. The only way people will be refused salvation is if they reject God / Christ. And people buy into the delusions and deceptions they WANT to - they aren't merely cast upon them.

Yes, my questions is, if you believe that Jesus is not the only way to heaven and that He sinned while on earth, you surely cannot truly be born again.

No, satan will have his time, the tribulation, and then towards the end God will dish out His wrath.
Yes, God is judging the earth but things like the mark of the beast is not God's plan.

60% of Americans who identify as “born again”, don’t know what it means to be born again.

Yes that is what I am trying to get across.

The statistics could well be true, BUT the article should have said that they are Christians who "identify" as being born again.

Many churches today (especially the big ones) are dead spiritually and don't teach salvation or the scary bits in the Bible. You need to teach the whole Bible and none of this sugar-coated nonsense either. Jesus is the only way to heaven and IS the Son of God. End of story. Hell is a real place and you go there if you are not born again. The devil is also real and will do anything he can to remove you from a relationship with Jesus, whether that means killing you, tricking you, troubling you or incapacitating you.
