In responding to the Survey:Americans don't know much about religion" "But atheists actually know more than Protestants and Catholics, Pew Forum finds..." on 9/28/2010
How much do we know the PEW FORUM and how much the designers of PEW FORUM survey know about religion, esp. Christianity?
How much do they know the definitions of "RELIGION" per American English Dictionaries, from Webster to Dictionary.com?
How does one's practice in terms of "religion" in terms of "knowing of religion, such as Christianity"?
They need to know not just the definitions but also practices in terms of religions; and which kind of religions?
They do not even know how many religions on this planet earth; and, they just slash down and target to Christianity by just one survey of religion.
The religion is going to depend upon one's faith, in which that faith according to Christianity, it is a gift or a fruit of Holy Spirit. And, Christians can not control or buy or earn or inherit or trade to get the faith in terms of Christianity, a religion; and, the faith is a gift directly given by God.
Christians' God is ABBA Father God, Christ Jesus the Lord, and Holy Spirit; trinity. " God is Spriit" (John 4:24). Christians' God is infinite. How do Athiests know more about "Christianity",religion... Religion is not about academic studying, like one takes political science class. Religion is really what one believe in one's mind, in one's heart, and in one's soul. It is just Moses's very First Commandment. How are about how much Athiests really understand that very first commandment? It is not even about knowing religion according to the Word of God. It is about what one's belief, a simple belief like a child.
And, the survey about knowing about religion in term of Christianity is so ignorant and naive. The ABBA Father God is infinite that there will be no one on this planet earth knowing all about HIM. The survey just asked some group of people with some questions and to make that statements and published on line and that is very irresponsible and unjust.
Whoever designed that survey need to do serious researches and to open the WORD of God Daily before they qualify themselves to design "a religious survey" against a specific group/ belief, such as Christianity.
In the WORD OF GOD, it says, "whoever has ears to hear, let him/her to hear." The designers of PEW Survery need to find out where you can find this verse in the Word of God, and see if HOLY SPIRIT may give you understanding to understand what this speicific verse tells you.
Enjoy God's presence.
