Put Christ Back in the Pulpit

This explains the sorry state of Christianity in the U.S. today:

In a recent survey of Protestant pastors conducted by the Barna Research Group, only half (51%) passed the test on whether they possess a biblical worldview. Of the pastors surveyed, Southern Baptists scored the highest with 71% while United Methodists finished at the bottom with just 27%. In between were 57% of pastors of Baptist churches (other than Southern Baptist), 51% of pastors of non-denominational Protestant churches, 44% of pastors of charismatic or Pentecostal churches, 35% of pastors of black churches, and 28% of pastors of leading mainline denominations.

Another interesting fact unearthed by the Barna survey:

The pastors least likely to have a biblical worldview were seminary graduates.

Hmm.

The results of the Barna report can be found here.
