1 in 3 'Christians' says 'Jesus sinned'

It looks like the American Church is doing a great job teaching their people!

Half of Americans who call themselves "Christian" don't believe Satan exists and fully one-third are confident that Jesus sinned while on Earth, according to a new Barna Group poll.
Another 40 percent say they do not have a responsibility to share their Christian faith with others, and 25 percent "dismiss the idea that the Bible is accurate in all of the principles it teaches," the organization reports.

Pollster George Barna said the results have huge implications.
"Americans are increasingly comfortable picking and choosing what they deem to be helpful and accurate theological views and have become comfortable discarding the rest of the teachings in the Bible," he said.

Growing numbers of people now serve as their own theologian-in-residence," he continued. "One consequence is that Americans are embracing an unpredictable and contradictory body of beliefs."

IF these "Christians" say Jesus sinned then they have no salvation, there are still without a perfect sacrifice... they better start looking, quick

Or worse, 1 in 3 Christians have read all of their Bible, but don't understand or believe all of it.

So are they Christians?

while you don't have to have read and or understand all of scripture in order to be a born again believer, I would question someone's belief system when if they knew they were depraved and in need of salvation from a God who cannot and will not accept sin and claim that their way of salvation sinned.

I believe "1 in 3" are not Chrisitans. After all, Ozzy Osborne say's he was a Christian when he was biting heads off of bats.
