Greg talks about a recent study that shows only 6% of American adults have a biblical worldview, then he answers questions about whether God is a puppet master and if it’s hypocritical to buy products from companies that promote things you disagree with but then not give money to the Salvation Army because they promote CRT.
0:00 American Christians display extreme theological illiteracy.
16:10 If God’s all-powerful, do we really have free will?
35:06 Am I a hypocrite if I buy products from companies that promote things you disagree with, but stop giving to the non-profits that do the same?
NOTE: The article Greg read on the show incorrectly stated that 6% of American adults who identify as Christians have a biblical worldview. The correct stat is 6% of all American adults (9% of American adults who identify as Christian) have a biblical worldview, while 69% of Americans self-identify as “Christian.”
