According to a survey just released by Rasmussen, a majority of Americans believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and came to Earth to die for our sins.
According to Rasmussen:
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 72% of American Adults believe Jesus Christ was the Son of God who came to Earth to die for our sins. Seventeen percent (17%) don’t believe that to be true.
The exact questions asked in the survey were, “Do you believe that Jesus Christ was the Son of God who came to earth to die for our sins?” and “Do you believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead?”
The survey, conducted by telephone and with 1,000 subjects, has a margin of error of 3% with a 95% level of confidence.
According to a similar Pew Research Center survey, 70.6% of respondents to that survey identify as Christian, with 25.4% identifying as “Evangelical Protestant,” 20.8% identifying as Catholic, and 14.7% identifying as “Mainline Protestant,” with other religious Christian-based faiths representing the remainder.
This Easter, billions of Christians will celebrate the rising of Jesus Christ for the sins of the world. According to 2021 surveys, 2.545 billion Christians exist worldwide.
