Aliens or biblical view of Jesus
Aliens or biblical view of Jesus by percentage in America has become heartbreaking. It’s clouded by the fact the pollsters will never ask only about Jesus. But, for aliens and UFOs there are good statistics. Click on the image to the left to get it large enough to read.
For example, 57% believe there are aliens and civilizations on other planets. 45% believe that UFOs exist and have visited Earth. This is all muddied by the understanding of what UFOs are. For example, I believe that UFOs exist and have visited Earth—many of them. But I believe that all of them are most likely demonic manifestations which are preparations for the rule of the anti-christ.
A biblical worldview and accurate knowledge about Jesus has become very rare
For example, 70% of adult Americans claim to be Christian, but less than half claim to have a biblical worldview. If you define the biblical worldview using these markers that Barna provides : “believing that absolute moral truth exists; the Bible is totally accurate in all of the principles it teaches; Satan is considered to be a real being or force, not merely symbolic; a person cannot earn their way into Heaven by trying to be good or do good works; Jesus Christ lived a sinless life on earth; and God is the all-knowing, all-powerful creator of the world who still rules the universe today”, only 17% have that view. That means that under 12% of American adults have a biblical worldview.
But notice, this only means they believe Jesus was sinless. What about questions like: is Jesus God; is Jesus the only way to salvation, and does not believing in Jesus mean you go to Hell? Then the percentages go lower. Basically, true faith in Jesus has become very rare.
Aliens & UFOs or a biblical view of Jesus by percentage in America
Around half, or a little more, believe that alien civilizations in the universe exist and have visited us. In UFOs: God’s Chariots?: Spirituality, Ancient Aliens, and Religious Yearnings in the Age of Extraterrestrials a Lutheran Theology professor writes, “Are UFOs celestial saviors, coming to save Earth from self-destruction? Are UFOnauts advancing human evolution by birthing hybrid children?” There are more that believe this than there are those who believe the truth about Jesus.
Though the fastest growing religious group is the non-religious, the fastest growth among people who identify as religious is probably Wicca, in America. If you were wondering about the increase of signs of the end, wonder no more. The list in 2 Timothy 3: 1-5 has been fulfilled. America may be at the vanguard of this cultural shift. But there is no doubt. These are indeed the “perilous times” to which Paul was referring .
