1 in 3 ‘Christians’ say Jesus sinned!

One of the most encouraging passages in the New Testament is found in Hebrews 5:7-9,

 

“Who in the days of his flesh, having offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and having been heard for his godly fear, though he was a Son, yet learned obedience by the things which he suffered; and having been made perfect, he became unto all them that obey him the author of eternal salvation;”

 

It is encouraging because it reveals that Jesus, while living in the flesh, was not divinely helped in any way to overcome temptation, but that with prayers, supplications, strong crying and tears He overcame during His human existence.

 

Why then would any ‘Christian’ believe that Jesus sinned? The reason is obvious, because they have never personally paid the price He paid to overcome temptation. He was willing to pay whatever it took to resist sin and become the source of eternal life for us.

 

Jesus sinned? Blasphemy!

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.”

The results are a dramatic departure from the nation’s foundings, when leaders held prayer meetings in the halls of Congress and attributed to Almighty God the victory in the Revolutionary War.

Barna noted the millions of people who describe themselves as Christian and believe Jesus sinned, or those who say they will experience eternal salvation because they confessed their sins and accepted Christ as their savior, “but also believe that a person can do enough good works to earn eternal salvation.”
