Global survey: Kids doubt God but still put trust in parents
The survey results are on a new website, spiritualstateofthechildren.com, set up in observance of International Youth Day on Wednesday. Taking in 22 nations â€” from Armenia to Mexico to Uganda â€” the website includes photos, videos and documents. OneHope plans to add 38 more nations by 2011.
In Ghana, 91 percent told OneHope that God created the universe, yet 68 percent weren't sure the deity even exists. And in Malawi and Swaziland, nine of 10 students say Jesus is the only way to forgiveness of sins â€” yet only one-third to two-thirds believe Jesus was a historical person....
There is no such thing as Atheists and there is no such thing as a person who does not know God. The problem is not knowing but submitting to His Lordship. Romans 1 says man is without excuse because God is clearly seen because He has made Himself clearly seen. The problem is the Light came in to Darkness and man loved darkness rather than the Light. The Creator came to His creatures and the creatures rejected the Creator and instead worshipped the creation above the Creator. How is it that man will stand in front of God one day to be judged and you say I couldn't know you or see you. God will say what about my creation... You believed in evolution where they said, "nobody + nothing = everything" and you believed that rather than believing, "nothing + God = everything". Are you nuts!!
It does take faith to believe in Jesus as the risen son of God. I do not deny that. However, I am always shocked by the people who don't believe that Jesus existed at all. There is enough evidence from non-Christian historians to prove that Jesus lived and was even crucified, just as the Bible says. It's up to the individual to answer if Jesus is lord, liar, or lunatic, but no one can doubt that he did exist.
