U.S. Protestants Are Not Defined by Reformation-Era Controversies 500 Years Later
Five hundred years after the start of the Protestant Reformation, a new Pew Research Center survey finds that U.S. Protestants are not united about – and in some cases, are not even aware of – some of the controversies that were central to the historical schism between Protestantism and Catholicism.

Indeed, half a millennium after fundamental disagreements over the means of salvation and the authority of the Bible (among other topics) sparked a series of bloody wars between Protestants and Catholics in Europe, most American Protestants now say the two Christian traditions are more similar than different, religiously, and many U.S. Protestants espouse traditionally Catholic beliefs on some issues.

For example, nearly half of U.S. Protestants today (46%) say faith alone is needed to attain salvation (a belief held by Protestant reformers in the 16th century, known in Latin as sola fide). But about ...

This news article evidences to the ample, steady Satan's-tare-sowing ongoing now for several decades in the so-called evangelical settings.

To this effect, may God's children heed to the specifics recommended in Jude, of building aright, praying aright, self-protecting aright and preserving aright,

"... beloved,
*building* up yourselves on your most holy faith,
*praying* in the Holy Ghost,
*Keep* yourselves in the love of God,
*looking for the mercy* of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

And of some have compassion, making a difference:
And others save with fear,
pulling them out of the fire;
hating even the garment spotted by the flesh"

Often the work is carried on in man's own strength, yet the genuine building has to be done based in truth, the praying in touch with the Spirit, the keeping/holding relying in all what God has and is, and the progress depending on his sovereign mercies and eternal design.

I would not spend five minutes in a church that didn't have a male pastor (who, incidentally, KNEW that he was a male!), preach and teach the King James Bible, and see people saved and baptized by immersion on a regular basis.
Would to God such churches as this were not so hard to find! I visited a church this morning, only to discover they used a false Bible translation and then showed a clip from "American Idol." I got up and left.

In the Lord's strength, the prayers and searching for a Biblical local assembly will continue.

1) 33% of evangelicals surveyed believe that both faith in God/Christ and good deeds are needed in order to be saved, rejecting sola fide
41% of evangelicals surveyed now believe that the authoritative teaching of scripture must be supplemented by church teaching and church tradition, thereby rejecting the doctrine of sola scriptura
3) 24% of evangelicals surveyed believe in purgatory, that is the place where people go to be cleansed of their sins before they enter heaven.
4) 31% of evangelicals surveyed who attend church weekly do not believe in sola fide and sola scriptura.
5) Only 66% of evangelicals surveyed say that belief in Jesus Christ is key to gaining eternal life. In some schools, that’s a failing grade!
If revival ever takes place in our day it will involve a remnant coming out of today's sorry broad evangelicalism.

Many, if not most, organizations known as "churches" today are at best mere social clubs and at worst breeding grounds for every form of anti-scriptural liberalism. I would not spend five minutes in a church that didn't have a male pastor (who, incidentally, KNEW that he was a male!), preach and teach the King James Bible, and see people saved and baptized by immersion on a regular basis. Life too short to throw it away in one of these outfits where the preaching is fluffy, the congregation is scruffy, and those who are rebuked get huffy.

@Christians, We are to be doing the Lord's work, not being a lazy soldier of Christ and seeking vanities of this vile wilderness. Obey God lest thou become a member of the church of Corinth.

@professing Christians, the devils know the gospel than thou dost and fear God more than thou, you are a dead, blind and ignorant child of the Appolyon.

@The pope, Thou art a clever swindler of truth, a devil clothed as an angel of light, and the Romanish Nimrod, I shall call thee "A man of flies" dost thou know what this meanest?

@Joel Osteen, Thou art the minister of Satan, and devoid of humanity, the antichrist will no doubt seek your counsel.

@John Calvin, thou hast a sweet beard brother Calvin

Apparently there's only a remnant of Christians left in this country, who knows that those that don't believe in the five Solas, q.v., (What are the “five solas,” and what do they mean?) or if they believe that works has anything to do with salvation, q.v., (Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses)-- they are not Christians and are condemned to hell
