民意調查顯示,52% 的美國人不認為耶穌是上帝,只是好教師

Drifting Away from Scripture: 30 Percent of Evangelicals Say Jesus Was Not God, Poll Shows

Michael Foust 邁克爾 · 福斯特  2020 2020年8月27日,星期四 | ChristianHeadlines.com Contributor | Thursday, August 27, 

A majority of Americans and nearly a third of evangelicals say Jesus was a “good teacher” but was not God, according to a new survey for Ligonier Ministries that was conducted by LifeWay Research.

生命之道研究所(LifeWay Research)為國際基督教門徒組織( Ligonier Ministries )進行的一項新調查顯示,大多數美國人和近三分之一的福音派信徒認為耶穌僅是“好老師” ,但他不是上帝。(與自由派基督徒主張相似)

All total, 52 percent of Americans say they believe Jesus was a “good teacher, but he was not God,” according to the survey. Although the poll’s finding about the general population may not be shocking, Ligonier said it is surprising that nearly a third of evangelicals (30 percent) affirm the statement and believe Jesus was a good teacher and nothing more. Sixty-six percent of evangelicals disagree with the statement.

根據調查,總共有52%的美國人說他們相信耶穌是一個“好老師,但他不是上帝”。儘管民意調查對普通民眾的調查結果可能並不令人震驚,但 Ligonier 表示,近三分之一的福音派信徒(30%)肯定了這一說法,並相信耶穌僅是一位好老師而已。66% 的福音派信徒不同意這種說法。

“The confusion illustrated in these results suggests a dire need for Christians to be taught Christology, the doctrine of the person and work of Jesus Christ,” Ligonier said in a news release.

利戈尼爾在一次新聞發佈會上說: “這些結果表明,基督徒迫切需要接受基督論的教導,這是關於耶穌基督的個人和工作的教義。”。

The question was part of Ligonier’s biennial State of Theology survey.

這個問題是 Ligonier 兩年一度的神學調查的一部分。

Meanwhile, 65 percent of evangelicals believe “Jesus is the first and greatest being created by God” – a statement that conflicts with the Bible.

與此同時,65%的福音派信徒相信“耶穌是上帝創造的第一位也是最偉大的人”——但這一說法與《聖經》相悖。

Christ’s deity and eternality are taught in such passages as John 1:1, John 8:58, Romans 9:5 and Hebrews 1:1-4.

基督的神性和永恆性在約翰福音1:1,約翰福音8:58,羅馬書9:5和希伯來書1:1-4中被教導。

“Statistics like these from the State of Theology survey can give us quite a shock, but they also shed light on the concerns that many American Christians and churches have expressed for decades,” said Stephen Nichols, chief academic officer of Ligonier Ministries and president of Reformation Bible College. “As the culture around us increasingly abandons its moral compass, professing evangelicals are sadly drifting away from Gods absolute standard in Scripture. Its clear that the church does not have the luxury of idly standing by. This is a time for Christians to study Scripture diligently, engage confidently with people in our culture, and witness fearlessly to the identity and saving work of Jesus Christ in the gospel.”

“這些來自神學狀態調查的統計數據可能會讓我們大吃一驚,但它們也揭示了許多美國基督徒和教會數十年來所表達的擔憂,”利戈尼爾神學院(Ligonier Ministries)首席學官、宗教改革聖經學院(Reformation Bible College)院長斯蒂芬 · 尼科爾斯(Stephen Nichols)說。“隨著我們周圍的文化越來越多地拋棄它的道德導向,自認是福音派信徒正可悲地遠離上帝在聖經中的絕對指向。很明顯,教會不可能袖手旁觀。這是基督徒需努力學習聖經,有自信去與我們文化中的人交往,無畏地見證耶穌基督在福音中的身份和拯救工作的時候。”

To help Christians understand and better articulate the Bible’s teachings about Jesus, Ligonier has formulated the “Ligonier Statement on Christology,” available at ChristologyStatement.com.

為了幫助基督徒理解和更好地表達聖經關於耶穌的教導,Ligonier 制定了“基督論的 Ligonier 陳述” ,可在 christologystatement.com。

LifeWay defined “evangelicals” as those who strongly agree with four statements:

LifeWay 將“福音派”定義為那些強烈同意以下四種說法的人:

“The Bible is the highest authority for what I believe.”

“基督教聖經是我信仰的最高權威。”

“It is very important for me personally to encourage non-Christians to trust Jesus Christ as their Savior.”

“鼓勵非基督徒相信耶穌基督是他們的救主,這對我個人來說非常重要。”

“Jesus Christs death on the cross is the only sacrifice that could remove the penalty of my sin.”

“耶穌基督在十字架上的死亡是唯一可以免除我罪惡懲罰的祭品。”

 “Only those who trust in Jesus Christ alone as their Savior receive Gods free gift of eternal salvation.”

“只有那些單單相信耶穌基督作為他們救主的人,才能得到上帝的免費禮物——永恆的救恩。”

The full results from the survey will be released Sept. 8 at TheStateofTheology.com. The survey was based on interviews in March with 3,002 U.S. adults.

調查的完整結果將於9月8日在 thestateoftheology.com 公佈。這項調查是基於3月份對3002名美國成年人的採訪。
