Americans may be skeptical about the claims of politicians, but they remain confident that some of the most amazing stories in the Bible can be taken at face value. A new nationwide survey conducted by The Barna Group shows that six well-known Bible stories are accepted as literal truth by an average of two out of three adults.
Survey respondents were asked if they thought a specific story in the Bible was â€œliterally true, meaning it happened exactly as described in the Bibleâ€ or whether they thought the story was “meant to illustrate a principle but is not to be taken literally.” Six renowned Bible stories were then offered to adults for their consideration.
And the six stories:
- Jesus rises from the dead.
- Daniel and the lion den.
- Moses parts the Red Sea.
- David and Goliath.
- Peter’s attempt at walking on water.
- God creates the universe in six days.
I beleive five of the six literally.
