Evangelicals: Children, Education and the Poor are Not Priorities

According to the latest survey from the Barna Group, evangelicals in America do not consider children, education and poor people as priorities ... while non-evangelical Americans consider these three issues as the most important issues facing America over the next decade.

The top priorities for evangelicals? The health of Christian churches, "upgrading the state of marriage and families," and improving spiritual conditions in America.

Jesus himself taught that his followers are to care for children and the poor. Are evangelicals too consumed with themselves to the point of being unable to see the needs of people around them? Are non-Christians in America more in tune with Jesus' worldview than are many Christians?

I'm with you on this.

As an evangelical, I think that a lot of us have sold out to the Church of Republicanism rather than the Church of Jesus.

I wrote more about my take on it here:
