What do people believe about the birth of Christ? A few days ago Newsweek Magazine conducted a poll asking some questions about Christ and His birth.* Here are some of the results:

67% - believe that the entire story of Christmas is historically accurate

24% - believe the story of Christmas is a theological invention

If Jesus had never born, people believed there would be:

63% - less charity

61% - less kindness

59% - less personal happiness

58% - less tolerance

47% - more war (16% say less, 26% say the same)

38% - less religious divisions (21% say more, 26% say the same)

Maybe you think "everyone in my church believes the right things". Well, maybe, but maybe not. Hopefully you are reaching people who believe the wrong things too.
