Skip to comments.The positive benefits of a Christian society!
Posted on 02/22/2021 9:57:08 AM PST by Teleios Research
Teleios conducted a survey of 565 evangelicals. Respondents noted advantages to living in a Christian society, compared to any other type of society (41%) and compared only to a secular society (18%). The top 3 potential advantages of a Christian society were: a stronger moral (82%) and ethical base (71%) as well as greater love among people (75%). The top 3 advantages of a Christian society in relation to government were: recognizing the primary biblical role of government to keep order in society (60%); maintaining individual rights, especially freedom of religion and expression (56%); and reducing corruption (54%). Participants believed most often Christians could help maintain a balance between preserving freedom and avoiding religious despotism by assuring that the church and individuals are teaching the word of God (60%). IN SUMMARY, a Christian society instills many superior benefits amongst relationships and in government compared to secular society.

Too bad we live in a post-Christian society.
I would have greatly preferred had they talked about a Judeo-Christian society instead. Because every advantage mentioned in the excerpt also holds for a Judeo-Christian society.
And it almost goes without saying that Christians and Jews have a special connection.
What is the point of such a survey? Were you expecting to discover a survey of Christians saying that Christianity is bad for society??
How is “moral” different from “ethical”? Philosophers for centuries have used the two terms interchangeably.
