Theological Test - Question 4

We posted the questions from a recent Ligonier theological test survey, and now we want to answer the questions to see how our readers answered.  We also show the results Ligonier found in their survey.

The fourth question was “Jesus Christ is the only way to eternal life or salvation.”  The right answer is that this is true, so Christians should answer “strongly agree”.

For a Christian, this question is absolutely fundamental.  By that, I mean that one simply cannot call oneself a Christian without accepting this belief.  Amazingly, not all Christians believe this.  Perhaps it’s due to a lack of teaching; or, maybe those who deny this truth are not really Christian.  While we can find this throughout the Bible, Jesus says it best and most clearly in John 14:6, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”

According to Ligonier, the general survey results are shown below.  Note how many people disagree:

Strongly Agree:  74%

Somewhat Agree:  7%

Don’t know:  6%

Somewhat Disagree:  3%

Strongly Disagree:  9%

As expected, Ligonier listeners did much better:

Strongly Agree:  98%

Somewhat Agree:  < 1%

Don’t know:  < 1%

Somewhat Disagree:  < 1 %

Strongly Disagree:  1%

Let us know how you did!
