Church Leaders More Concerned About Secularism Than Islam

News outlets including The Christian Post and VOA News are reporting on the new Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life survey showing that evangelical leaders are more concerned about the threat of secularism to their faith than they are about Islam. Survey results showed 92 percent of U.S. survey respondents said secularism is currently a threat to evangelical Christianity, while only 81 percent said the same about Islam. Overall, Islam was ranked fourth out of nine major threats shown in the survey, which also included consumerism and sex and violence in popular culture. The survey also showed more than 80 percent of evangelicals think they are losing influence in the U.S. The survey was taken at the Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization last fall among nearly 2,200 evangelical leaders from around the world.
