Do you know what you believe and why you believe it? Well, research says that the average atheist knows more about the bible and world religions than the average lay-Christian. The research is astonishing. On the whole, there is a lack of understanding in what it means to be Christian in regards to what Christians believe. Whether you think so or not, there is a correct answer to the question, “What do Christians believe?” We have defining characteristics in the realm of doctrine AND practice. So in a sense, there is a field of play with set boundaries and to step outside those boundaries is to step outside the field of play and consequently, step outside of what is Christian.
