Do we live by Scripture or assumptions?

Yesterday, I found this posting on Christianity Today.  It is a blog entry, What Churchgoers Believe about Life after Death and Other Doctrines.[i]  I found this article interesting in that 25% of Christians surveyed believe that “a person who is ‘sincerely seeking God… can obtain eternal life through religions other than Christianity,” yet 82% believe the Bible is the “written word of God and is totally accurate in all that it teaches.”  This is just another example of how people do not have a clear understanding of their worldview.  While some profess to be a Christian, and thereby most likely think they are following a Biblical worldview, they still cling to ideas that are not supported by this view.   I suppose we could attribute this to people being unfamiliar with Scripture.  If that is the case, then this shows how much we need to be in God’s Word and not live by our assumptions alone.
