Belief in God is evident among Americans. One survey found that:
- 53% know God exists and they have no doubts.
- 18% believe in God but harbor some doubts.
- 4% believe in God sometimes.
Another poll found that more than 63 percent of Americans identify as Christian. You would think that, with such a large majority professing belief in God, and nearly as many claiming faith in Christ, the ethical and moral standards of Americans would be higher. Unfortunately, that is not the case. If 63 percent of us claim to be Christian, where are our ethics and morality?
The problem is not with what people believe; the problem is that too many of us do not live what we claim to believe. We display a large disconnect between our belief system and our conduct. In the Book of James, we are pointed to a better way.
