Christians cite different high-priority concerns than the American population at large, but the economy, recession and related worries carry near unanimous top-drawer concerns for everyone.
This was finding of the latest survey data published by The Barna Group, a long-standing Christian polling organization.
When asked about the nation’s biggest challenges of the day, evangelicals listed government corruption, national security and lowering taxes as priorities at much higher levels than the population at large. Meanwhile, Protestants more often than no0t drew their attention to corruption, security and spending. Catholics were focused more solely on the recession and the economy in general.
That focus on money matters was apparent in the survey as whopping 98 percent of survey respondents identified the economy or closely related issues as the largest hurdles facing the country.
