New research from LifeWay shows churchgoers are more apt to accept universalistic views than their pastors.
Ed Stetzer reported on his LifeWay Research blog that "84 percent of Protestant pastors disagree that eternal life can be obtained through religions other than Christianity." However, when their congregants were asked the same question, only 48 percent disagreed with that statement and 9 percent disagreed somewhat.
The research will be featured along with the release of an upcoming book, Transformational Discipleship by Eric Geiger, Michael Kelly and Philip Nation.
