Cultural Perceptions

Think Christian has a fantastic post courtesey UnChristian about how the 16 - 29 culture views Christianity. This is a collection of responses from both Christians and non christians (who made up the lsmaller amount of respondents 40%) interestingly these were their top 6 perceptions of Christians:

1. Anti-Homosexual – this is toward the person not the deed – 96%
2. Judgmental – 87%
3. Hypocritical – 81%
4. Sheltered
5. Politically Motivated
6. Insecure

This survey was done in America. I would say based on my interactions with NZ youth and young adults I would probably go something like this

1. Apathetic
2. All like members of Destiny
3. Hypocritical
4. Sheltered
5. Unawareness of the world

I'm still debating the other one .

Anyway for those of you who like video, Unchristian have even made a very good clip which i do reccommend you watch. Especially if you disagree with me when I say that NZ christians are apathetic - hey you may even want to post a response below!

    Ignorant, complacent... Bad at debating logically without having to resort to censorship.

    Its amazing more people haven't posted. Kinda does go with what you have said about being apathetic!

    Anyway, sheltered. I would have to agree on. There are far too many Christians who are sheltered, who have been bought up in all christian househoulds and have never ventured out of that. Or christians on becoming christians who loose touch with all of their non christian friends.
