63% of Biden voters reject that God is ‘all powerful,’ ‘perfect and just’ creator: survey

A new post-election survey reveals that a majority of those who voted for President Joe Biden don’t believe “God is the all-powerful, all-knowing, perfect and just creator” who rules over everything in Heaven and Earth today.

The Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University released the fourth in-depth report about its 2020 Post-Election Survey last week. The survey was conducted between Nov. 4 and 16, 2020.  The latest installment of the survey focuses on the views of Biden’s voters as compared to the views of Americans who voted for former President Donald Trump as well as voters and adults as a whole.

More votes were counted in the 2020 presidential election than any other in U.S. history. Former Vice President Joe Biden got over 81 million votes, the most votes for any presidential candidate, to President Trump’s 74 million, the second-most votes in an election. Their totals also broke the record of votes cast for former President Barack Obama, who received 69.5 million votes in 2008.

Biden voters make up a plurality of those surveyed by the Cultural Research Center, accounting for 426 of the 1,000 respondents. Measured at 387, Trump voters were slightly less represented in the sample.

While 65% of Biden voters describe themselves as Christian, most (56%) said they see themselves as “spiritual but not religious” and 57% said they were not “deeply committed to practicing” their religion. Additionally, most of the Biden voters held views that were at odds with the teachings of Christianity.

For example, 68% of Biden voters believe that “The Holy Spirit is not a living entity but is a symbol of God’s presence, power, or purity.”

Sixty-three percent of Biden voters rejected the notion that “God is the all-powerful, all-knowing, perfect and just creator of the universe who rules that universe today” and 72% said that they believe that “a person who is generally good, or does enough good things for others, will earn a place in Heaven.”

Only 30% agreed that the Bible “is the actual or inspired Word of God and contains no errors.”

Seventy-five percent of Biden’s voters cite something other than the Bible as their most trusted source of moral guidance. Most Biden voters who fit into this category identified their feelings, experiences, friends and family as their sources of moral guidance.

Americans less enthusiastic about socialism after 2020 election: survey

 

A new survey reveals that Americans have soured on socialism following the 2020 presidential election.

The Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University released a report Wednesday concluding that “America’s thirst for socialism has plummeted.” The report is part of the 2020 Post-Election Survey of 1,000 adults nationwide conducted between Nov. 4 and 16, 2020. As part of the survey, voters were asked whether they preferred socialism or capitalism.

“Transitioning from socialism to capitalism would be a major, life-changing choice that will have dramatic consequences and far-reaching impacts on the health and well-being of our country and its people,” said George Barna, director of Research at the Cultural Research Center. “Yet, because they are inadequately educated on these matters, many people are easily swayed by superficial, tangential, or emotional arguments.”

“It is clear that today Americans are suffering from a deficit of insight into the details of governance and national economics,” he added. “It is in the best interests of the nation and its future to help people of all ages better understand the meaning and long-term implications of socialism before substantial systemic changes are made.”

According to the survey, support for socialism among all respondents dropped from 41% to 32% since the Cultural Research Center last asked Americans for their views about socialism in 2018. Standing at 12%, support for socialism was lowest among those identified as “integrated disciples” with a biblical worldview and Spiritually Active Governance Engaged Conservative Christians (SAGE Cons.). Seventeen percent of integrated disciples supported socialism in 2018, along with 18% of Sage Cons.

Among born-again Christians, described as “adults who believe they will go to Heaven after they die only because they have confessed their sins and accepted Jesus Christ as their savior,” support for socialism stood at 32% in 2020 compared to 35% in 2018. Thirty percent of self-identified Christians preferred socialism to capitalism, a decrease from the 39% who said so in 2018.

Support for socialism also declined among spiritual skeptics, described as “people who say they do not know, do not believe or don’t care if God exists,” from 47% to 35%. All age groups saw a drop in support for socialism, including those younger than 30, where the preference for socialism or capitalism dropped from 48% to 43% from 2018 to 2020.

The support for socialism dropped significantly among Americans between the ages of 30 and 49. Just 34% of people in that age group supported socialism compared to 49% two years earlier.

Only two groups saw support for socialism increase in the past two years: Non-Christians and political liberals. In 2018, 38% of non-Christians said they preferred socialism to capitalism. That number rose to 44% in 2020.

Among political liberals, who have always been the group most supportive of socialism, support increased from 53% to 54%. Throughout three recent surveys by the Cultural Research Center asking Americans for their views of socialism, political liberals were the only group to express majority support for socialism.

Those who supported socialism indicated strong support for “reducing racial discrimination through legal means” (62%), universal healthcare (59%), restoring financial solvency to Medicare and Social Security (55%), redistributing wealth (52%), and implementing stricter environmental regulations (50%).

Additionally, those who sympathized with socialism had divergent religious views from their capitalist counterparts. Specifically, 61% of socialism supporters believed that the Bible was ambiguous on abortion compared to 46% of capitalism supporters who said the same.

While the Democrats, who are seen as more sympathetic to socialism, gained control of the federal government following the 2020 election, concerns about socialism did manifest themselves in the election results.

According to the report, “While Biden was ultimately declared the victor, the survey data show that it was not because of his determination to advance socialism as much as the fact that he was not Donald Trump.”

Republicans, who have worked to portray Democrats as proponents of socialism, ended up winning 11 seats in the House of Representatives, with one race still undecided, despite the fact that most predictions showed the party losing seats. Republicans performed very well in areas with high Latino populations, such as Doral, Florida, where former President Donald Trump won nearly 51% of the vote compared to 22% four years earlier.

[ALBUM] Feels Like Home – Israel & New Breed

Award-winning American singer, songwriter, music producer, and worship leader Israel Houghton is ready to let go of the sense of lockdown and intimate home worship sessions in his latest project, “Feels Like Home: The Quarantine Worship Experience” coming Wednesday, February 26th in digital stores.

Feels Like Home of 14 tracks will be recorded for broadcast and purchase in digital, CD and vinyl formats, and is now available for pre-order and the online track is available immediately. Building on Hutton’s idea in early 2020 to broadcast remote worship services, the Feels Like Home project is the impetus for what will become “Wednesday worship” after seeing an opportunity to explore the dynamics of collective worship and reinvent it online during the pandemic.

The “Israel and New Breed” family lives as if at home from Hutton’s sister-in-law’s home in New York in November after each member agreed to quarantine and test for COVID-19 before the gathering. Skillfully led by Hutton alongside his wife, Adrian, the team performed while sitting “on the tour”, creating a warm, improvisational relaxation reminiscent of the roots of gospel music as a religious celebration and collective experience. This includes the new single “Hymn of Breakthrough,” which is an incandescent epiphany that slowly shines for “The Sound of Breakthrough” as it reverberates throughout the group.

“New Breed celebrated our twentieth year together in 2020. And although the whole scene has changed with how we do concerts and tours, we knew it was still important for us to come together. I am grateful for the sacrifices everyone on our team made to come together and share. “This show is carefully curated. Truth be told, it was one of the most rewarding worship experiences I have ever participated in.” – Israel Houghton added.
