I recently saw a survey of Roman Catholics regarding how important they felt about their church teachings. Here is the results of a few of the items
73% thought the resurrection of Jesus to be very important
64% saw the Mother of God, Mary, as being very important
63% saw sacraments such as the Eucharist as very important
46% saw daily prayer life as very important
This means 27% do not see the Resurrection to be very important, 36% so not see the Mother of God to be very important, 37% do not see the Sacraments to be very important and 54% do not see daily prayer as very important. So what kind of Christianity is this? For Orthodox Christian these are all supposed to be very important. I have seen similar surveys that show Orthodox Christians to have views similar to the Catholics.
So I have a few questions for you: How important are these to you? What does it mean to be a good Christian? What do you consider to be very important in the growth of your faith?
