MORE PROOF: Seeker-sensitive / Purpose-driven Models Creating False Converts

From Christian Research Network

Granger Community Church, one of the premiere Purpose-Driven churches and the 6th most influential church in America just announced the results of their Reveal Study. The results are SHOCKING but not surprising because sites like this one have been warning for years that the seeker-sensitive / purpose-driven model was creating false converts and now there is hard statistical data that backs up this claim.

Granger’s own qualitative study revealed that:
47% of those attending Granger DO NOT believe in salvation by grace.
57% of those attending Granger DO NOT believe in the authority of the Bible.
56% of those attending Granger DO NOT believe Jesus is the only way to eternal life.

Don't miss the Fighting For The Faith Radio Program discussion on this sobering, but not surprising announcement.

Editor's note: Imagine if the Southern Baptist Convention conducted such a study with SBC pastors. Would the statistics be much different than Granger's?

Will Granger now return to the Biblical "methodology" of preaching the whole counsel of God, discipling and equipping the saints?

Will Granger join Willow Creek in the next stream in the flood of man-centered, experiential religion offered by the Emergent church?
