Author: Christians Should Accept Religious Pluralism

Ad Feedback

What if America's greatest enemy is not al Qaeda or Iran, but America itself?

The United States is hailed as a melting pot of ethnic and religious diversity. But could this trait actually stand in the way of a common vision that once made our nation so great?

Click play to watch Barna's interview with Gordon Robertson from Thursday's "The 700 Club."

Researcher George Barna has spent 25 years analyzing faith and culture in America. In his new book "The Seven Faith Tribes," he breaks the nation down into seven belief groups:

  1. Casual Christians
  2. Captive Christians
  3. Skeptics
  4. Jews
  5. Mormons
  6. Pantheists
  7. Muslims

To renew America, each tribe must seek common ground, open dialog, and shared moral values with the other tribes, Barna writes.

And he has a firm -- and somewhat controversial -- message for Christians from his own tribe: It's time for Christians to accept the realities of multi-culturalism and religious pluralism.
