Now the reasons, or results as you choose, are being seen: Only 20% of Americans see the Bible as the actual Word of God. A full 29% call it “fables” and “legends.”
The biggest portion, 49%, say it is “inspired” by God but it is NOT to be taken literally.
The results of the Gallup polling say the 20% who believe the Bible actually is God's Word is at a record low.
That's down from 24% the last time the question was asked, in 2017, and about half what it was in 1980 and 1984.
