A recent survey called “Spiritual Conversation in the Digital Age” – which included both Christians and non-Christians – yielded some interesting results:
- About 88% of the Christians surveyed said they share their faith online with both non-believers and other believers. (This includes social media, email, blog posts and posts on other web sites.)
- 28% of Christians said they’ve shared their faith with non-believers and others on their social media accounts.
- 30% of the Christians said they were equally likely to share their faith online or in person.
I find that last statistic a little odd, since it’s so much easier to say something online than in person.
Why do you think this is?
Perhaps the 30% aren’t saying that they share their faith just as frequently in person as they do online, but that if an opportunity to share their faith presents itself during an in-person conversation, they will be just as bold to share face-to-face as they are in sharing online.
