Christian Hindus...or?

This survey, if correct, confirms my strong suspicion that most American (Western?) Christians are not only biblically illiterate but also are unaware of even basic Christian doctrine. When over 2 in 10 people who say they are "Christian" also say they believe they will be reincarnated again and again...I don't even know what to say!

I heard something like this a long time ago. (sigh). Personally, we even really misrepresent Hindu doctrine. We think being reincarnated is a good thing. But the idea is, when you get it (life) right, you stop being reincarnated.

Wow, I don't get it either.

I wanna know where they got their hard data on reincarnation??? I missed that. Darn.

When I did my guest lecture on Mormon feminism I found at least a third of the (Catholic) students held Mormon views on the preexistence of souls, and were sure the pope did too....It is a rather logical consequence of the concept of the immmortal soul as one of them pointed out!
