American Evangelical Increasingly Embracing the Foolishness that God Accepts Worship From All Religions

A distressing surge is sweeping through the Church, especially American evangelicals—a surge that flouts the clear and unabashed truths of biblical Christianity. A 2022 Ligonier survey from thestateoftheology.com unveils this grim reality—a staggering 56% of evangelicals now falsely believe that God accepts worship from all religions, marking a significant increase from 42% in 2020.

At the heart of true Christianity is an irrefutable declaration from Jesus Christ, that He alone is “the way, and the truth, and the life,” and “no one comes to the Father except through [Him]” (John 14:6). This truth is non-negotiable, etched in the foundation of our faith, yet it’s being callously discarded by many who claim to follow Christ.

This foolish belief that God welcomes worship from any religion is not just a minor theological slip—it matters and it has eternal consequences. It is a glaring demonstration of apostasy. The Scriptures thunder against such deception. Proverbs 14:12 delivers a dire warning against such error: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” Death. Rebellion against God’s statutes, substituting God’s explicit commands with human opinions and desires, ends in death and this passage reveals that danger clearly.

Yet, the allure of a god who indiscriminately accepts worship from all corners is a seductive one, especially in today’s climate brimming with calls for inclusivity and tolerance. This ideology molds a god who bends to the cultural trends and updates his statutes according to the latest social fads rather than the Almighty God who dictates His sovereign terms through Scripture. People are drawn to this because it allows them to fashion a deity that is conveniently aligned with modern secular values—a deity that does not demand repentance, nor does it require turning from sin. It is a comfortable, non-confrontational god who asks nothing, challenges nothing, and condemns nothing.

Such beliefs not only trample on the authority of the Bible but also grotesquely distort God’s character—His holiness, His justice, and His exclusive pathway to salvation through Jesus Christ. The scripture declares God as “Holy, holy, holy,” a God of such purity that to presume He would sanction the worship of false idols or the rituals of demonic faiths is not just theologically inaccurate, it’s spiritually bankrupt. This frivolous embrace of universal religious validity does more than blur theological lines, it eradicates them, replacing divine truth with fallen human conjecture.

In this twisted worldview, the sovereignty of God is usurped by the sovereignty of self. Here, people crown themselves as the ultimate arbiters of truth, with personal preference overshadowing divine precept. It is a form of self-worship that elevates personal comfort over biblical fidelity, where the echoes of “did God really say…?” reverberate through their rejection of God’s authority over them, whether or not they believe it. This mindset reveals a profound misunderstanding of who God is, His majesty, His glory, and His demands. It demonstrates a daring confidence in human wisdom over divine revelation, a perilous path that Scripture warns leads only to destruction.

Asserting that God accepts the worship of all religions is to elevate human judgment above the decree of the one who created their mind and even gave them the ability to reason. It’s an arrogant posture—a vivid reflection of self-worship rather than submission to God, and this arrogance demonstrates a devastating disregard for the sanctity of Scripture and God’s explicit instructions on worship and idolatry.

The bottom line is this, this perilous view stems from an unregenerate heart, blind to the true nature of God and His majestic glory. The Bible is crystal clear, only worship that is rooted in spirit and truth, directed solely through Jesus Christ and in line with His divine instructions, is acceptable to God.

To endorse the notion that all forms of religious worship are acceptable to God is to stagger blindly on a path paved with spiritual compromise and decline—a path that leads away from the life-saving truth of the gospel. As followers of Christ, we must stand firm against this tide of popular but fatally flawed beliefs, championing the exclusive, transformative gospel of Jesus Christ against a backdrop of widespread biblical illiteracy and apostasy, and do so without fear of man, but fear of God alone.
