  • Well my 3 and 5 year old but I'm pretty sure by the time they reach middle school they'll ahve heard. I'm obviously being optimistic with the time.

  • Before I became a Christian in highschool I really didn't know a lot about it. I'm pretty sure almost everyone has heard of the name of Jesus and that he died on a cross, but that doesn't mean that they really understand it.

  • there are millions of people who do not have a solid, working knowledge of Christianity. If there were none, there would be no need for missionaries.

  • depends on what you mean by working knowledge. i think most ppl know what Christianity's core tenets are but their "knowledge" isnt necessarily devoid of stereotypes and assumptions.

  • Yup I do.... there are still many places we have not reached... however we might not have to... God can very well show up in their midst... it has happened numerous times in many different places.

  • It is all subjective amd its all different depending on the religion,denomination,sect,etc.
    I'm still not sure that anyone has a real knowledge of ANY religion. It all seems to be built on fiction.

  • I believe everyone does albeit different religions, but they are taught from a very young age. Passed down by their elders. What one chooses to do with this knowledge is obviously up to them.

  • Yes, tons of people. Lots of people who didn't grow up going to church really have a very limited knowledge on Christianity... it was something that I didn't realize until a few years ago.

  • I think there's a lot of nominally "Christian people who don't have a sound working knowledge of Christianity. But what do I care? It's none of my business. I tend my faith and teach my kids to be good honest kind people. What others do is their concern not mine.

  • It's really the Holy Spirit that reveals so much more.
