Easter Christian survey

Interesting results from a survey showing that most Australians believe that Jesus really existed and had divine powers.

MORE than four in 10 Australians who do not consider themselves “born again”‘ still believe Jesus rose from the dead, while one in 10 does not believe he existed…surprising results from an independent survey of 2500 people, said noted author and church historian John Dickson, the co-director of the Centre for Public Christianity in Sydney.
The survey, to be published today, found that out of the 85 per cent who did not identify as born again – including those of other religions – 45 per believed in the resurrection.
Asked if Jesus was a real figure, 11 per cent of non-born-agains said no, 39 per cent said yes but without divine powers, and 50 per cent said yes and with divine powers.
