Sad commentary on PCUSA

This is a sad finding within the PCUSA. A survey was done of PCUSA members. Responding to the question "Only followers of Jesus can be saved," the following percentages of each member type responded with "strongly agree" or "agree"
  • Lay members: 39%
  • Elders: 45%
  • Pastors: 35%
  • Specialized Clergy: 22% (I'm not sure what this category means)
There are other interesting statistics found here.

I hope this is seen as a cause for weeping. How sad that a denomination should have such a distribution of responses on the doctrine of justification, particularly among the ordained leaders.
