A survey carried out by ComRes, on behalf of BBC Local radio, reveals that 46% of British self-identified Christians believe Jesus died on the cross to save them from their sins.
ComRes surveyed 2,042 British adults, who were asked were asked ‘To what extent, if at all, do you agree or disagree that Jesus died on the cross and was resurrected at Easter so that you can be forgiven for your sins?’.
Among the respondents who identified as Christian, a quarter said they neither disagreed nor agreed, while 17% answered that they did not agree.
The BBC also asked ComRes to survey people on their views around forgiveness and whether there were some actions that they would not able to forgive.
The questions about forgiveness included murder, child abuse, sexual abuse, infidelity, verbal abuse, abuse on social media, lying, stealing, swearing, and discrimination.
In some categories, respondents identifying with the Christian faith were less likely to find something ‘impossible to forgive’ and more likely to find it ‘difficult’.
