What do Australians believe?

Did you know?

Religious Affiliation

  • Buddhist    2.5%    (  0.52  million)

  • Other        0.8%     (  0.16  million)
  • No Religion 22.3%  (  4.79  million)     * Atheists are part of this group
Q. Does the media—say for example, the Govt’s ABC—portray this sort of an Australia?–2013


1. Christian faith teaches that we should honor all people, of all creeds.

2. It also teaches that the resurrection of Jesus is Public Truth. (Leslie Newbigin)


Q. Is it appropriate that we, all therefore, walk on tenterhooks in these matters?  I think not.

Q. Could these figures be a major contributing factor as to why Australia is a generally fine place to live?

I would suggest that you read and listen to this talk re ALL religion as self-serving CULT.

Thanks John. But when you’ve finally come home to the Father, in the Son’s drawing-all-cross, by the inner action of the Spirit – you really don’t feel inclined to go searching in the land of the lost, again.
