The God Poll

Recorded on August 12, 2011

Every day we hear polls about President Obama's job performance, or Congress, or the Republican candidates running for Presdient.

The numbers can make you as dizzy as watching the stock market bounce wildly up and down.

But one poll found something different to ask about.

The question they asked was this: “If God exists, do you approve or disapprove of its performance?”

Now as a believer, I have no doubt that God exists, but I was curious about how Americans answered. 52 percent said they approve of God's work; only 9 percent disapproved. Lots were unsure.

When it came to creation, 71% said they approve of God's handiwork; only 5% said he should have done a better job.

But instead of pollsters asking us to judge God, shouldn't we be more concerned about how God will judge us?
