100 PERCENT AMERICAN
In a book called 100% American, Daniel Weiss profiles the American populace using a variety of statistics, including these:
•1% of Americans read the Bible more than once a day.
•15% of American married men say they do most of the cooking in the household.
•30% of Americans smoke cigarettes.
•42% of Americans cannot name a country near the Pacific Ocean.
•67% of Americans believe files are being kept on them for unknown reasons.
•70% of Americans own running shoes but don't run.
•84% of Americans believe heaven exists.
•94% of American men would change something about their looks if they could.
•96% of American school children can identify Ronald McDonald (who is second only to Santa Claus)
•99% of American women would change something about their looks if they could.
Here are some additional statistics that should drive us to our knees:
•100% of Americans (and everyone else) are spiritually lost until they meet Jesus Christ (John 14:6).
•100% of Americans need to hear the gospel (Romans 1:16).
•100% of Americans need to worship God in spirit and truth (John 4:14)
So, where do you fit in those statistics?
