78% of Americans Identify as Christian; I Wonder What God Thinks

According to this report from Gallup News, 78% of Americans identify themselves with some form of Christian religion. Some people lament that this number is gradually, but steadily, declining. I, on the other hand, am shocked that the number is so high.

If we look at biblical standards and then look at our society, it seems obvious that less than 10% of the USA is actually Christian.

I wonder what God thinks when He sees a number like 78%.

And he said to them, "Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, "'This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.' You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men." (Mar 7:6-8)

That passage is a tough one. Ouch.
