Poll: More people doubt bible's relevance

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new poll finds the number of Americans who consider the bible merely the teachings of men, rather than the word of god, is increasing.

The "State of the Bible" survey finds that while about one in five Americans continue to read the bible at least four times a week and view it as "divinely inspired," an equal percentage doubt the bible's relevance and authority.

That's almost twice the percentage of those who were skeptical of the bible back in 2011.

The greatest increase was among Americans between the ages of 18 to 29.
