This video shows just how deeply held many unfavorable views about Christianity are in our culture. When one does a search on Google, the search engine makes suggestions as you type, based on searches made by others. The result, as you will see, can be downright frightening. After you watch this video, try it for yourself. What do you think we can do to change people’s perceptions of Christians?
