A Gallup poll has revealed that three in ten Americans believe the Bible should be interpreted literally.
This number has declined over the last 40 years, down at least 7% since the early 1980's. The poll also found a political connection with 42 percent of Republicans, 23 percent of independents and 27 percent of Democrats taking the Bible literally word for word.
"Modern society frequently challenges the Bible as the actual word of God."
