    My first that is I am constantly disappointed this is the least followed belief of protestants.

    First all - a great number require the "formula" of belief you have to state to be born again.

    Secondly, there is a huge trend of open condemnation of whole populations and a good number of churches are more focused on condemnation than service or grace.

    Or maybe its that if we do accept this doctrine, it is only applied in a vague sense and handed over to God. A lot of pro-life people support the death penalty. The "shoot em now and let God sort em out" allows us to not apply the idea of redemption in our daily lives.
