Study by Barna group: If the statistics are correct then a biblical worldview in America is dying

CBN News

Galatians 1:6-9 “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.”

Important Takeaways:

  • Death of a Biblical Worldview in America: Most Parents of Young Children Don’t Believe in Jesus for Salvation
  • Millennial moms and dads aren’t passing on a biblical worldview to their children, according to research conducted by Dr. George Barna at Arizona Christian University’s Cultural Research Center.
  • Which is why Dr. Barna is concerned and stressing the importance of sharing a Christian worldview with children. The study found while 67% of American parents with pre-teens identify as Christian, only 2% possess a biblical worldview.
  • “One of the most important things we learned about parents with pre-teens, is that they don’t believe the Bible is reliable or true, or relevant to their lives,” said Dr. Barna. “They don’t have the same view of God as given to us in the Bible. Five out of 6 of them are not born-again Christians, meaning they believe when they die and go to heaven – but only because they confessed their sins and accepted Jesus Christ as their savior.”
  • “Most of the parents of young children in America, if they were to die today – probably would not wind up in heaven,” said Dr. Barna.
  • “Most people die with the same worldview in essence that they had at the age of 13,” Dr. Barna said.
  • “Does that mean that Christianity is going to go away in American culture?” asked Dr. Barna. “And to make that argument, you would have to believe that God has given up on America. And yet the reality is we have a remnant of about 15 million adults across the country who possess a biblical worldview, and that’s a huge remnant, so God could certainly use them to turn around this culture.”
