In a recent study confirming the signs of the times, the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University, led by pollster George Barna, has revealed that only 2% of Millenials have a biblical world view.
A biblical worldview was defined as “believing that absolute moral truths exist; that such truth is defined by the Bible; and firm belief in six specific religious views. Those views were that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life; God is the all-powerful and all-knowing Creator of the universe and He stills rules it today; salvation is a gift from God and cannot be earned; Satan is real; a Christian has a responsibility to share their faith in Christ with other people, and the Bible is accurate in all of its teachings.”
While 2% is a dismally depressing number; one that is likely trending downward further, the results weren’t much better for Gen X’ers, (37 to 55 years of age) as the percentage of those who subscribe to a biblical worldview is only 5%. The group with the highest biblical worldview, Boomers and Elders over the age of 56, was still only 9%.
Further findings from the study revealed that:
“Millennials are less tolerant and respectful of others than previous generations. Millennials generally are seen as “tolerant.” Yet the AWVI 2020 findings show that Millennials—by their own admission—as far less tolerant than other generations. In addition, they are more likely to want to exact revenge when wronged, are less likely to keep a promise, and overall have less respect for others and for human life in general.”
Geroge Barna finds these results “profoundly disturbing ” noting:
“The significantly divergent worldview perspectives and applications of the four generations—especially how different the Millennials are from their predecessors—suggests a nation that is at war with itself to adopt new values, lifestyles, and a new identity. In other words, there is a war for worldview dominance. But, as the Scriptures remind us, a nation at war with itself cannot persist.”
