Record low number of Americans hold biblical worldview
Only 6 percent of Americans possess a biblical worldview, according to a new survey.
The study, which was released last week out of the recently launched Cultural Research Center based at Arizona Christian University, is called the American Worldview Inventory and is the first of what will be an annual report from veteran researcher George Barna, who is the CRC research director.
The survey asked 51 worldview questions that examined both what people believe and how they conduct their lives....
For all the medication to keep unhealthy people moving along the pack , and unhealthy life styles that are encouraged and celebrated, God in his redeeming wisdom allows this broken world to be reminded that we are not in charge. If he created this world, he can refashion it and change society however He chooses. Earthquakes, asteroids , melting ice shelves, and pandemics Nothing surprises God, but always surprises frail man.
Yes. I remember very well (Adriel) when sodomite behaviors were unacceptable by everyone. Now it is being not only acceptable-- but actually EMBRACED even by certain congregations. I didn't say "churches" deliberately as denominations and buildings are not the body of Christ. All saved/only --only saved persons are the true body of Christ and are the real church (ekklesia)--- & not the meeting place: not a building made by hands. And, yes, many churches have become impotent. This is why I love SermonAudio. Many sermons are here and I am here several times a day, evening, and nights. Thank you for your always wise, thoughtful, and edifying comments. God's continual blessings to you is my prayer for you.
Why has the world become so corrupt and anti-Bible in these times?
2Tim 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." ..... v8 so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith."
All these "predictions" are correct. We are experiencing them in society today.
Now, Has the world today become like this BECAUSE of the prediction? - or - In spite of the prediction? Whats going on??
We cannot blame mankind for a sinful world when 'fallen world' is expected when inhabited by sinners. But this leaves the question, 'Why have we become such a sin dominated society today, when previously there was less aggressive wickedness'? - Even 'passive' virtuous nature?
EG: Sodomite behaviour was unacceptable to 'ALL' - not just the orthodox Bible Christian.
EG: Many churches have become Biblically impotent?
"Approximately one-fifth of those who attend evangelical Protestant churches espouse a biblical worldview,"
I'm surprised it's that high, given what I've seen among church leaders, who regardless of how sound their doctrine may be, set a bad example by their practical atheism in worship and church governance.
Almost all OT prophecy denounces two things: idolatry and bad conduct. It's hard to miss, yet the application is often wanting.
