The vast majority of Americans — 96 percent — do not hold to a biblical worldview following the COVID-19 lockdowns, according to a new survey. A biblical worldview, the survey said, is one in which the entirety of a person’s “ideas about all dimensions of life and eternity is based on biblical principles and commands.”
Sadly, most of the institutional churches and their Bible Colleges no longer hold to the truth of God’s Word so why should these figures surprise us. Also, if the bulk of Americans do not believe God’s Word is the truth it is highly probable they will embrace the deception of the coming Antichrist and take the Mark of the Beast in order to survive.
Calling it a “significant change” in Americans’ worldview, the Cultural Research Center of Arizona Christian University led by researcher George Barna found in its survey that the lockdowns impacted the already-dwindling number of people who claim to hold a biblical worldview.
In what Barna called the first national study of its kind, the incidence of biblical worldview declined to a mere 4%, down one-third from the 6% recorded just months before the pandemic lockdowns started in March 2020.
“When you put the data in perspective, the biblical worldview is shuffling toward the edge of the cliff,” said Barna. “As things stand today, biblical theism is much closer to extinction in America than it is to influencing the soul of the nation.”
Part of the problem, said Barna, is that younger people, in particular, are “largely isolated from biblical thought in our society and are the most aggressive at rejecting biblical principles in our culture.”
Barna said Christian churches and schools should be putting more effort into helping their congregations and students think through the Scriptures. What Barna should have said is that churches and schools should be teaching our young people that evolution and billions of years of earth’s history are nonsense. Fortunately, God has raised up His ministries to provide excellent resources to overcome the deception: http://www.creation.com and http://www.answersingenesis.org are just two of the organizations that I recommend. Evidence for Noah’s worldwide flood is starkly evident with fossil fuels and billions of dead things preserved in the rocks all over the world. The flood, not billions of years caused the geology we observe today.
The impact of teaching that evolution not creation by God is the reason for the Cosmos has had a diabolical effect on our children.
Nearly one in five (19.7%) members of Generation Z consider themselves part of the LGBT community, with 13.1% describing themselves as bisexual, 3.4% identifying as gay, 2.2% categorizing themselves as lesbians, 1.9% saying they are trans-identified and 1.5% chose the “other LGBT” category when asked about their sexual orientation. The share of adults belonging to the LGBT community dropped in descending order by generation, with 11.3% of millennials (born between 1981 and 1996) having a significantly larger LGBT population than Generation X (3.3%), baby boomers (2.7%) and the silent generation (1.7%). Generation X is categorized as those born between 1965 and 1980, while baby boomers were born between 1946 and 1964 and the silent generation was born before 1946.
Jesus told us beforehand that this is what the world will be like before He comes back to restore righteousness:
“And brother will deliver brother over to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death. And you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.” Mark 13:12-13
