What percentage of people in the United States hold a biblical worldview? What percentage of Christians in the United States hold a biblical worldview? Glad you asked. George Barna has been asking this question in his surveys for many years. Here is how he defines a biblical worldview:
“For the purposes of the survey, a ‘biblical worldview’ was defined as believing that absolute moral truth exists; the Bible is totally accurate in all of the principles it teaches; Satan is considered to be a real being or force, not merely symbolic; a person cannot earn their way into Heaven by trying to be good or do good works; Jesus Christ lived a sinless life on earth; and God is the all-knowing, all-powerful creator of the world who still rules the universe today. In the research, anyone who held all of those beliefs was said to have a biblical worldview.” Os describes a comparison between the current moral condition in our nation and the Roman Empire and what we can learn. He provides statistics on the current condition of belief in American and its impact on culture.
