Whether you know it or not, everyone has a worldview—a lens through which you see the world.
WOODLAND PARK, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, April 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Although a recent survey revealed that only about six percent of American adults have a biblical worldview there is reason for optimism, according to a prominent Christian researcher.
“The truth of the matter is God has his remnant here in America,” said Dr. George Barna of the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University. “There are millions of devoted followers of Christ here in America who are willing to do anything that God calls them and prepares them to do.”
Dr. Barna recently joined a Truth & Liberty Coalition livecast to discuss a number of issues, including why promoting a biblical worldview is important for America’s future.
Whether you know it or not, everyone has a worldview—a lens through which you see the world. According to Dr. Barna, among all worldviews—including secular humanism and Marxism—the biblical worldview is still most prevalent.
“What we're seeing now is an increase in the proportion of Americans, and even spiritual leaders, who are tuning into this idea of biblical worldview,” said Dr. Barna. “It's so important, because that's the mental, the moral, the spiritual filter, the emotional filter that we use to make decisions.”
In contrast, the number of people who identify with a strictly Marxist worldview has dropped dramatically in the last two years. Seeing socialist principles promoted by leftist candidates in the last election had a significant impact, according to Dr. Barna.
According to Dr. Barna, worldview begins developing in children at the age of 15 months and can be fully formed by 13 years old. He says it is a priority for churches and parents to disciple kids and shape a biblical worldview.
“There's so much stuff that kids can absorb,” says Dr. Barna “We've got to stop thinking, ‘Oh, they're so small. We'll wait until they're in their 20s.’ Too late. By then, the world's already won them over.”
The Truth & Liberty Coalition is working to equip people to be active; to make their biblical views known. “Educating people of faith to engage in public affairs is important for maintaining biblical values in our society,” said Richard Harris, executive director, Truth & Liberty Coalition.
To help develop a biblical worldview, check out the new Biblical Worldview curriculum series created by Andrew Wommack Ministries.
“We find often that Christians don’t know where to start,” said Harris. “Our goal is to educate audiences and connect with resources and groups across the nation to help them impact their own spheres of influence.”
