Biblical Worldview

According to a recent survey, the proportion of American adults who have a biblical worldview dropped to 7 percent in 2018, the lowest on record. The data confirmed what has long been known—a large majority of Americans are biblically illiterate and don’t understand Christian convictions. This is especially true regarding morally weighty topics such as abortion, religious liberty, and sexuality. Significantly, even professing Christians often struggle to defend a biblical ethic when it comes to these politically contentious issues.

This widespread biblical illiteracy explains why Christian beliefs are increasingly dismissed as outdated or seen as “hateful.” Perhaps more than ever before, Christians need to be grounded in the truths of God’s Word and be prepared to articulate the core beliefs of the faith in a winsome manner.
