What Is a Biblical Worldview? with George Barna

If you have adopted my material for any sum of time in the previous yr, you have read me discuss continuously about the jarring studies linked to the shrinking % of Americans who have a biblical worldview (this was especially related track record context for my newest e-book, Faithfully Unique: Regaining Biblical Clarity in a Secular Culture). I have prepared and talked about a lot of different research and numbers, but two of the most pertinent information details are these: 65% of Us residents self-determine as Christians, but analysis on people’s true beliefs and behavior shows that only about 6% have a biblical worldview. This substantial hole has numerous implications for the church today. 

But how specifically do scientists define a biblical worldview? How do they get to that 6% estimate? And is it definitely a responsible picture of exactly where we are as the church in The usa? In this episode, I get into all the details with the man at the rear of the investigation: Dr. George Barna, who is the Director of Investigation for Arizona Christian University’s Cultural Investigation Centre.

Dr. Barna responses questions this kind of as:

  • How his staff arrived at their set of 54 queries (across 8 perception and conduct classes) to evaluate the biblical worldview in America
  • Why behavioral queries are an essential part of measuring worldview (and not only beliefs)
  • Irrespective of whether “secondary issues” this sort of as denominational specifics and views on the age of the Earth/evolution are component of the biblical worldview definition utilized
  • How a representative sample is chosen
  • What the parameters are for employing study solutions to categorize persons as acquiring a biblical vs. other worldview
  • What we can do as the overall body of Christ to maximize the percent of self-determined Christians who maintain to a biblical worldview
