The stats are mind boggling. According to the Barna Research Group, only 4% of the general population of America has a Biblical worldview. Canada will have figures much the same as theirs- don't kid yourself. When you look at "born again believers" the number goes up to a stunning 9%!! Wow--That is just staggering. So please have a look guys! Just Google "Truth Project".
ta ta for now
here's a small clip from the study.
4. Why does a biblical worldview matter?
If we don't really believe the truth of God and live it, then our witness will be confusing and misleading.
If we don't really believe the truth of God and live it, then our witness will be confusing and misleading. Most of us go through life not recognizing that our personal worldviews have been deeply affected by the world. Through the media and other influences, the secularized American view of history, law, politics, science, God and man affects our thinking more than we realize. We then are taken "captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ" (Colossians 2:8).
However, by diligently learning, applying and trusting God’s truths in every area of our lives — whether it's watching a movie, communicating with our spouses, raising our children or working at the office — we can begin to develop a deep comprehensive faith that will stand against the unrelenting tide of our culture's nonbiblical ideas. If we capture and embrace more of God's worldview and trust it with unwavering faith, then we begin to make the right decisions and form the appropriate responses to questions on abortion, same- sex marriage, cloning, stem-cell research and even media choices. Because, in the end, it is our decisions and actions that reveal what we really believe.
"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind" (Romans 12:2).
