The USSA is, of course, no longer a Christian country. It’s not even close.
A new study by longtime evangelical Christian researcher George Barna finds that 94% of Americans do not hold a biblical worldview.
The study found that the most common worldview among Americans (88%) might best be termed syncretism, said Barna, describing it as a “disparate, irreconcilable collection of beliefs and behaviors that define people’s lives.”
Barna’s American Worldview Inventory was conducted by the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University, which Barna directs.
The 2021 edition is the first of its kind to measure seven prominent worldviews: biblical theism, secular humanism, postmodernism, moralistic therapeutic deism, nihilism, Eastern Mysticism and Marxism, along with its offshoot, critical race theory.
But Barna found that no single worldview was embraced by a significant percentage of Americans.
“Syncretism is a cut-and-paste approach to making sense of life,” he explained. “Rather than developing an internally consistent and philosophically coherent perspective, Americans embrace points of view or actions that feel comfortable or most convenient. Those beliefs and behaviors are often inconsistent, or even contradictory, but few Americans seemed troubled by that.”
Comfortable and convenient. Tolerant. Insouciant. Doomed. Elections and lawsuits will do nothing against the deserved Wrath of God.
