STUDY: 2% Of Millennials Have A “Biblical Worldview”

The Christian Post reports:

Although 61% of American millennials consider themselves to be Christian, just 2% of them were found to hold a biblical worldview, according to a recent study released by the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University.

A biblical worldview, as previously defined by Barna, includes believing that absolute moral truths exist, and that such truth is defined by the Bible, as well as firm belief in six specific religious views.

Those views are that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life; God is the all-powerful and all-knowing Creator of the universe and He stills rules it today; salvation is a gift from God and cannot be earned; Satan is real; a Christian has a responsibility to share their faith in Christ with other people; and the Bible is accurate in all of its teachings.

UPDATE: Our friend Hemant Mehta from the The Friendly Atheist writes with a correction, noting that the 2% figure only applies because you have to agree with all six of the above statements. In fact, Hemant notes, 46% of millennials believe Satan is real, but since they don’t agree with the full list, they get scored at 2% overall. I’ve therefore edited my headline, which originally said Just 2% Of Millennials Believe Satan Is Real.
