Christian Parents Called to Disciple Children - But Only 21% of Evangelical Christians Have a Biblical Worldview

According to George Barna’s America’s Worldview Inventory, a person’s worldview (the lens through which they see and understand the world) is solidified by age 13. Although someone’s worldview may change or adjust throughout their life, the overwhelming majority of Americans have their worldview in place before high school, with little to no change afterward.

Barna’s research shows that today only 6% of American adults hold a biblical worldview. Even more troubling is the finding that only 21% of those who regularly attend evangelical churches have a biblical worldview—despite the fact that 81% think they do.

Guest host Adam McManus interviews David Closson, the Director for The Center for Biblical Worldview at Family Research Council about his column entitled The Duty of Parents in Education.

God has clearly outlined parents’ responsibility for their children. When Moses was passing down the law of God to the people of Israel at Mount Sinai, God commanded parents:

“And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” (Deut. 6:6-7)

By issuing these commands to parents, God made them ultimately responsible for educating and instilling a biblical worldview in their children.
