Reviewing the data, it quickly becomes apparent that what people think they believe (a Biblical Christian Worldview) is not what they are actually willing to accept when pressed. What is perhaps most shocking, if one is willing to accept the data, is that among those who attend evangelical churches, 81% claim to have a Biblical Christian worldview, however when questioned in detail, only 21% are willing to fully accept its tenants. Looking deeper into the demographics it should not be a surprise that our acceptance of those theological constructs deteriorates the younger the generation polled. That reality, if left unchecked, does not bode well for our future. 

This is just further documentation that America has long since left its position as a Christian nation, regardless of the rhetoric of its population to the contrary. Undermining it all is the realization that, when pressed on contemporary issues that run counter to a Biblical Christian worldview, many submit to evolving cultural norms rather than remaining “aligned with the Bible, acknowledging its truth and applicability to every area of life.”
