亞利桑那基督教大學文化研究中心的一項研究發現,只有6% 的美國人堅持聖經中的世界觀。這些發現發表在《美國世界觀2020年清單》上,對於那些自認為是福音傳播者的人來說,這是一個令人不安的領域。調查還發現,千禧一代(年齡在18歲到36歲之間)持有聖經世界觀的人數最少,只有2% 。
根據這項研究,美國人對聖經的世界觀正在迅速消失,但消失的速度是千禧一代中最快的。“先前《美國世界觀2020年調查表》的調查結果顯示,聖經世界觀在美國文化中正在迅速消失,如今只有6% 的成年人持有聖經世界觀,而在20世紀90年代中期,這一比例是現在的兩倍(12%)。但是,這種文化轉變在美國最年輕的成年人中最具戲劇性,他們的年齡在18歲到36歲之間。調查結果顯示,這一代人的世界觀和信仰與前幾代人截然不同。”
這項調查使用了巴納對聖經世界觀的定義,《基督教郵報》將其總結為“相信絕對的道德真理存在,並且這種真理是由聖經定義的,同時堅信六種特定的宗教觀點。這些觀點認為,耶穌基督過著無罪的生活; 上帝是全能的、無所不知的宇宙創造者,直到今天他仍然統治著宇宙; 救贖是上帝的禮物,不能靠掙得; 
撒旦是真實的; 
基督徒有責任與其他人分享他們對基督的信仰; 聖經的所有教導都是準確的。
此外,調查還發現,千禧一代在受到不公正待遇時最有可能採取報復行動,而且他們對美國的熱情最低。然而,調查顯示,大多數千禧一代仍習慣自稱是基督徒,儘管他們的世界觀最不符合聖經。此外,千禧一代表示,在所有年齡段的調查中,他們最不尊重其他人,而且他們說自己尊重與他們持有相同宗教和政治觀點的人的可能性是其他人的兩倍。

Only 2% of American Millennials Adhere to a Biblical Worldview, Study Finds

A study by the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University found that just six percent of Americans adhere to a biblical worldview. The findings, released in the American Worldview Inventory 2020, show a disconcerting realm for those who may consider themselves evangelists. The survey also found Millennials held the lowest number of biblical worldview holders, at just two percent.According to the study, Americans biblical worldview has been rapidly eroding but eroding the fastest for millennials. "Previous findings from the American Worldview Inventory 2020 show the rapid erosion of the biblical worldview in American culture—with only 6 percent of adults today possessing a biblical worldview, down from twice that (12 percent) in the mid-1990s. But nowhere is this cultural shift more dramatic than among the youngest American adults, ages 18 to 36. The findings show a generation radically different in its worldview and beliefs from previous generations.”Additionally, the survey found millennials are the most likely to exact revenge when wronged and are least enthusiastic about America. However, most millennials claim to be Christians, even though they have the least biblical worldview, according to the survey. Additionally, millennials report they have the least respect for other people out of all age groups surveyed, and they are twice as likely to say they respect someone who holds the same religious and political views as they do.The survey used Barnas definition of a biblical worldview, which The Christian Post summarized as "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 still 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."Millennials in the park, only 2 percent of millennials adhere to a biblical worldview
