The American Worldview Inventory 2021 survey of adult philosophy of life in America concludes that American youth are drifting. The report, conducted by Arizona Christian University, assesses the worldviews of four generations and warns that beliefs and behaviors of younger Americans, especially Millennials, “threaten to reshape the nation’s religious parameters beyond recognition.”
In his book, Hope for This Present Crisis: The Seven Step Path to Restoring a World Gone Mad, Dr. Michael Youssef observes, “Our culture has lost its mind. … All across America and Europe, churches are emptying, and an entire generation is turning away from God. People today have many gods—money, pleasure, politics, the environment—but they no longer acknowledge the God of the Bible.”
The university’s cultural research center (CRC) polled Millennials (born 1984-2002) Gen X (1965-1983), Baby Boomers (1946-1964) and Builders (1927-1945). They noted the following in comparison to traditional Christian beliefs:
— Researchers found that among other recent generations, Millennials have gone farther in cutting ties with traditional Christian views and normative biblical teaching.
— For example, nearly half of all Boomers believe that when they die, they will go to heaven only because they confessed their sins and accepted Jesus as their Savior, compared to only 26% of Gen X and 16% of Millennials.
— Additionally, 43% of Millennials stated they either don’t know, don’t care or don’t believe God exists, compared to 28% of Boomers, and 44% of Millennials, who believe Satan is real and influential, compared to 64% of Boomers.
— On spiritual matters, Americans younger than 55 are far more likely to distrust the Bible and to believe God is uninvolved in people’s lives.
— However, a majority of Americans call themselves Christian, ranging from 57% of Millennials to 83% of Builders.
