Shocking Results from American Culture and Faith Institute Worldview Study

Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver, and BarbWire.com Founder Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.

Worldview does matter — it shapes your ideas and your behavior. There’s some shocking information from the American Culture and Faith Institute, by George Barna’s research and it involves worldview information.

Mat Staver: Matt, in this particular case I just want to  talk about the thousand interviews. It’s the largest worldview survey ever conducted by the American Culture and Faith Institute. They have others as well. There’s 4500 interviews. There’s many other types of interviews that they did. But I want to focus on the 1000 interviews of adults 18+ nationally.

They have three categories:

Biblical Belief Score (BBF)

  • Nationally, the scores were as follows:
    • 10% have strong biblical beliefs (16 or more of the 20 items answered biblically)
    • 24% have moderate biblical beliefs (9 to 15 of the 20 items answered biblically)
    • 35% have below average biblical beliefs (4 to 8 of the 20 items answered biblically)
    • 31% have minimal biblical beliefs (3 or less of the 20 items answered biblically)

Biblical Behavior Score (BBV)

  • 18% have strong biblical behavior (16 or more of the 20 items answered biblically)
  • 38% have moderate biblical behavior (9 to 15 of the 20 items answered biblically)
  • 35% have below average biblical behavior (4 to 8 of the 20 items answered biblically)
  • 9% have minimal biblical behavior (3 or less of the 20 items answered biblically)

Integrated Disciple Score (IDS)

  • 10% have strong biblical beliefs and behavior (32 or more of the 40 items answered biblically)
  • 35% have moderate biblical beliefs and behavior (17 to 31 of the 40 items answered biblically)
  • 43% have below average biblical beliefs and behavior (7 to 16 of the 40 items answered biblically)
  • 11% have minimal biblical beliefs and behavior (6 or less of the 40 items answered biblically)
