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.

"Previous findings from the American Worldview Inventory 2020 show the rapid erosion of the biblical worldview in American cultureâ€”with only 6 percent of adults today possessing a biblical worldview, down from twice that (12 percent) in the mid-1990s.

Quote... â€œIt is highly important for us to have clear and scriptural views of the foreknowledge of God. Erroneous conceptions about it lead inevitably to thoughts most dishonoring to Him. The popular idea of divine foreknowledge is altogether inadequate. God not only knew the end from the beginning, but also He planned, fixed, predestinated everything from the beginning. And, as cause stands to effect, so Godâ€™s purpose is the ground of His prescience. If then the reader is a real Christian, he is so because God chose him in Christ before the foundation of the world (Eph. 1:4); and chose not because He foresaw you would believe, but simply because it pleased Him to choose; chose you notwithstanding your natural unbelief. This being so, all glory and praise belongs alone to Him. You have no ground for taking any credit to yourself. You have "believed through grace" (Acts 18:27), and that, because your very election was "of grace" (Rom. 11:5).â€œ (A W Pink)

There are quite a few within this age bracket who do hold to a Biblical worldview and are teaching it to their children. His own know His voice.
Amen brother, what a wonderful and truthful post. All of this is working together to bring about the return of our lord and Savior. Praise His holy name.
Psalms 2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
