“One out of every twenty adults in America have a biblical worldview. Our worldview begins developing at 15 months of age and is almost fully formed by age 13.” -Dr. Barna
Dr. George Barna founded the Barna Research Group in 1984 (now The Barna Group) and helped it become a leading marketing research firm focused on the intersection of faith and culture. He currently serves as the executive director of the American Culture and Faith Institute and is President of Metaformation, a faith development organization. Dr. Barna has written over 50 award-winning best-selling books and is hailed as “the most quoted person in the Christian Church today.” He’s recognized as one of the nation’s most influential Christian leaders!
Dr. Barna elaborates on:
- Findings from various studies regarding worldview formation and how important it is to help your child form a biblical worldview before age 13.
- Only 1 out of 3 pastors in Christian churches have a biblical worldview, and only 12% (1 out of 8) of youth pastors have a biblical worldview.
- Biblically speaking, parents are responsible for shaping their child’s worldview, but they are losing that influence on their children because their words and deeds are inconsistent, and nobody is concerned about their faith formation.
- How parents must do a ruthless self-evaluation of their worldview and be intentional, strategic, and consistent – they must also hold themselves accountable and keep their children accountable when building a proper biblical worldview.
