This time, the study focus is on Christian pastors, their philosophy and worldview. It’s common sense and only natural to expect your church leaders to have a proper foundation and understanding of Scripture, but the new nationwide survey of pastors shows a large majority do not even have a biblical worldview.
Yes, you read that correctly. This then begs the question, what in the world are they teaching their congregations?
I’ll get right to one of the takeaways from this new study by quoting the Director of Arizona’s Cultural Research Center, George Barna:
“It certainly seems that if America is going to experience a spiritual revival, that awakening is needed just as desperately in our pulpits as in the pews; …This [research] is another strong piece of evidence that the culture is influencing the American church more than Christian churches are influencing the culture;
The culture has more influence than the church. This is not a shock considering our moral decline over fifty-plus years.
