host Adam McManus interviews Dr. Owen Strachan -- pronounced STRAN
-- who, along with Dr. George Barna, just launched The Center for Biblical Worldview at Family Research Council. Dr. Strachan currently
serves as Provost and Research Professor of Theology at Grace Bible Theological Seminary in Conway, Arkansas. And he’s former president
of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.
The Center for Biblical Worldview has released a new, national survey regarding the state of worldview in America. The objective of the survey was to provide original, research-based insights about how many people possess a Biblical worldview; if and to what extent they seek to integrate that worldview into every dimensions of their life; what influences have helped them to do so; and whether they believe that such integration matters to God.
According to the survey, 80% of born-again Christians claim to have a Biblical worldview. But, according to dozens of worldview questions, only 19% actually do!
Dr. Strahan said, “If Christians do not form a biblical worldview in evil days like these, they represent sitting ducks. But when believers are trained by churches and other strengthening institutions like Family Research Council to think in a distinctly Biblical way, they cease to be an easy target. They learn to think unto God, reason from the Scriptures, and proclaim the excellency of Christ in a world that hates Him.”
James 5:8 says, “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.”
