Competing worldviewsSummit Ministries recently partnered with Barna Group in a study to gauge how ideas from other key worldviews have infected Christians’ beliefs about God and the world around us. This new research sought to identify the source of many nonbiblical ideas infecting Christianity, and found strong agreement among practicing Christians with ideas unique to nonbiblical worldviews.

Jeff Myers, president of Summit Ministries, reacted to the survey:

"I am shocked about these results. While only 17% of practicing Christians have a biblical worldview...

  • 61% agree with ideas rooted in new spirituality,
  • 54% with postmodernism,
  • 38% with Islam,
  • 36% with Marxism,
  • and 29% with secularism.”

"Imagine if we started raising generations of children who stood uncompromisingly on the Word of God, knew how to defend the Christian faith, could answer the skeptical questions of this age, and had a fervor to share the gospel from the authority of God's Word with whomever they met! This could change the world."
