New Poll Shows Faith in God is at Record Lows Among Key Parts of Population

There’s a reason that “In God We Trust” is written on our money and the walls of Congress.

It’s because this country was founded on the belief that divine providence is the basis of our hope and strength. Without God we are nothing. Literally. 

Yet, an increasing number of young Americans simply don’t believe in God and think the whole faith thing is nonsense. 

A new poll out from the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University (ACU) has some very troubling results for those who are worried about our younger generations. 

The poll was done for the university by the American Worldview Inventory, or AWVI, and has results that will depress even the most optimistic among us.

Main Result: a Massive Erosion of God-Fearing and Christian Values

The poll basically shows that a large amount of younger folks and millennials (those born between 1984 to 2002) don’t believe in or care about God or faith and instead care more about the false idol of “social justice” and personal satisfaction. 

The poll of those over 18 in the US had the following results in the Millennial category:

57% of Millennials view themselves as Christians.

43% do not believe in, know about, or care about God.

48% believe you ought to abide by the Golden Rule. 

38% believe taking revenge upon someone who wronged you is justified. 

The numbers for Gen X (those born between 1965-1983) are also quite low on faith in God. 

Baby Boomers (those born between 1946-1964) and the Greatest Generation (1927-1945) are much higher on belief in God and basic morality. 

The numbers keep getting lower as we move forward, and ACU sociologist George Barna who heads up the research center that put out the poll called these results “dramatic changes” in the central beliefs of America.

Our “core institutions” including essential ways of life and even churches are continually facing “[radical redefinition],” Barna said. He adding that Millennials rated much higher on prioritizing their own life satisfaction and freedom, agreeing with abortion as an option, believe reincarnation is probably real, and finding sex before marriage acceptable. 

Other rising beliefs among the younger generations revealed in the poll include less support for marriage and having kids. 

Many poll respondents also support big government and want the liberal welfare state to look after them. 

The Bottom Line

The bottom line is that America’s broken families are no longer raising children to become adults. They are casting off broken, brainwashed husks with no faith in God who enter society expecting handouts and thinking that morality is about personal likes and dislikes. 

Believing that right and wrong depends on your feelings is literally the belief of a small child. To have young adults now growing up by the millions who think their precious feelings define the purpose of life is actual terrifying and spells future social collapse. 

Kids go to school and learn that America is bad, families are oppressive, and God is a myth. They are then bombarded by media telling them to fornicate as much as possible, try drugs and hate white people. 

This country is broken! It’s time to turn things around, starting with speaking up about disturbing polls like this one and what they show.
