Survey Reveals Generational Views on God

A survey of American adults has found nearly half of the Millennial generation either don’t know, don’t care, or don’t believe God exists.

The American Worldview Inventory was undertaken this year by the Arizona Christian University.

The Christian Post reports the survey assessed the worldviews of four generations, including Millennials, Generation X, Baby Boomers and Builders.

It found Millennials born between 1984 and 2002 have gone the farthest in cutting ties with traditional Christian views and normative biblical teaching.

Just 16 percent of Millennials believe that when they die, they will go to Heaven only because they confessed their sins and accepted Jesus as Saviour.

This compares with nearly half of the Boomers surveyed who held that view.

A staggering 90 percent of Builders believe people should treat others as they want to be treated, while less than half of Millennials agreed with that statement.

Additionally, 43 percent of Millennials stated they had no conviction or concern about whether God exists.
