Why Renewanation?

Today in America

  • 80% of 18-38 year-olds in America declare they are not born again

  • 94% do not believe in one or more of the cardinal doctrines of Christianity

  • 76% do not attend church

  • A strong majority have no problem with same-sex marriage [1]

 

We are fully confident that 16,000 hours of non-Christian K-12 education has played a major role in the loss of Christian faith in this generation.

The Secular Worldview Teaches

  • God does not exist

  • We are cosmic accidents

  • Hope is only found in scientific discovery

  • Religion and science are opposed to each other

  • Science is based on fact while religion is based on faith, fear, and ignorance

  • Morality is relative. What is wrong for you may not be wrong for me

  • There is no absolute standard of right and wrong because there is no absolute lawgiver

  • The Bible is full of errors and irrelevant to modern life

 

The majority of textbooks used in non-Christian schools are written from a secular perspective. Approximately 90% of America’s children are being trained to think from the perspective of this godless worldview.

 

The battle for the soul of America is being fought in the arena of worldviews. The classroom has become the #1 battlefield!

The college environment is even more aggressively anti-Christian.

The late secular professor of philosophy Richard Rorty said, “Parents who send their children to college should recognize that as professors we are going to go right on trying to discredit you in the eyes of your children, trying to strip your fundamentalist religious community of dignity, trying to make your views seem silly rather than discussable.”

For 13-15 years, our children hear the same secular message, and many stop believing in the faith of their childhood.

Studies suggest that nearly 80% of Christian young people who attend a secular college abandon their Christian faith by the time they graduate.

Unless the foundational philosophies of our current education system are reversed, it is not a question of if, it is only a question of when America will become a completely secular nation.

But there is hope if we engage in the battle for the soul of America being fought in the classroom. Learn more about Renewanation's work to transform culture.

About Us

Our vision is to see culture transformed by helping millions of children develop a biblical worldview.

What is a Worldview?

Our worldview is the “big picture” and culmination of all our beliefs. It is the way we understand reality.
