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 
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.
