Daily Bible Reading down to 9%

Barna/American Bible Society 2020 numbers have daily Bible reading down to just 9%.

American Bible Society – State of the Bible 2020

As we called out two years ago, there appears to be a strong social desirability effect, because ABS/Barna numbers are significantly higher than secular numbers like IUPUI (coincidentally 9% as well). Now that ABS/Barna is addressing their social desirability effects, the numbers have dropped significantly.

Is the Bible Special? 80% of American’s aren’t sure

American Bible Society is conflating disagree somewhat with disagree strongly. I’d say that disagree strongly is a better way to distinguish against the “social desirability effect.” Thus, less than 20% of Americans strongly believe there is a significant difference between the Bible, and other religious works.

A must read article on the chasm between Millenials and WEPS:

a chasm has emerged between the views of these young people and white evangelical Protestants. A PRRI survey found that 83 percent of the latter believe that sex is morally acceptable only between a man and a woman who are married, but this view is held among only 30 percent of all young adults. For many young people, white evangelical Protestants in the 21st century appear to be advocating a mid-20th century approach to sex, relationships and marriage, even as American society resembles life during this period less and less.

And the growing WEP apostasy

Nearly one-third of white Americans raised in evangelical Christian households leave their childhood faith.2 About 60 percent of those who leave end up joining another faith tradition, while 40 percent give up on religion altogether. The rates of disaffiliation are even higher among young adults: 39 percent of those raised evangelical Christian no longer identify as such in adulthood.
