NEW YORK — A new report released today finds Americans overwhelming (77%) believe morals and values are declining in the U.S. The most-cited cause for the decline? A lack of Bible reading.
The findings are reported in American Bible Society’s annual State of the Bible survey released today. The report details Americans’ beliefs about the Bible, its role in society, its presence in U.S. homes and more. As in previous years, the survey found that the Bible remains a highly valued, influential force in America.
But beliefs about the Bible and its role in society are becoming increasingly polarized – particularly when the data is examined by age group.
