George Barna claims "People’s faith commitment impacts their moral perspectives. There is a clear relationship between a deep Christian commitment and serious concern about the moral state of America. This is one of those moments in history when genuine, fervent leaders of righteous character and with a vision to foster higher ideals can galvanize the public will for a better society. The big question is whether those who are capable of providing moral leadership are willing to pay the personal price to redirect the heart of the nation." The more deeply a person is committed to the Christian faith, the greater their concern for the nation’s moral condition. In fact 56% of adults associated with a non-Christian faith group are concerned; 68% of those who are with the Christian faith but are not born again; 89% of the born again; and 92% of evangelicals.
