More College Students Walking Away From Christianity
Allison Lynn grew up attending an Assemblies of God church with her family. But when she moved from home to go to Texas State University in San Marcos, she walked away from her faith.

Lynn's story is not unusual. An alarming number of college students are severing ties with the church. Some, such as Lynn, later return to the faith. Others walk away permanently.

More than two-thirds of Protestant young adults exit the church between the ages of 18 and 22, according to a recent report by LifeWay Research, a branch of the Southern Baptist Convention. ...

I read all the comments, and I must admit that they manifest in a different way the reason this young lady 'walked' away from church.

Endemic to modern Christianity is the view that the 'Church' is always at fault. The Church must entertain, the Church must meet their every needs, social, economic et cetera...

The Church should be viewed as the 'state' is. Our Mother leading us and feeding us from the cradle to the grave. The kind of statism which is prevalent today sees the state as 'God walking on the earth' Hegel.

The article proposes setting up groups to 'connect' 'Christians' together, sounds like a kind of dating agency This is not the problem. The article misses the fundamental point. We don't need anymore 'groups' to solve our problems. You see that each time the Word goes out of church another group comes in!

Our duty is to educate our Children in a Christian environment. Instead we send them into the hands of Liberals and Atheists, and wonder why they speak that language!

Awake sleepers! Leave the 'groups' and para-Church organisations out and bring God's Word back, educate in Christian Colleges, Schools, teach the Christian Worldview and see the difference

I would also like to comment on the thought of Charismatics. Old time pentecostals and modern Charismatics are totally different. Old time Pentecost still preaches justification by faith, the cross, the blood, and the working of the Holy Ghost. It is also fundamental in the KJV version of the Bible. Whereas "modern charismania," is very liberal in its approach.
Typo error. That should have been Rev. 22:18-19 at the end of my last comment

More College Students Walking Away From Christianity

It's because a lot of churches are giving them temporal substitutes(sports shows, dramas, you name it.....) instead of that which is a well springing up to eternal life.

Pardon me Fundi,

But, "Old Time Pentecost" is the mother of Modern Charismania, and a whole host of megalomaniac denominations and off-spring churches on every corner (See Prov. 7). They both have the same genetic make-up of extra-biblical revelation. This affects their view of every doctrine you mentioned. The Bible alone is the Word of God without "new or fresh revelations" of the "spirit".

See Rev. 20:18-19

Walking away from the "Assembly of God" denomination is not the same as walking away from Christianity. Whoever wrote this article has a "broad" understanding of the "narrow way".

To me it is heartbreaking to see the drift in the Assembies of God and what I call 'old timey' Baptists from what they used to be.

Both groups used to be known for believing the Bible, believing that Christians ought to be holy for God is holy, believing in fervent prayer, especially in fervant prayer for the lost, and that being born again of the Holy Ghost, literally changed by God into a new creation, was absolutely essential to being saved and being a Christian.

It may be more accurate to report what young people and old are walking away from is the compromise, corruption, and deadness of congregations who no longer fear God and seek His face but now seek their own ease and comfort and all the worldlines they can indulge in while still having a form of godliness and be pleasing to the world just so they really don't have to face up to the real power and authority of God to be God in their lives.

I am sure other can word this better than I can.

I am not surprised that young lady left the church. I don't know much about the Assemblies of God, but I do know about many college-age students leaving the church. I got saved at the age of 18, about 2 months after I went to college. I can see why because when many students come to college, they hear so many things like in philosophy and psychology and religion. So much pluralism!! Ugh!! I am 23 now and am glad that I began to grow with the Lord. It does scare me today when I walk around the school that I attend, the University of Georgia. I grew up in the Baptist church and I am now glad that I had some foundation. I guess that I am one of the exceptions out of many students. But I hope that I am not tooting my own horn.

from the article:

"...she walked away from her faith.

Lynn's story is not unusual. An alarming number of college students are severing ties with the church."

Faith is not something that can be walked away from. God's gift of faith to believe in His Son and to obey His Word can be rejected by anyone.

'Severing ties..' is NOT the same thing.

Separating oneself with false Christians is a true Christian's duty. Albeit, it ought never be done hastily and with prejudice. Rather, it ought to be in love and for the keeping of oneself free to be in an actual, committed relationship with his Holy Father.

Walking away from a charismatic church should never surprise anyone, a good outline on part of the problem, Combating Charismatic Theology , and sermon, The Charismatics' Role in Ecumenism.

Actually like many Catholics who started to be able to tell what is black and what is white, something that Loyola, the founder of Jesuits, let Romish Church do for him, Pentecostals, will naturally turn to their reasoning abilities, that by nature are very imperfect.
