Most young adults today don't pray, don't worship and don't read the Bible
Most young adults today don't pray, don't worship and don't read the Bible, a major survey by a Christian research firm shows.
If the trends continue, "the Millennial generation will see churches closing as quickly as GM dealerships," says Thom Rainer, president of LifeWay Christian Resources. In the group's survey of 1,200 18- to 29-year-olds, 72% say they're "really more spiritual than religious."
Among the 65% who call themselves Christian, "many are either mushy Christians or Christians in name only," Rainer says. "Most are just indifferent. The more precisely you try to measure their Christianity, the fewer you find committed to the faith."...
Welcome to Nominal Christianity, where everyone has a Christian opinion but the vast majority hold no particular doctrine except "The Bible" while the vast majority are biblically illiterate. No wonder the world does not listen to Christians, who largely employ themselves as "lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God".
Why do we have missionaries, instead of viewing the modern churches as the mission field of the lost? Jesus and the apostles first went into the corrupt Jewish synogogues, where the "oracles of God" were read, but not taught correctly or obeyed. Apostasy is here, and things are now full circle, those who teach against modern False Christianity will be persecuted by all.
No surprises here is there? Today we observe the decline of Christianity in western society, but only by that which GOD has so ordained. Tomorrow is another day only by the grace of GOD. Praise be to GOD!
