More Young People Are Moving Away From Religion, But Why?

One-fifth of Americans are religiously unaffiliated — higher than at any time in recent U.S. history — and those younger than 30 especially seem to be drifting from organized religion. A third of young Americans say they don't belong to any religion.

NPR Morning Edition co-host David Greene wanted to understand why, so he gathered a roundtable of young people at a synagogue in Washington, D.C. The Historic 6th & I Synagogue seemed like the right venue: It's both a holy and secular place that has everything from religious services to rock concerts. Greene speaks with six people — three young women and three young men — all struggling with the role of faith and religion in their lives. ...

I agree with most of the sentiments posted here. A lot of the churches--that is to say part of religion--actually drive more people out than they bring in not because they are being outwardly offensive to the believer, but they are actually being too inclusive. The modern mega-church tries to be politically correct at every turn so that they can keep their status. Out of their desire to be inoffensive they are unwilling to take the Biblical stand on major issues. Many Christians simply depart from them, but they haven't lost their faiths. That is not to say a person needs to keep shopping around for the "perfect" church, but certain denominations: particularly those that support abortion, homosexual marriage, and homosexual church leaders should expect to lose membership.

Yes, it is sad how many Christians believe in abortion and contraception. The blood of these children cries out to God as Abel's blood. Honestly I was speaking to narrow when i said that we need preachers who believe and preach the Bible. Yes, the Holy Spirit must work in the hearts of the people who hear the Word. But the word also need to be preached rightly. Part of that is proper application. Not just merely verse by verse preaching.

With contraception flowing like Niagara Falls (circa 1960), unprecedented fornication rates and no 'clean-up operation' available, the pent-up demand for abortion was overwhelming. By 1972, the brake-less Sexual Revolution freight train was barreling down on the Burger Court which was obliged to find Constitutional "penumbra" and "emanations" and -- find them they did -- when they handed down Roe (1973).

Young people (those who survived the abortion and abortifacients gauntlets) will continue to flood out of the church for sexcapades until the elders awaken to teach this hard truth: contraception is the cause of this unmitigated mess. Clinical abortion can never end until the birth control faucet is first turned off in the church. This starts with pastors. If the average pastor in your denomination has but two children (e.g., the SBC), it has blown its denominational brains out.

Young people are leaving in droves because they can spot a corpse when they see one.

hearing the preaching of the bible is just a mental excercise until it is applied (lived through the Holy Spirit).... and the application is not often taught because its offensive. this is even true in the verse by verse churches.

God builds the true church. and God purifies His church. Narrow is the way.

imagine for a minute a pastor applying the "you knit me together in my mother's womb" scripture to the common practice of birth control pill abortifacients in the congregation! his wife would be livid!

can we dabble in abortion? really?

so let's just apply scriptures in general terms, not to offend, and yet not to admonish and encourage either.

we may hear of CT tragedy, what of the one in TX involving maybe 100 girls after a particular procedure?

silence at the pulpit...

all I can say is, if we loved one another, we would say something. our fear, endeavors, whatever it may be are trumping the love of the brethren.... for those in tribulation, they often leave.

can not the younger generation sense the superficiality..... many know about the unjust foreign adventures, having to make decisions... where is the wise counsel? "don't worry, america is special" is now falling on deaf ears.

Well, I'm young and Christian. I think one reason so many young people are leaving the Christian church is because so many churches don't really preach the bible. They don't preach it because they don't believe it. So, young people don't really know the bible, even if they grew up in church. WE NEED REAL PREACHERS WHO BELIEVE AND PREACH THE LIVING WORD OF GOD.

John, all these things may indeed put people off "established" religion, and I am sure in many cases it does. However, the Christian's faith is not in anything of man, but in the Lord Jesus Christ, the perfect one of whom we can have no complaint. Therefore if one wanders from "the faith", citing hypocrisy, doctrinal confusion, and a multiplicity of denominations, it is highly likely that one has not experienced the new birth, without which he cannot see or enter the kingdom of heaven. The one who is truly following the Lord Jesus Christ will still follow him, no matter if it be alone due to the aforementioned.

Hello Carter,I!

Wow, I have been in Pensacola and have attended Mount Zion Bible, and it was wonderful. You can listen to Jeff Polard on this site, and also visit chapel library dot org. I hope you get a change to visit! There are some families with children in the military there. The place is alive. If it were closer I would be there.

I hope the best for you friend!

Hi Carter, is this due to things that our country has ordered you to do, going against your Christian, ethics, morals, etc? Or, are you just speaking of personal issues that you battle?
