Millennials 'talk to God' but are less interested in religion
While just over half of 18 to 34-year-olds would say they 'look to religion', almost two thirds would say they 'talk to God', a new study has found.
The findings are from the Integrated Innovation Institute at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, which asked 2,000 Millennials about their attitudes towards faith and its interaction with their daily lives.
The overall results showed that 52 per cent say they "look to religion" and that 62 per cent "talk to God".
That can be rough, GS. Before going into business for myself, I was managing businesses most of my working life. The last place I ran was Caterpillar in MA. I was in Charge of many teamsters and machinists and what a challenge that was if you're in a different place than them I wasn't a Christian, but I always found foul language, sexual innuendo, crude jokes, storys, etc, offensive. Tough environment, like you, and they'll eat a person alive if they don't stand their ground. Always had to be a little tougher or they would have lost respect and trampled me.
Thanks penned and Dorcas. Im thankful that I work with a pastor of an Independent Baptist Church, his fellowship is a blessing, even if I dont agree with him on some things. Except for him, my other co workers are worldly, and perverted (I work in a mechanic shop, working on 18 wheelers).
that's right, GS, you are a real encouragement here, we've gone through many of the same things. we see a lot of compromise, people believe what tickles their ears and you talk with nonChristians they often have more sense..... which is really troubling. but then you'll find a gem of a Christian that has discernment and the love of Christ, and that is a great treasure!
I agree to a point. What I really wish is that the pastors of the "new calvinism" would take note regarding their associations. Even if they do all way end up having is a stupid conferrence when what we need to do is draw a line in the sand and tell these pastors to repent and stop leading these people astray about christianity.

GS.....my husband and myself are of the baby boomer generation, and we are experiencing the same as you in our age group. Lots of church talk, but none have a desire to fellowship around the things of the Lord Jesus and His precious word. But you have certainly refreshed me over the past year with your posts!

Paul felt the same way,
For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better (Phillipians 1:23)
(I Thessaloinians 4:15-18) For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.Therefore comfort one another with these words
