Teens Fleeing Religion

America’s rising generation of adults are the least religiously observant of any generation in six decades, determined an expansive study led by Jean Twenge, a psychology professor at San Diego State.

‚ÄúUnlike previous studies, ours is able to show that millennials‚Äô lower religious involvement is due to cultural change, not to millennials being young and unsettled,‚ÄĚ Twenge says in a San Diego State University news release. .

Maybe the message of the late Harold Camping--that the 'Church Age' is over--has finally been heard by the teens! Maybe there is a Facebook page or Twitter account that is promoting his views.
When people in the US of A think of 'church,' they think of the brick and mortar, wood and stone, cement and stained glass windows, and don't forget the pipe organ.

I think teens are a bit tired of the 'same old same old' (sorry, fans of "Give Me That Old Time Religion" song).

Christopher,
This little quote from Bishop Hall sums it up quite nicely...
"It is not the arithmetic of our prayers, how many they are; nor the rhetoric of our prayers, how eloquent they be; nor the geometry of our prayers, how long they be; nor the music of our prayers, how sweet our voice may be; nor the method of our prayers, how orderly they may be; nor even the theology of our prayers-- how good the doctrine may be....which God cares for.
Fervency of spirit is that which avails much!

Christopher,what Unprofitable says is true,I just wanted to say that when I get "overwhelmed" with my growing prayer list,I am relieved and in awe to consider how wonderful the Lord is and how much He cares for us. We understand how "overwhelming" it can be and,yet,how able is our Lord? And how comforting that He knows each and everyone of us,even the hairs on our heads,even when a sparrow falls. Sometimes it's an effort for me to speak all the names and then I all the more realize how unfathomable His Love is.
And He already knows what we have need of. Prayer is really a privilege for us.
Being in His Word and asking Him for us to be sensitive to His Spirit helps us in our prayer time...oh yeah,which,really is a continual process any way. There may be times set aside for prayer but we are to pray without ceasing.
...just a few thoughts.
It also helps me to pray for others as if I were praying for myself.

Thanks SC...I think I may have asked too many deep questions in one post...ha-ha. Let me narrow it down to one because I'd really like to get some mature thoughts...
Specific prayers: how often/long? Say I'm praying for, say...a persons salvation. Would you all pray each day for a lifetime, even though prayer lists grow with time, becoming overwhelming? Or, would you pray a few times, or even once knowing that you have been heard and move on to other issues, requests, etc? I'm asking because there is just so much to pray for and wondering if repetition is overkill because are heard the first time(?)
Hey Christopher, great questions. The verbs in the Greek for ask, seek and knock in Matthew 7:7 are such that it means ask and keep on asking, seek and keep on seeking, knock and keep on knocking.

Hello Christopher,I think that it might help to know that God is less concerned about the eloquence of our prayers than with intent/substance and He provides Holy Spirit to intercede for us as well.
I agree with you and am blessed to hear others who pray very sweetly.I think that God blesses us in that as well to hear their prayers...they are our prayers as well.
I used to feel like you,feeling that my prayers were inadequate until I realized that it is more a privilege and not an "obligation" or requirement to be able to pray to a Living God who loves us.
Of course, being in His Word daily helps as well which is probably why God's Word is our "daily Bread". One day without it leaves us notably deficient.

I'm a terrible prayer. Once in a while it will flow nicely, but most times, I m sound like an idiot. I have always been able to express my thoughts nicely in writing, but those same thoughts don't flow the same when speaking because I can't organize them on the fly. Any suggestions? I was thinking that writing things down might help, but not sure if I want to read off a sheet of paper...ha-ha. I always admire those who stand up, impromptu, and are able to pray very nicely. For example, I know what to pray for specificly, like, say...an unsaved acquaintance, or the less fortunate, etc, but once I say, "ok, I'd like to pray for "Chris' salvation", I begin to fumble and draw a blank. I also wonder wonder if a sentence or two is sufficient and for how long/often the same prayers should be prayed, or is once enough? I know, silly questions, I guess, but never sure if we are to pray for the same thing over and over, for life, or what. My main reason for asking is because it would seem that prayer lists would become very, very long as time goes on. This might be all over the place, but still pretty tired so not thinking to clearly yet.

part 2 video

It can be found on you tube but the advantage of use the SermonAudio links is you can download them to watch or listen at your convenience.

Thanks John UK

In many of Paul's letters to the churches he addresses areas of inaccurate doctrinal issues that was being taught or perpetrated in the church. The Corinthian church had many doctrinal and spiritual issues. Where do we see his admonition to any body of believers in any of the churches to stop their attendance for the doctrinal anomolies? (not talking about false churches that hold the truth in unrighteousness) The admonition of our Lord to those in the church was to repent from their false ways, not to remove themselves from the church. (oh yes remove the false teachers not the congregants)

This site in itself (this is not a blanket endorsement of all sermons on the site) has hundreds of churches and pastors from all over this nation and other countries who faithfully preach the Word of God.

We have brethren overseas that walk, not ride, miles to gather together to worship God as a body of believers. There are many who risk imprisionment or death to gather together for corporate worship.

The only perfect church will be gathered in heaven above. I do understand that some live in areas where there are no churches that teach and preach the Word of God, I would deem that a providential hindrance and glad you have opportunity to fellowship here.

Thanks GS, also for US's instructive post, and others. Thanks to Rodney also, dear brother.

I'd like to be an encouragement to Ladybug here, for a moment.

"No one is disputing a gathering of true believers, led by a man that has truly been called of God. However, as many can attest to here, such gatherings are nearly impossible to find in this country," you said.

Think about Jerusalem, after Pentecost, when the body of believers increased dramatically. But there was only any evangelistic work going on in the city, which was not what Jesus wanted. So he brought on the persecution to achieve his end. The Apostles remained in the city, but thousands fled from there, not knowing where they went, and not one "ordained man" among them. What they did know was that there was no churches in all the new places they went. Note that, NO churches. But...

Acts 8:4 KJV
(4) Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.

And everywhere they went, new little churches were formed, based upon the "simplicity that is in Christ". And these new churches met in houses. Let us take encouragement from this and GO FOR IT.

I think we live in very difficult days, when it comes to aligning ourselves with a group of believers. Whoever we join with, there will be differences of opinion. And BTW, my opinion will not always be correct. LTRU

Yet it is possible, and necessary, in order to please God and further the work of his kingdom, that believers meet together regularly on the Lord's Day, even if it be only two or three, for disciplined worship and breaking of bread and teaching.

To encourage others here to step out in faith, if you have no local church, why not start one in your home? Are you praying earnestly for an assembly? Did you know that God allows you to begin a work at home? Small beginnings can become great adventures in faith.

As Ryle says, it all comes down to what we desire....

‚ÄúTell me what a man does in the matter of Bible-reading and praying, in the matter of Sunday, public worship, and the Lord's Supper, and I will soon tell you what he is, and on which road he is travelling.‚ÄĚ JC Ryle

Other great quotes worth reading at:

http://www.goodreads.com/author/quotes/139694.J_C_Ryle?page=2

And as a result of your gathering together, some precious souls may be converted unto God, who will be most thankful to you for introducing them to Christian things.
