Only Half of Kids Raised Southern Baptist Stay Southern Baptist
Recent research by University of Oklahoma sociologist Samuel Perry concluded that evangelical Protestants have seen a decline in fertility in recent years. It’s a well-known phenomenon that young people drift away from church attendance in their 20s and 30s but return when they get married and have children.

The GSS, which asks respondents about their current religious affiliation as well as what religion were they were raised as, shows that fewer Southern Baptists are sticking with their parents’ denomination.

For much of the ’80s and ’90s, Southern Baptist kids were pretty likely to grow up to become Southern Baptist adults: Seven in ten maintained their SBC identity into adulthood in surveys conducted between 1984 and 1994.

That has declined precipitously. In the most recent surveys conducted between 2015 and 2018, just over half of those raised Southern Baptist were still with the SBC. In ...

Being in any church denomination is not evidence of salvation. All I have to do is show up at a funeral of a family member and listen to the preacher lie to the bereaved about what an incredible person they were having not set foot in a baptist church for 45 years. Often the preacher doesn’t know the deceased or the bereaved. I’m a Christian who attends a baptist church with my wife. Of the four children, only one attends a baptist church. The others either attend a grace church or works hospital hours and the other, I digress.
After they leave home, often the children you raised left long before they said good bye.
Our duty as parents is to teach the children in the way they should go while it is in our hands. The bible says, “Trust in the Lord Yeshua, and you will be saved — you and your household!”” Acts 16:31‬ ‭CJB‬‬. Hold on to this promise and remind God every day. David prayed while there was hope for his son even on a death bed. So don’t give up... claim God’s promise for your children. Don’t give up hope!

Wayfarer, too right. In fact, with apostasy the way it is, it is not far off the time when belonging to a church denomination would indicate the person is NOT a Christian.

Thanks for sharing your wisdom and personal experience, Wayfarer. We can read the pain between the lines. Children are certainly a tremendous blessing, but they come with a lot of risk. Only the Lord knows where their paths lie and in what ways they will walk. For us parents, knowing that there a many ways they could go and then watching them make poor personal choices that we know bring tremendous despair and destruction must be very difficult. May the Lord comfort you and your household this night.

The story is the same in every church. Children today are brainwashed in the schools that God didn’t create the world. Then they come to church and experience religion, instead of a relationship with God and man. It’s ultimately church attendance!

“These words, which I am commanding you today, are to be on your heart. You are to teach them diligently to your children, and speak of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down and when you rise up.” Deuteronomy‬ ‭6:6-7‬ ‭TLV‬‬
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”
‭‭Galatians‬ ‭6:7-8‬ ‭KJV‬‬
The question is do we take the time to sow the right seeds. If we take God’s instructions seriously and act upon it, we will reap a good harvest. But we love... to shift the blame instead of taking responsibility for our own actions. It’s the kind of generation we raise that will take over someday.

It could be said for lots of denominations and even worse for others! Some of them may stay Christian and go to other denominations while others move out of the SBC area of influence.

Human works, actions and endeavors do not 'create' Christians.

Rom 9:15 I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. 16 So then it is not of him that willeth ... "

Quote;
"They believe as a direct result of the working of the grace of God in their hearts. Since every person who is saved confesses this, since every true believer in the world acknowledges that something special has been done for him more than for the unrepentant, the fact is established that God does make a difference. No one has ever accused the Lord that he has made such a difference, so I cannot see why he should be accused for intending to make that difference, which is just the doctrine of election. I am saved, but I know it is not because of any goodness in me, and if you are saved you will freely confess that it is the distinguishing love of God that has made you to be different. The doctrine of election is simply God’s intention to make the difference between people, and you know that this difference exists. While he gives mercy to everyone, he gives more mercy to some so that the mercy already received will be made effective for their eternal salvation." (C.H.Spurgeon)

I'm glad this news item appears because it shows the Root of the Problem in Christianity today, at least in the USA: the Curse of Isaiah 3:12, where children oppress and women rule.
Parents are not doing what the Bible says, which is to 'raise your children in the admonishment of the Lord'
They turn them over to Sunday School (not a Biblical concept) or to govt. schools, and then smartphones and social media take over from there.

Who cares about SB? What about kids growing up in church and not know anything about the Bible just knowing that going to church means fun and game time? Such is the state of our churches.
