A lot of ink is being spilled right now about the future of Christianity in America. A recent Pew study showed that younger people are walking away from the faith with over 20% claiming “no religion” (click on the above image).
Dave Kinnaman and Gabe Lyons found that many younger people believe that Christians are Unchristian.
Christianity Today ran a similar article recently entitled “The Leavers: Young Doubters Exit the Church”.
Will Christianity hold it’s ground, morph, or will America become more secularized like Western Europe? Here is a great Christmas op ed piece about that very issue that I find motivating. It would be great sermon material.
