A Tough Season for Christians

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.

Thanks to church planting coach Jim Griffith for the link to a The New York Times op ed “A Tough Season for Believers“.
