Hope and Change: “Most young adults today don’t pray, don’t worship and don’t read the Bible”.

Good news from USAToday:

Most young adults today don’t pray, don’t worship and don’t read the Bible

If the trends continue, “the Millennial generation will see churches closing as quickly as GM dealerships,” says Thom Rainer, president of LifeWay Christian Resources. In the group’s survey of 1,200 18- to 29-year-olds, 72% say they’re “really more spiritual than religious.”

And:

Among the 65% who call themselves Christian, “many are either mushy Christians or Christians in name only,” Rainer says. “Most are just indifferent. The more precisely you try to measure their Christianity, the fewer you find committed to the faith.”

Read the whole article. It is heartwarming.

    Awesome!, more are dumping religion for spirituality and a relationship with Christ. We need less religion and more authentic relationships.

    Then again I have my doubts. Society is angrier and more hateful towards one another than ever.

    How did you come to such a conclusion?
    Sources, ecidences, proofs?

    Isn’t someone thinking they have a relationship with Christ considered a relgion? Authentic relationships are with humans, not imaginary friends.

    My ecidences PRS? I expect it from Severin but you must be just a follower.

    My ecidence is living in society. My source is traveling the nation and my proof is Severin doesn’t live in the US thus he hasn’t a clue.

    “My ecidence is living in society.”

    You never lived in societies in the past, to be able to make a difference. Neither did I, but i am trying to compare situations from reading history.

    I am not positive, but it is my impression that today’s modern societies are more “docile” than societies in past.One big argument to this is the fact that atom bomb was never used after the WWII, although there were enough of them to destroy the earth 500 or 1000 times.

    If so, it is not thanks to religions or Jesus: it is because people are getting more educated and are voting for less bad people to rule them.

    Dear A real-ist,
    Jesus is a human, not an “imaginary friend”.

    “Dear A real-ist,
    Jesus is a human, not an “imaginary friend”.”

    No, Jesus WAS a normal human whom people exagerated stories that turned into a myth that people think is real. Jesus died, but you believers think he had risen and still lives as a God. So, yes, he is an imaginary friend now. It is amazing what people believe just because they read it somewhere or people told them about it, when no one has any real evidence of it being true. If Jesus floated down from the heaven in the clouds and we all saw him and could video record him, then yes, he would be real. Speaking of a heaven, why have so many people pictured heaven as being on top of the clouds? Don’t we all know what the clouds are now and how they formed? And when airplaines fly above the clouds, why don’t we see angels playing harps? Hmmmm…..

    to: the dumbass who calls himself “A-real-ist”

    if you dnt believe in god and his son jesus christ then dnt. who cares!!!! but dnt tell those of us that do believe in god that we are wrong. if you dnt care about god then why do you care so much on proving us wrong. religion is based on faith. if you had faith then you would understand christians, but you dnt.

    Jenny, you are the one coming to the Athiest website. And by the way, I did have faith for most of my life and slowly realized faith just means believing in something that doesn’t really exist.

    Now realist, the atheist website is to convert the religious, remember? That is the purpose.

    Too bad you lost your faith. The Bible warns about that as well. Eternity is a long time, for your sake I hope you are right.
