This morning I’ve come across this article entitled “Six Reasons Young Christians Leave Church”
As I was reading it, I couldn’t help myself smiling at the results of the poll. I myself have been talking about these 6 reasons and some more for quite some time. So what and who needs to change? Fundamentalism or overly conservative worldviews may find the fault in the young people or tell us that they are not mature enough, I think it is high time for the church to look at herself and what she’s doing with what she is given. Even labels such as Fundamentalist or Conservative are misleading and may make us miss the point and it is usually more complicated than that. However, I am not inclined to blame these kids who voiced their concerns in this poll because I myself see the exact same faults committed by the more conservative evangelical folk as a whole (surely there’s another side of the coin at the other end of the spectrum). So what say ye? How can we proceed from here?
