WALKING AWAY FROM CHRISTIANITY


 — From Marc5Solas — Top 10 Reasons Our Kids Leave Church.

The statistics are jaw-droppingly horrific: 70% of youth stop attending church when they graduate from High School. Nearly a decade later, about half return to church.

Let’s just be honest, most of our churches are sending youth into the world embarrassingly ignorant of our faith. How could we not? We’ve jettisoned catechesis, sold them on “deeds not creeds” and encouraged them to start the quest to find “God’s plan for their life”.

All 10 reasons below. This is a penetrating analysis of our youth walking away. Lots of good points and insights here.While this is from an Evangelical perspective, it applies to all branches of Christianity here.
