This is NOT your father's faith

A recent survey by the Barna Group (complete story found here) shows young adults are “abandoning the biblical faith of their elders” at an alarming rate. The survey points out young adults in their 20s and 30s were at least twice as likely as their elders to have engaged in immoral behavior.

Now I find this survey disturbing, of course, but I do not agree with the premise statement of the survey that young adults have “abandoned the biblical faith of their elders.” The real problem is that young adults have never even been introduced to the biblical faith of their elders. They have never been fed the meat of the Word. They are spiritual babes if they are saved at all. Easy believe-ism and “seeker sensitivity” have replaced sound doctrine. So, rather than learning the biblical faith, kids these days are learning this instead.

Anyone have anything for a headache?
