THE YOUTH CRISIS IN AMERICA
DID YOU KNOW?
The American Church is LOSING the War for the Next Generation
A majority of twenty-somethings – 61% of today’s young adults – had been churched at one point during their teen years but they are now spiritually disengaged.
(Most Twentysomethings Put Christianity on the Shelf…, Barna Study 2006)
Students were asked “Why did they fall away from the faith in which they were raised?”
“It didn’t make any sense anymore.”
“Some stuff is too far-fetched for me to believe.”
“I think scientifically and there is no real proof.”
“Too many questions that can’t be answered.”
(Soul Searching, Smith and Denton, 2005)
Many Fall Away Because They Do NOT Have Answers to Key Questions
What proof is there for God's existence?
If God is all-powerful and all-knowing, why would He allow evil in the world?
There are hundreds of religions. How do you know yours is the correct one?
How can the Bible be the Word of God when it has so many errors and contradictions in it?
If God knows everything, then why did He create the devil, knowing the devil would cause billions to suffer and die?
God didn't create the universe, and science will eventually prove it.
Knowing the Answers Can CRUSH DOUBT
Faith Defender Ministries provides the answers to these questions in Luke's books or during presentations.
