Why Youth Are Leaving the Church: Politics, Postmodernity, or Pure Rebellion?

Dec. 31, 2011 - For years teens and young adults have been leaving their churches. They usually still consider themselves Christians, but are affected by a number of factors. For one thing, it has always been true that the younger generation has a tendency to rebel against the standards of their elders. More recently many of them have broken ranks with the conservative politics of their parents. They are reacting to candidates that they perceive are religious hypocrites.

Young people are also influenced by postmodern thinking that posits a new concept of tolerance and leaves them with a dislike of controversy and an unwillingness to fight unpopular moral issues. Alex Mason of the Family Policy Network said, "They’ve bought into the lie that truth can be different for everyone, which often means they become unwilling to tell their homosexual friend that his behavior is immoral, or their pregnant friend that an abortion would be sinful."

David Kinnaman, president of the faith-based research organization Barna Group, says that a possible solution for the youth departure is the formation of "intergenerational relationships" within the congregation.

Focus on the Females

July 19, 2010 - Dr. James Dobson has written "Bringing Up Girls," a sequel to Bringing Up Boys, which has sold more than two million copies to date. He says that between "sexting," cyber bullying, and bikinis with padded tops for 7-year-olds, mainstream culture doesn't offer girls a pretty picture.

Study Finds New Abstinence-Only Program Works

Feb. 3, 2010 - A recent study of a course promoting abstinence shows that students around the age of 12 see the drawbacks to sexual activity at their age.
The abstinence-only program was based on social psychology theories about what motivates behavior. It encouraged abstinence as a way to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.
