6 reasons why our youth leave the church

Reason #1 – Churches seem overprotective.
Reason #2 – Teens’ and twentysomethings’ experience of Christianity is shallow.
Reason #3 – Churches come across as antagonistic to science.
Reason #4 – Young Christians’ church experiences related to sexuality are often simplistic, judgmental.
Reason #5 – They wrestle with the exclusive nature of Christianity.
Reason #6 – The church feels unfriendly to those who doubt.

#7- Bearing false witness, and be judged by so called christians with slandering gossipping tounges, who scrutinize their every move, saying your sin, is worse that my sin, oh but “they don’t sin” Well my Father of Heaven, God, Lord Jesus, tells me, they are not of HIM, and that they will not enter in, and I must Love them, Pray for them, and Preserve, standfasr, and Push forward, In JESUS NAME…
I HOPE THAT HELPS SOMEONE.
I KNOW IT IS FOR MANY.
KEEP GOING, YOU ARE DOING AND AMAZING MOVE FOR GOD, NO ONE ELSE. A-Men

The main one that really counts is #2. Yes, Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life. There is no other way to God the Father. We derive our life and identity from Him and He will judge the living and the dead. God is the creator of the universe and of man and is the one who holds them in His hand and they exist by the power of His Word.

What of the Spirit’s power is demonstrated to the youth who are fascinated by the extreme. The Spirit is the lure for the world, who even the Pentecostal denominations have systematically, methodically and intentionally dismissed from ministry in the Church…at every level. What do Church leaders think will happen when they dismiss the Spirit who proceeds from the Father, the Spirit of Jesus, the Spirit of truth, etc, from the building? How will the Church keep fish in the net, let alone fish for more fish, without following THE NET, the blessed Spirit!?

Peek behind the curtain of some “progressive” or “hip” evangelical churches, past the savvy technology and secular music, and you will find more than just a contemporary worship service. You’ll find faith leaders encouraging young evangelicals to trade in their Christian convictions for a gospel filled with compromise. They’re slowly attempting to give evangelicalism an “update”—and the change is not for the good. http://www.charismamag.com/life/culture/22494-how-the-new-christian-left-is-twisting-the-gospel

Tammy Mills Asen Shudov We are proud of you guys, that in these hard times and dreadful world we live in, a young prophetic generation is taking a stand for God. Don’t ever let anyone take your God-given purity and passion for the Kingdom and trade it for religious relevance, all-in-one pluralism or worldly popularity. We all pray that your generation would be able to fix what we’ve missed and corrupted…
