A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle
Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):
Attention Christian church in America! You are losing millennials! This is a red alert! Attention! Attention! Cue the Drudge Report siren! A Fox News alert! You are losing millennials!
Marketwatch reports that millennials are turning away from religion and turning to spirituality including the fake science of astrology, witchcraft and the occult. They’re attending classes, downloading astrology apps, and there is even a monthly subscription box service that will deliver crystals, and incense at your door step that uses energy from the current moon cycle. Urban Outfitters sells sage for $18.
The Pew Research Center found that those between 18-29, 67% of them in 2012 never doubted the existence of God which is a drop from 81% in 2007.
This is serious. Christians need to take note. Houses of worship need to do more to reach out to millennials because they trying to find answers. They are seeking truth. They are seeking peace. They need hope and they’re not gonna find it in reading tarot cards or practicing witchcraft.
All of us need to do more to reach out to millennials and to show them love, compassion and share the truth with them. They’re open to it, we just gotta be open to sharing it with them.
