A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle
Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):
I don’t need a scientific poll to tell me that the millennial generation, my generation, is the most secular in U.S. history, because we all know it, the evidence is all around us.
There are many reasons why this is the case. One is the culture that millennials grew up in and are living in now on college campuses is secular progressive, and that is pretty much the only world view that Hollywood and pop culture promotes in its movies, music and websites.
With the increasing influence of our secular society, the interest in and commitment to religion has decreased and continues to as more millennials consider themselves either atheists, agnostic, or just not interested in religion, which has meant a decline in religious activity, and church attendance.
Of course, this is not true for all millennials, there are some, a lot actually, that are not only interested in religion but they practice it, and are heartfelt about it.
To those that are serious about their faith, this generation needs you. Millennials need to witness Christians their own age that lead by example, that don’t just talk it, but walk it. This generation is longing for something that is real. That is true. They are seeking answers to serious questions that they have and they need strong Christian examples in their lives at work, and school that will be a light in this dark world.
Christian millennials should stand out from the rest by how we live our lives. To be a leader though, it’ll take sacrifice. You may have to do not something that your friends do. Or not watch some shows and movies and go some places that your friends go, but this is what being a leader is all about. You sacrifice. You make decisions. You hold yourself to a higher standard. This is leadership, and in a world of followers, millennials could use some leaders. You may not have as large a following as Kim Kardashian, but your impact will be much more important and beneficial to your generation.
