Keeping the Faith
A new study released today by The Barna Group shows that “despite strong levels of spiritual activity during the teen years, most twentysomethings disengage from active participation in the Christian faith during their young adult years – and often beyond that.” Many of them simply lose interest, and it’s hard to blame them. After all, as Dorothy Sayers asked more than 50 years ago, “How can anyone remain interested in a religion which seems to have no concern with nine-tenths of his life?” That’s why it’s so important (as I’ve argued before) that our covenant children be taught in home schools or Christian schools. They need to learn that Christianity is concerned with ten-tenths of their lives.
