Eternity matters!

It isn’t just another article about young people fleeing the church.

Eternity, past and future, is a real deal.   Something we must all reckon with. The truth about eternity is not subjective, is not circumstantial, and is not a ‘soup du jour.’

There are lots of reasons why the crew Thomas Rainer calls “The Bridger Generation,” is less likely to attend a church on a regular basis.  His data says that anyone born between the years 1977 and 1994 have a 4% chance of have a substantial lifestyle of faith including church participation.

Tragic.  Church attendance isn’t the tragedy as much as how secular and post-modern our culture is becoming.

If you are a Christ-follower, how do you respond to this article?  Are his points valid?  What are you doing to apply your Christ-followership to ‘make disciples?’ What are you doing to change ‘old school’ perceptions while keeping fundamentals of the faith? How are you Christ in the flesh to your school, neighborhood, factory, family, and community?

You are the salt of the earth.  This is a statement of fact.  Become what you are.
