    I was hoping that they would touch on the actual reason they are leaving. Jesus said it in John 3:17-21….They Love sin, darkness and refused to come to the light. You can prove the Resurrection to a youngster beyond a reasonable doubt, it is very hard to overcome the temptations in the world and the hormons hitting youth for the first time.
    If you give them a good strong base, when they leave, they will come back, no doubt !

    I have seen 90% of young people walk away, for a few reasons: parents never had faith and were simply checking it off the list to get their kids confirmed. ✔ done. Married…✔ done. Having a baby need to get baptized…✔ done. Many are just going to church for tradition and checking boxes. Sadly.

    There are other reasons.
    Most churches are not teaching all of God with the right words and proper universal context.
    Churches are bribing people with "free" coffee, donuts, pizza and even a "chance at winning a big flat screen TV".
    They give bad reasons such as "Read your bible." or "Pray." or some random verse to give some "Magical insight" into their problems.
    Many kids need advice outside of the church but that includes it and God.
    We are NOT a simple bunch of creatures. God made us the most complicated living things on this planet. Mind, body, emotions, feelings, etc.
    The Bible is an beginner's guide to life and this world. It takes a good family, friends, similar minded people, and faith to understand it.

    There’s a JESUS REVIVAL happening right now but it looks different than everything in the past because our Lord is correcting what’s gone wrong in the past. Kids are READING THE BIBLE Again and spending time to interpret it for THEMSELVES!

    Go on TikTok. The Holy Spirit is being POURED OUT on the younger generations just as he promised💪🏼🙏🙏🙏

    I came to church for my kids but I was totally convicted and my life is changed forever. It's hard for my husband to live a life like Jesus because of society. He is scared. We need more open Christian men so young men can feel confident being open.

    Hmmm, from the scuttlebutt I'm hearing, it's the hypocrisy of the religious leaders and moral authorities that make people quit. That's why they come back when they have kids – they believe in morality, and they don't believe they will be hypocritical believers. They also suddenly really really really need the help of Jesus to protect and shepherd their beloved children in this fallen world.
    You want the kids to stay in church? Make sure the church is transparent, merciful, full of grace and Biblical truth, and that the entire Bible is taught, because the Bible speaks of Jesus.
