In this episode, I’m joined by two awesome guests: Tim Hawkins, the Worship Pastor at Neighborhood Church, and Mark Toney, our Young Adults Pastor. We’re talking about Young Adults and the Church. What are some of the struggles, and what are some of the questions.
We talk issues of truth, inter-generational dynamics, and sexuality. Mark brings questions from our young adults ministry, and it’s a great conversation.
The book mentioned in the podcast is called Christians Are Hate-Filled Hypocrites and other Lies You’ve Been Told, by Bradley Wright. You can find it here on Amazon. Here are some surprises you’ll find:
• Evangelicals are more respected by society today than they were twenty years ago.
• Divorce rates of Christian couples are lower than those of nonbelievers.
• The percentage of young people who attend church has held steady over the past twenty years.
All these statements are true, yet we’ve been told the opposite time and time again. Why is the church being misled? And what is the true state of Christianity in America today?
Sociologist Brad Wright shatters popular myths by sifting through the best available data. He reveals how Christians are doing when it comes to everything from marriage and morality to church growth and public perception. While not all the news is good, it turns out there is a wealth of encouraging information that we’re not being told.
Get the truth behind the statistics you’ve been hearing and how the numbers are being manipulated, and discover what is really happening in American Christianity.
